I noticed the same thing. Non-ethanol gas gives better gas mileage for sure. I think they are just ripping us off more. I remember reading Henry Ford used ethanol gas back in the 20's. Hmmm wonder why they stopped using it? Been there done that and moved to something that lasted.
I just dont see how all these new cars with such light material and thin metal and we still only get 15-19 mpg's. Heck we had better built cars in the 80's (thicker metal) and still got that? Where is all this progress?
