Thats nice, but I think the fast as you can legally drive in America is 85 on certain roads in TX during the day.

Hows the mpg? Til the heat went over 95 I was averaging 43 mpg, now its down to 37.

Here it's crap, the ethanol content is all over the map. Can't even get a handle on it they change the % so much.

I can say the same for octane ratings as I used a higher one in my insight too. Sams clubs high octane wasnt always high. I settled with BP for being dead on their rated octane and mapco/east coast being a second.

Just think some cars actually have a higher output when a higher ethanol fuel is used. No, my versa doesnt like it either.

That will be true until you run into either a software limit or the injectors hit flow limits. Pretty quick if the cars are not flex ones.

And since the ethanol content varies of course the octane rating will too.
