Good to see no MA, CT, or RI on that map lol.
Why is it no surprise to me that MA doesn't have/allow any

Tomorrow is my car's build date birthday! And also 3 month-a-versary of owning this car!

I've driven this vehicle over 11,000 km and used 21 tanks of fuel, over 800 L, of both regular (Shell 87 E10) and premium (Shell 91 E0).

I'm getting about 3 MPG more (combined mileage of 32.30 vs 29.61) with premium versus regular. All while using my Focus a little bit more in the city with premium (~35% of the time vs ~30% on regular).

Premium costs about 13% more, so the gain in MPG isn't equal to the extra amount I pay... But in the end, I think it's worth it.

I'm visiting my friend in the Middle of Nowhere, WI this week... you know what that means? Ethanol-free gasoline! (I have the choice of 87 or 91... 87 is so much cheaper, though...)

I did the 91, but ouch - it was $4.389 per gallon as opposed to $3.899 for the 87 E0 ($3.789 for E10 87).

I picked up 5 extra gallons of the E0 87, though - for my ATV, lawn mower, weed whacker, snow blower, etc.
