Some stats on first tank

Gallons of E85: 5.575
Cost/ gallon E85: $3.049

The rest of the tank was 93 octane Amoco Ultimate

Octane/ tank: 95.378
Ethanol/ tank: 30.396%

Because I just topped off the tank, I don't have a good feel for what I paid for the 93 octane gas. However, at the time I filled up with E85, premium gas was $3.54 a gallon.

The rough cost savings of just the E85 fuel was 50 cents a gallon times 5.575 gallons, which works out to be $2.79 a tank.

I will update this with the mileage/ tank at the time of the next fillup. Mileage so far is 22.6 mpg.
