Awful stuff that ethanol is.

I can't say for sure, but I'd suggest looking really closely at the pump next time, just in case. My understanding is that only the premium at most stations is ethanol free:
"New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, PEI: all premium grade gasoline" [is ethanol-free]

From this discussion, it sounds like Halifax is like the west coast re ethanol in fuel:
