1) Buy 91 ethanol free fuel and run the 91 SC tune. Get this fuel when I can, and when I can't then run regular 93 octane(most stations don't have 91 here, they have 93).

2) Keep running the 93 SC tune and don't use the 91 ethanol free fuel.

3) Keep running the 93 SC tune and try the 91 ethanol free fuel and see if I might get away with it(doubtful).

93 right now is about $4.30/gal. The 91 ethanol free is about $4.20/gal.

Holy Cow!!!! $4.30 a gallon?!!! I guess I'll stop griping about $3.60 to $3.69 a gallon.
