As of right now, E10 is priced at about $2.20 per gallon. E-85 would need to be priced at $1.90 for the cost per mile driven to be the same. Right now, E-85 is priced at $1.70, so it is saving me a little bit of money per mile driven.

The real bang for the buck is the blender pump, where I can by multiple blends: E20, E30, E40, and E85. The E20 is priced at $2.00 per gallon and gives me the same mileage as E10. I do not have near enough data to quote cost per mile on the blender pump blends, but if you are curious, I have a nice pivot chart on my Silverado burning E85, E10, Premium, and Regular without Ethanol. I break down cost per mile.

The van switches between fuels so much I don't track it, but since I drive the Silverado full time and drive by an E85 pump on my way to and from work every day, I track it closely.

They don't sell it here or at least I've never seen it anywhere. Not even up in Memphis.

You won't keep the mileage, but you'll keep the power.

Your engine and fuel system will stay very clean. The mileage will drop a couple MPG. 23 seems high for city mileage. Is that what the computer says?

$0.60 is a very good price spread. The break even on my truck and van is a $0.30 spread.
Nope, I never trust those computers for actually figuring the mileage properly. Always use the miles driven/gallons in (fill every time) method.

On my second tank of E-85 and so far there is a drop in the mileage. Haven't figured it out totally yet as I'd like to have three full tanks of use for the test.

Currently at 1200 mi. May take a while to finish the test since I have the DGC in storage right now. Too nice weather wise around here to not be driving the convertible, which gets 24-25 mpg in the city.
