Non-Ethanol gasoline....

Have any of you run this in your car and noticed a significant difference in gas mileage, vs Ethanol (E-10) gasoline?

I ask this because out here it's kind of hard to find gas without ethanol, but I did find some for my lawnmower and snowblower and decided to just fill the Jeep with it too. Preliminary indications from my car's computer are that I'm getting about 10%-20% better gas mileage. It's still only a small sample size (about a half tank so far), but if it is true, it's definitely is worth the extra 0.20-0.30 per gallon.

In Florida, non-ethanol is probably more common because of all the marine engines and you're not close to big ethanol production.

never noticed a difference but tended to use by region.

I know the farm state elected officials freak the f out if there is any suggestion of a change to the subsidy.

Its a wonder I don't have mouth cancer. My buddy and I traveled as hs seniors to the Smoky mts siphoning our way (even though gas was about 30-40 cents a gallon. We got busted sleeping in the car in Tennessee and when the cop found our 3 foot section of garden hose, he said, "look what I found...an Arkansas credit card." We figured in Arkansas they call it a Tennessee credit card.

Yeah, easy to find here. Although I think the price difference is more here.

Always bought it for my outboard and lawn equipment but never tried it in my car. Might need to give it a try.

We called it a Georgia or Alabama credit card.

Yes, it's better. I know a couple people who seek out and only use ethanol free gas. And obviously swear it's far better for your vehicle.

Ethanol free around here is the same price as premium. Like a 70 cent per gallon up charge for 87 octane.

When I finally get my '66 thunderbird, I might run the ethanol-free in it, since that's what it was made for.
I have an app (pure gas) that shows all the stations with ethanol-free gas.

For purely the fuel savings reason, that wouldn't be worth it.
