I believe it's around 20 cents Speed. I think I can handle that appx. $4 per fill-up.

Re: Worst MPG Contest!

If nonEgas was priced like that around here, I would still be running it.

Is your station in Smyrna on Enon Springs road. If it is I pass it once a week to go to Walmart.

I wonder why more stations do not offer the non ethanol gas. Is it because they feel the price difference would keep it from selling.

Re: Worst MPG Contest!

I thought the high price of corn would drive fuel prices up. If that is true, it strikes me that pure gas should be cheaper than Egas.

Re: Worst MPG Contest!

I'm getting 12.4 around town. Just filled up today, 81.2 miles, 6.581 gal @ $3.18. I'm leaving on a 1000 mile interstate trip from Louisville to S Fl on Sunday. I'll post what my highway mpg is. I've seen 20 but usually get 18-19 highway.

I think government subsidies has a lot to do with e-gas price too.

Today in Smyrna, TN the difference was 14 cents. 3.29 vs 3.15. Is non ethanol gas not legal to sell in some state?
