Tank #15

Since we are in the summer months, you'd think that the ethanol content of E85 would be higher.  But I have not seen evidence of that, no CEL's.

I've decided to increase my ethanol content a bit, going with 4 gallons of E85 instead of 3.5.  In the winter, this gave me an occasional CEL, towards the end of the tank and which would clear itself.  We'll see.

Gallons E85: 4.000 @ $1.949/ gal

Gallons 87 octane: 8.821 @ 2.249 / gal

Ethanol content of tank: 27.2%

Octane of tank: 90.7

Savings per tank vs. premium at $2.749/ gal: $7.6105
