Crown Vic tank #13

E85 was $1.73 a gallon today.  87 octane gas was $2.03 and premium was $2.53.


I was at
 108979 miles, last tank was at 108726 miles, for 253 miles on this tank.  I filled up with 17.095 gallons, for 14.799 miles per gallon.  OUCH!  It's been hot, been driving with the a/c on a lot.

I saved $13.68 on this tank by using E85 vs. premium, not considering the mileage penalty.

I changed the oil last weekend, everything seemed to be in good order.

Acura update

The Acura is sitting at 165k miles, more than 10k miles running on E30 to E40, with no issues.

My son is learning to drive and is mostly driving it.  For simplicity's sake, he has been filling up with 87 octane, not mixing E85 in like I was.

So, from now on, most if not all updates will be for the Crown Vic, just documenting mileage with E85 and gas.

Crown Vic tank #11

I saved $13.57 on this tank by using E85 vs. premium, not considering the mileage penalty.

Crown Vic tank #10

Remember, the last tank was gas, not E85.

E85 was $1.99 today.  87 octane gas was $2.19 and premium was $2.69.


I was at 108185 miles, last tank was at 107863 miles, for 322 miles on this tank.  I filled up with 16.343 gallons, for 19.7 miles per gallon, on GAS, not E85.


So I lose about 3 to 3.5 mpg when using E85 vs. gas.

I saved $11.44 by using E85 vs. premium, not considering the mileage penalty.

Crown Vic tank #9

Unfortunately, both E85 pumps were occupied this morning, and I had to fill up with straight gas.  On the positive side, now I can see what my mileage on gasoline (E10) is.

I was at 107863, last tank was at 107580, for 283 miles on the tank.  I filled up with 17.293 gallons, for 16.37 mpg.

E85 cost 2.05 per gallon, E10 gas cost 2.25 per gallon, and premium cost 2.75 per gallon.
