Smile hey guys!! it is miles per dollar that is important

math is not really my thing ...BUT ..please check my figurin' ... if i buy 10 gallons of E85 @ 2.50 per, an put in 1 diesel for 3.10 the cost per gallon is 2.55 ..and i get 20 mpg so it costs 12.75 cents per mile to drive ....
on "regular" gas i get 17 mpg at $3.10 so i get a cost of 18.23 cents per mile......or 5 cents per mile MORE COST !!
and FYI is correct that cars won't run on diesel... only thing is .. my uncle figured a way to run a gasoline engine in his automobile on straight diesel some 65 years ago!!
(his method turned the diesel into VAPOR before it went into the engine)
