No not really. I've been driving it somewhat conservatively as always with no jackrabbit starts. I have accelerated briskly a few times to get on the freeway just to see how good I can get up to speed but no WOT.

I know the gas has something to do with it but it's just the usual 10% blend like everywhere.

Not sure for your area, but here in Central NY, we have gas stations that sell gasoline with no ethanol....my car runs great and I also get it for my lawn care toys...

 

Non-ethanol gas finder, selected for WA area....

In GA you can only find pure gasoline at or near Marinas.

The real gas around here in WA is about at least a buck more a gallon than the corn gas. I have to wonder if the real gas might get a bit stale at those prices.

Also I wonder if one fuel outlet has more alcohol than another despite they post 10% on their pumps.

That sucks man....We have "pure gas" options at my Fastrac if you use premium...in neighboring Camden NY, their new Fastrac also has "pure gas" in the 87 octane and it is 25 cents more per gallon.

I'd gladly pay just 25 cents more for real gas because that would really make up for it mileage wise. I used to average better mileage from a pick up that had a 350 in it back when you could get real gas where I live.

I got 18.25 mpgs yesterday on my last fill up. I drove it a bit harder this time. Maybe this is the way to drive these cars.
It also turned 200K yesterday. It runs and drives like a car with only 50K.
