I had a play with my version of Matlab and found the same result. I think what you've stumbled on is a floating point error. There is a workaround:
t = 0:0.1:1.8;
find(round(t, 10) == 0.3)
ans = 4
This rounds all the elements of t to 10 significant figures before performing find.

hello
no , matlab tells you that it could NOT find an exact match to value = 0.3 (there must be a very tiny numerical difference , so use method with a tolerance (to be defined) :
ind = find(abs(t - 0.3)<tol)
