Thumbs up Summer Blend

Summer blend must be back in my area. My last fill up in the '88 Escort came in at 43.89 mpg, up from 39.10 mpg from the previous fill. This tank did have more longer trips on it, but I don't think that alone made that much difference. I think we need to get underground storage tanks installed and fill them in the fall with enough gas to last us through the winter.

Re: Summer Blend

what's the difference between the two blends? I mean, sure, I'd like to have a tank and store enough summer blend up for the winter months too, but there's obviously a reason why there is a winter blend. Does the summer blend run like crap in the winter? Why not just sell it all year?
