Fuel savings/ ethanol/ platinum 22

Beware of the Platinum 22 fuel saving device.. They offer no hard evidence that it actually works.. 22% of fuel not burned in stock engines is just not true.. Modern engines are nearer to 98% efficiency. My last trip out west? 16.5 mpg non ethanol states,,, 13.5 mpg in ethanol states.. My question.. Do the higher octane blends still have a high % of ethanol? Here in Pa I stay away from ethanol, and get 17mpg going back and forth to work @ average speed of 55 mph on country roads... With a lifted rubi , on 33s it doesn't get any better!!
