I ran tests in my old Pont Grand Am, E85 vs reg 87 octane gas. I have the data, but not immediately available. It was not 30% reduction in economy. Was closer to 10%.
You are buying into the ethanol basher's bogus info my friend.
And yes I do choose to support a fuel that is grown in the state where I live. I would expect that it will be further refined in the future to be an even better option. I also like propane, ok option for mowers (not sure I really want to lug tanks around). Am excitied to see what other options become available in coming years, lets hope sooner rather than later.
