...Lets see...I get about 20mpg average...And I drive a whooollleee lot. I've had the car almost a year, got it brand new, and its got 32k on it.
So. About 3k mi a month. I usually get about 300mi per tank. So every month, about 10 tanks of gas. I drive ALOT.
So. 10 tanks...15gal tanks...150gals/month. Gas is about 2.60/gal here. So, $390/month on gas.
Using 95% E85(142gal/month), the price drops to $340/month(assuming a price equal to regular unleaded gas). Averaging out to an overall savings of $600/year. That's 6 fuel pumps.
not to mention better performance
