Really? Nice! Though I'll hate not having an "excuse" to go Buc-ee's for it ;-)

2 stroke (& some 4?) engines hate ethanol. It degrades fuel lines and gums up carburetors. Old engines and equipment also weren't designed to resist ethanol which poses different chemical problems than straight gas.

I mostly want it for my 2008 Boxster- older engine and cleaner burn.

Saw a post on nextdoor a few days ago that the owner is trying to rezone the land to commercial and clearing it to start marketing to businesses.

I use it for my lawnmower. Unlike regular gas, it doesn't mess up the engine if it sits unused awhile. Before I flipped to Ethanol-free, I had to have my mower repaired multiple times because I didn't drain the gas before putting it away since I never knew how long it would go unused.

Briarcrest Chick-Fil-a opened up and shut down half of Briarcrest in the process. At one point in time during lunch, cars were lined up halfway to the Murphy's entrance on Briarcrest for the drive thru. I'm not saying I didn't miss me some nuggets but dang.

I dont get the appeal of Chik fil a. Also, that new chip seal on Briarcrest is the worst.

I like Chick Fil-A. I don't get Whataburger's appeal. To each their own.

You are correct - to each their own. I meant that I don't get the appeal of sitting in a long-*ss line for chicken when there are other fast food places with chicken that are just as good. And Whataburger is awesome.

I wouldn't wait in a long line at Chick Fil A either!

Yep. The CS location is gone from the Fuddrucker's website.

It was owned by the Pappas family. They are having financial problems related to Luby's and Fuddruckers. Doubt that Pappadeux's will ever be built in CS. In fact, several of them and Pappacito's have been closed down for good in the Houston area. Without the students here, CS is suffering really bad. Sad.

It's going to get worse before it gets better if we keep everything shut down, and especially if there is no football.

Lubys is publicly held, and they brought papas to manage it.

The Pappas family are the major shareholders. That's why they got into a big fight with Phil Gramm and his son. The Gramms owned just enough stock to have a say in how the business is run. But, again, the Pappas family own the major part of the company. They are not just the management of the company. That has been documented in major newspapers including the Wall Street Journal.

Last numbers I saw was Harris and Chris papas own about 37% and bandera the Gramm owned hedge fund own close to 10%, but this was late 2019. So between both groups they held less than half of the company. The papas other establishments are private and not part of the Lubys bankruptcy
