    Checking the fill-up receipt from this morning:
    Gallons: 24.64
    Blend: 89
    Price: $2.689
    Total: 66.26

    I can run the really bad stuff (85% ethanol) if I want to run to Kroger, but I generally like to treat my engine and fuel system nicely, and give it the decent stuff once in a while. My brother-in-law mechanic said it reduces carbon build-up to run a higher octane once in a while. Good for injectors and pistons.
    He also recommends an "Italian tune-up" once in while too.
    Take it out for a spin, hammer down on the gas, crank those RPMs and blow the crud out.
    Engines are designed to push 6-8K RPMs easily, yet with modern driving, rarely ever do. It's actually good for them every now and then. Mine will push 10K without breaking a sweat, so I have fun once in while. (there is no PRM "red zone" on the dash of a 5.0 Coyote )

    Right you are @Kauboy !

    HOWEVER...you done gone and done it! Opened up the can of ethanol worms... I. HATE. ETHANOL.

    Ethanol makes no sense to me. Take good food and good fuel and burn the good fuel to turn the good food into bad fuel. Not to mention grossly over-pay the farmers with my tax dollars to utilize their assets to grow the food in the first place

    Another example of government over reach and regulations gone wild.

    Thanks Kauboy (and I was having a good day dang it!)

    Slip, who says the food they use is "good"? Here in Wisconsin they have a way of bleeding off the ethanol and feeding the corn back to the cattle. Not one domestic tortilla's life is taken in the midst of this debauchery.

    Besides, I'll eat creamed corn only about twice per year, and because The Corn Fest is held in my burg, I usually avoid the entire nightmare.

    McDaniels is in the livestock biz to supplement all that squeezed corn off cast - there's mountains & mountains of it - same same with veggie oil production ...

    I paid $4.59 a gallon last week in San Jose. In Tucson, it is around $2.80 right now.

    Ethanol is meant to be likker, not gas!!! That's why God made it and that's the way it is, period.

    We are paying 265-ish per gallon here in Florida.
    Not to worry --- we will be paying 3.00 a gallon by summer
    Summer blend according to the oil barons, but it is all about profit!!

    I filled up my daily driver and it was $4.39 (premium). Ridiculous.
