Here in Texas all regular consumer outlets are now E10 with a smattering of E15 & E85.
bingo, you're a thinker! What kills me is that the gasoline has been diluted by 10-15% where is the corresponding 10-15% reduction in price? So not only do you get a worse mileage, you pay a premium for it!

oh thats right, nothing to see here.

it sucks, not much we can do about it, when it comes to something necessary like this they'll always find a way to dig deeper into your pockets.

it's crazy to see that spread of non ethanol gas, most of it is in the south east, still a good spread all along the east coast

Where do you live?
Location matters, some people are fortunate to live within a range of different types of gas
