he is right though. ethanol is terrible for combustion compared to the carbon based gasoline. i was getting 17 before my transmission blew out and stopped shifting into overdrive. didn't realize that it made that much of a difference, overdrive that is. I mean i guess cause i drive highway for 60 miles a day...where it didn't shift out of 4th it was constantly at 2500 rpm's instead of 1k. before i took it to the shop for a trans rebuild i was getting 13mpg! that's 4 less!

Back to what i was saying earlier.... lol honestly look at getting an accell coil. another thing is make sure that your plugs are the right kind (not platnum make sure that the plugs are copper and gapped right) also i'd go with a set of ..i think it's mm ....plug wires and i'd look into getting a new cap and rotor. but the creme de le creme of gas mileage and power is the superchips flashpaq.

that is in my opinion though, talking about those mods.
