lets see, av-gas 135 octane airplane fuel is 7.99 a gallon. and 110 sunoco is like 5.50 I think. Regular 87 is 2.14 course, I only buy 93 and up. down the road in SC, spinx sells 95 octane for 1.83. Damn SC gas tax is cheaper. I think the 95 is actually the same price as regular down there. Its funny, I don't know why though

The problem that people will run into with running E85 is that it takes 17-20% MORE fuel to equzte to the same amount of power. And you cannot mix E85 and regular street gas, since the fuel needs are so much greater on a flex fuel vehicle, your car would run very badly and because the ECU would not be able to adjust for the amount of regular fuel is mixed into the E85, and you would end up running lean on a pump gas tune, or rich on a E85 tune
