With government E85 funding cut, I would actually think that they would stop

E85 is about $8/gallon cheaper than the race gas that it has equal performance to.

Lol. Not a real comparison but I think doing cost comparisons to pump gas is silly. It offers tons more performance for very little extra cost. But if you must compare that, I got about 20MPG on pump. So my mileage is down by about 25%. E85 is still about $0.60-0.80 cheaper than Premium near me so the cost difference is small, but E85 is a bit more per mile.

I have no idea and I honestly never look. If had to guess I bet Premium is $3.8X and E85 is $3.2X. That could be way off though.

Oh wow. That is expensive. Maybe I'm way off. I think pump gas is still under $4 here but I could be wrong. But the actual prices really don't matter as much as the % difference.

I agree, in the end its irrelevant , e85 has the best " bang" for the buck overall. My company pays my gas so that helps a lot. Now on to another matter, I'm looking into either a blotch 18g or an AMR cxr550 , any qualms with ure 20g?

Filled up the explorer last night @ $3.79. I only know this because the wife said something about gas prices. Normally I don't care.

Looking at the gas tracking App I have.... here is what you and I have been paying at the Industrial BLVD holiday. With my $0.06 off coupon I use everytime


E85
3.139 (This week)
3.199
3.149
2.989
3.039
3.139
2.969
2.899 (Feb 20th)


I use the app for MPH and tracking the engine use more than prices. LOL

I like the 20G XTR a lot. It's a bit bigger than a TD06 20G, but still spools nicely. Blouch has great service too. I bought mine used, but they are sill great about answering email and phone questions. I don't have any experience with the AMR though.

Holiday Gas Stations are local. If you go to their website you can sign up for email newsletters and coupons.

http://www.holidaystationstores.com/


Every month or two they send out a $0.06 off coupon. I shrink them down and fit a few on the page (two columns). Then cut them out and toss them in the car. I have used one for every gas purchase for the past few months.

Just like the other picture threads. Every few dozen pages everyone posts about their gas prices and gas mileage. I really don't care. I'm not going to move and it's not going to make me feel better/worse knowing what your gas prices are.

Same with the "Is E85 worth the money" debates that always pop up. If you have to ask, you need to do more research. First, it's a simple calculation and second, even if it cost double what pump gas cost it would still be completely worth it compared to race gas.

Enough of this. No more fuel price comments. Lol.
