Anyone know of a site that lists local stations that sell non-alcohol gasoline?

Never had an issue with vapor lock. On the way back from Georgia a couple of weeks ago we decided to get some fuel before we crossed the line into Florida as gas is so much cheaper in Georgia. I guess I put 20 dollars into the boat before I saw the stupid 10% ethonal sign. Stopped the pump and filled it up in Florida at our non ethonal station. Last week on the lake it took forever for the boat to crank. She always did but I didn't like having to turn it over that much. I am amazed that little amount could have caused this issue.

Not to mention youre putting ethanol into a plastic gas tank.

Yes, I would use the blue stabil every time you fill the boat up !!!

ditto - I use it every time

however, on extremely hot days after running the boat hard, I have still experienced vapor lock
