Carbs and ethanol blended gas; any place to get the good stuff?

I know they have to sell that here, but this stuff's really gunking my carbs up. I had them cleaned about a month ago, but the bike's starting to act up again like it was before. I try to ride it as much as I can and not let it sit, but with the weather lately I've only gotten on it maybe two or three days a week on average. I run Chevron 93 through it almost exclusively, and Patrick suggested a couple of additives to control the water in the gas, but is there any way to find better gas to begin with? Are there any stations that still sell gas with MTBE instead of ethanol?

You might want to install an inline fuel filter. It's hard to believe that the gas is doing that because if it was we would all be having that problem.
Maybe you just got some in the tank and a filter would help.

If I had a safe place to keep it, I'd go out to the country and fill up a few drums with the good unblended stuff. It's mainly a problem for bikes with carbs - FI bikes not so much.
