Stations that sell E10 (read: Stations to avoid)

Well I'm going to avoid it ATM because it yields less MPG.

Well... in theory, you

Well... in theory, you should be able to get better mileage from E10... as it should increase the octane of the gas... but i dunno if 10% ethanol is enough (yes, it's from corn).

When E85 becomes mainstream, or I can get a good supply of it from work, I'll be rebuilding my VX motor to take full advantage of the higher octane, so I should be able to actually get BETTER mileage with it.

E10

If you got your best mileage in April or May it was definately not the gasoline.

However there is a theory that I've heard at the track that E10 gives better hwy mileage. Very hard to say either way for me without scangauge and the like..
Rumor also says E10 yields less mileage in city driving..

e10 does not give better gas

e10 does not give better gas mileage. yes it has a higher octane, but that doesnt matter if its being to used to raise the octane. when burned, it has a significantly smaller number of btus, thus more of it needs to be burned to make the same power as gasoline.

there is A LOT of misinformation out there about ethanol and a lot of it is to just fuel the american economy, nothing else. In the end it pollutes just as much as gasoline. Look up some real research on it, not the advertising for it. The real research shows that it isnt that great of an alternative. sorry i dont have the time right now to go into a more indepth explanation or provide links(i forgot to bookmark them).
