These results are from a stock 2005 Dodge Ram with 4.7L Magnum. Test was also done on three other vehicles with similar results but I didnt want to copy and paste a bunch of the same stuff(I can if you want). Final conclusion was less BTU's per horsepower are needed with higher ethanol but more fuel was burned droping MPG. This was a HP and MPG study.
