ok, I completed the study today. I drove 262 miles and filled up with 15.6 gallons today. My mpg comes up to 16.7 mpg while using the 10% ethanol gas versus the 18 mpg with 100% gas. Id like to repeat the study to validate it, but this pretty much matches my results when I did it using my Dakota.

At a cost of approximately an extra 10 cents per gallon for the 100% gas versus the 10% ethanol gas, it seems like a good investment to continue using the 100% gas because of the extra miles I'm able to get from each tank. Is it earth shattering....nope, but hopefully it helps others make choices that help them.
