From what I've seen in the GTA all 87 fuels are marked as having up to 10% ethanol so yes, likely. Not suggesting some gas stations in other parts of Canada may use a different blend.

No, not all 87 gas in Canada contains Ethanol.

But they are hard to find, especially in cities, and likely a no-name brand station.

More of them in less populated areas and cottage country, particularly where there are marinas.

When oil companies have to sell a certain percentage of ethanol blended fuel (90% ?), for their convenience they use the high population areas to satisfy that quota,
and don't bother doing anything in the less populated regions.

No station in Canada should have any more than 10% in any grade that I know of. (Different story in the USA.)

If you live in the GTA, you might want to check out Mega Gas at 1121 Broadview: http://pure-gas.org/index.jsp?stateprov=ON

Don't know how accurate or current that website is though.

Is Shell 91 the only ethanol free fuel that's more commonly available?
