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!
But considering an average of around 30mpg, those extra miles would cost 88.00 instead of 21 (3.70/gallon average).
For me it is a no brainer, unless I'm out of town, i know where to get ethanol free gas, and i fill up there everytime as it is on my normal commute. If I'm out of town, I'm not searching for it
