Wow.. I just looked it up, Texas has 83 total. Oklahoma has 523 stations, Arkansas 300. I guess I take for granted how easy it is to find for me. I wouldn't put anything else in my boat.

It really does make a huge difference if you can find it, I can get an extra MPG out of the real gas alone. It's nothing to see 20-21 mpg cruising at 70. On 87 corn juice I average around 18.5

Towing.. well.. it's sucks. It really doesn't matter what you tow, don't expect more than 13, 14 max.

I averaged 10 mpg pulling a 2k lb tractor 400 miles, that was the worst it's been. 21' Skeeter tends to put me around 12-13 mpg.

mfifield01 is on a distinguished road

I was getting around 13 mpg running 89 octane last summer towing my boat. My boat is a 21' Nautique (about 4500lbs including the trailer). When we had real gas, I noticed about 1+ mpg better in my old Ram.
