I had replace with new steel braided line every year.
I buy my gasoline locally at a Federated Co-op filling station, and was told that their premium grade did not contain ethanol.

IIRC, the percentages were:
Regular 10%
Mid-Grade 5%
Premium 0%

I have googled this, and it sounds like there is a push for this in the US, but it appears that you are likely correct in what you say.
Ethanol Free Premium Coalition

All I can say to that is to make your voices heard ... hopefully get some legislation?
