I was wonder what is the long term effects of using oil in the fuel system. Maybe being such a dilution the car won't notice and will just burn away.

probably not as bad as those who constantly burn thru a quart of oil every 1000 miles

Plus, TC-W3 is designed for complete combustion, where motor oil is not.

Entire trip average 33mpg @ 72mph average. A/c on for 300+miles. 1/2 tank of 87e10, at this point I don't think I will stop using it.

Fill today was over 400miles, forgot actual number, 12.1gal, 33.6mpg! 20% was in/around downtown Minneapolis and surrounding area, parking ramps slow traffic etcetc.

Actually my trip odometer I had set to compare to gps mileage to figure out odometer error on my new tires was 37mpg, 5% city the rest interstate at 72mph

Omg, I havnt been much above 1,300 ft with the scoobie. 5200 ft zaps what N/A power it has. Dang I'd go crazy if I lived here with this car. I'd have to have a WRX at least to offset elevation. Maybe I see more what some guys say about such a slow acceleration.

Our last fills have been worse, but it has also been 30+mph winds here for most of the week, so it is yard to come to a real conclusion off this tank

Currently on my 3rd tank of fuel trying this out. Not noticing any change in average MPG's but it does seem to be driving smoother. Placebo Effect?

On my car(CVT), I get my best mileage at a constant 65mph on the highway, keep the RPM's under 3000 on acceleration, and the tires filled 38psi front, 36psi rear.

No. You'd get better mpg if you went 55 or slower. I get 42 when I go 55.
