The Ethanol label popped up about 2-3 years ago. I noticed it then ... and wondered as well. Yes it does help the newer vehicles ... because I use to get like 285 - 300 Miles per tank ... I now barely get 255 - 265 miles per tank fill. (This is on normal none aggressive driving)

well i "heard" about it some years back but thought i was on the coasts at the time. then i forgot about it. but the other day i was looking at the unit that you choose the gas and off to the side it said in small letters," contains ethanol" i could have been there earlier but i never noticed it until then.
ohwell thanks for the replies.
