Question Rec 90 octane (recreational 90)

Rec 90 octane (recreational 90), mainly used for boats and small gas engines, chainsaws etc....

I am to believe that is doesn’t get taxed the same as regular gas (87, 89, 93). So there for one its not supposed to used for daily driving, but only for boats and small motors. I pumped some the other day for my chainsaw and it looked "straw" color yellow/brown like regular gas. I had heard it was dyed another color so if you ever went in for an inspection or something they could tell you have been using it.

I want to use non-ethanol gas, this is 90 octane and no ethanol, so what is the deal on using this gas? It does cost a few cents more than 89 which I use anyway, but without the ethanol the MPG will improve, so it will be worth it. Or at least mix it with 89 for a little bit of a boost.

Don't see it much around here, not sure what penalties are but if I put Farm diesel -also no tax and dyed - in a highway vehicle I'm subject to fines up to $1000 per use.

Same as stated above. In my neck of the woods we have farm gas and regular gas. The farm gas has no tax, which saves a dollar a gallon in Ok, but is dyed. If caught, they fine you and if you a farmer, yank your excemption status...

Pardon my ignorance, but what type of mpg improvement can one expect from running higher octane fuels. We have a station in my neck of the woods that sells ONLY high octane but at a premium price (see link below). Just curious as to whether the extra cost of fuel justifies the mileage savings...assuming I keep my heavy right foot off the pedal of course.

By the way, you can find stations like this in your area here --> http://www.buyrealgas.com/

I was more or less wanting non-ethanol gas, ever since this 10% ethanol has been added to our gas. Any gas driven engine has seen a decrease in MPG and if you read around E85 burns cleaner which is great for the world, but it takes more fill ups to go the distance you would be able to go on regular non ethanol gas. E85 doesn’t not pack the same punch as regular gas without it.

Since our trucks recommend 89 oct, and it is 90 oct I figure it’s the same in that sense.
I know in my Dakota prior to my Ram I lost 15-20 miles to a tank of gas when they added the ethanol.
