Huh... 10% ethanol kills 10% of your mileage. So we are getting 90% of our mileage out of a US gallon of gas. Leave it to the government and the oil company lobby to come up with this scam.

Also, do any of you notice gas mileage drastically dropping during the colder winter months?? I hear that there are additives added during the winter that are suppposed to allow the fuel to burn off better (less pollution) of course I seem to get 3 mpg a gallon less during the winter so that TOO is hogwash and just a scam to sell you more gas.
