ethanol-free 91-octane gas in NH?

I will be travelling to New Hampshire this weekend (my first time taking the 135i to the US!), and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good gas station that has ethanol-free 91-octane gas... Mobil? Citgo?... thanks!

I don't even know of 91 octane gas for sale around here. I'm pretty sure there isn't any gas around here without ethanol

In Northern/ Middle parts of NH sometimes all that is available is 91. Gotta really search for 93.

91 is all I need - ethanol-free would be a bonus

Rachel - Have you ever driven the Kancamagus Highway (Hwy 112) between Lincoln and Conway? I'll be going with my wife and some friends to Tanger Outlet in Tilton, and plan on hitting that stretch on the way home. I've heard it's a great driving road...

Used to have a ski place in Lincoln, right at the start of the Kanc. VERY fun road, as long as you don't get stuck behind a line of RVs. Also, alternate path would be Bear Notch Road, which swings you around to the Northern end of N. Conway.

Guilty admission: I've made multiple people ill (like pull over, I'm about to puke sick) on that road. I used to keep a record of my times from end to end... forget what it was down to.

I 2nd Bear Notch Rd, it was recently paved too, so that's an extra bonus!

Thanks for the enthusiastic feedback guys... can't wait to drive the "Kanc"! My would-be passengers are already telling me to ensure I have motion sickness pills on hand for them!!
