Hey, I'm in Albion, NE. I pretty much only use 89. Haven't gotten up the nuts to try the 93 yet. Seems like it'd add up to quite a bit of money to just test it, I drive to Lincoln all the time though, so I use gas like it's goin outta style...

Since I live in the Midwest and my wife works for a farm advocate group I put only 89 Ethanol in all of my vehicles. Unfortunately I know it leads to a little less MPG but I feel good about myself when I go to bed.

I see you have a 1989 truck. Ethanol is very hard on all it touches. If you cant get gas without it you need a new truck. Also we the people are paying for it to damage your truck. And its not just a little less MPG. Oh and my 1976 boat with twin 318 , Needs fuel tanks. lines, 3500.00 ... Will you ask your wife WTF
Im very sorry i tried to stop myself....

Something to seriously look into. I've only had to fill her twice so no harm, no foul yet.

I started using 87 and have switched to 89. Albeit that I only have 2000km on the truck.
