Alcohol free gas available?

I use alcohol free gasoline in my 800w portable 4 cycle inverter generator and in my Tohatsu 2 cycle 5 hp outboard motor. The generator manual specifies that alcohol free gas be used.

Currently I'm in the southeastern US and alcohol free gasoline is easy to find everywhere.

Is alcohol free gasoline readily available in the Caribbean and Central America? In Europe?

Thanks for your replies.

Re: Alcohol free gas available?

they generally do not put ethanol in gasoline south of the Rio Grande. They have it in Brazil (big producer of ethanol) and in some places in Europe, In the caribbean and the rest of South America they have no ethanol sources to contaminate the gasoline with.
