My discussion goal is this.....  does running no ethanol result in better mileage versus running an ethanol blend.  It is measurable in the real world with these cars?  Either it is huge or miniscule in comparison to regular ICE cars.

 

Yes.  Most of those who have had the opportunity to make a fair comparison see the same 3-4% that all ICE engine users see.

 

Just by the nature of "self testing", some see no change and some see a HUGE change.......and scientifically those are thrown out and the 60% or so in the middle represents "good" data.

That lines up pretty good with the results seen in non-hybrid testing.

 

If you are presently getting 60 MPG with E10, you could reasonably expect to see about a 2.4 MPG increase with E0.

Some would be elated with that result.  

I don't think it is worth the trouble or additional cost.

And it is within the expected margin of error for a non-controlled end  user tests.

 

Each owner should do whatever makes him happy and not berate other owners who come to a different conclusion........unless they ask, of course.  :)

E10 is really the only choice we have up here in the puget sound area. There is one station near me that sells 100% gas but it's only 89 octane and higher, cost 30 cents more a gallon easy... Other ethanol free gas is fleet only. I miss OK because you could get 100% gas almost anywhere and it was only 10 cents more a gallon.
