Re: Looking To Buy A New Car

Another thing to do is to NOT fill up with gas that has an ethanol blend...

If I fill my truck with 93 octane with an ethanol blend, I'll get about 11-12mpg in town, and about 12-13 on the highway.

If I fill up with 93 octane with NO ethanol, I get about 13-14 in town, and about 14-15 on the highway.

Most everyone I know who has tested their 2-3 year old vehicle with and without ethanol blended gas, get far better mileage and performance with the NON-ethanol gasoline.
