After monitoring over a span of 6 tanksfull, I have observed that the dash indicator mpg is much more accurate when burning pure gas than when burning E10. When burning E10, the actual mpg is typically 5 mpg less than the dash indicated mpg. Probably has to do with the lower energy content of E10, but I'll leave it to the scientist/engineers to analyze the reasons why this is the case. But that is what I have observed.
