Ethanol in gas = poor gas mileage. Due to the poorer burn qualities of Ethanol gas I would bet it actually adds to the air pollution since you have to burn more fuel to go the same distance. I avoid Ethanol in gas whenever possible
Curious, do other states sell gas with more than 10%? Here in Florida every gas station has a sign up saying "Contains 10% Ethanol or less"

My '09 QC Hemi, stock other than KN filter in factory intake, factory (original) 20" wheels n tires, 3:55 final ratio City 14-16, Hiway 19-21 (less than 74 mph) MDS is on, Tow 30' TT @ 5600 lbs 8. I am hoping a diesel will get me better mpg when towing and a 2500 to handle a bigger trailer.

Hey BigTJohn; have you ever considered replacing your 20" wheels and tires for 17" and reflashing the speedo for tire size change? The 3.55 I truly believe works much better towing with 30-31" diameter size tires rather than the optional 33", 20" wheels bud.
