(I'm sure the ethanol industry argues that the cost of my gas is also cheaper than gas without any ethanol, so I'm not at any disadvantage.)

The best MPGs I've gotten on a road trip is 37, so I'm curious if those of you getting 40+ are using gas without any ethanol.
0.05/gallon savings actually costs more in the end (at the pump, and subsidiaries)
