I do however get better mpg with real gas and not the crap with 10% ethanol. It doesn't to seem to be 10% better like previous cars, but still 1.5mpg and only cost an extra 0.60 per fill so definitely worth it
1.5mpg will only get you 21 miles farther (based on 14 gallons) for that extra 0.60.......so in a year (based on 15k) you'll have filled up 36 times gained of total of 714 miles for a total of 15,714, and at the cost of $21.60 (based on 30mpg combined). Considering that, I will stay focused on using quality BRAND fuels, rather than ethanol free.

714 miles spread out over a year isn't enough for me to go out of my way to look for ethanol free gas, especially when it's costing more at the pump every time!
