Hello all. I've been away from the site for awhile as it's been a very busy year so far.
I went back several months in this thread looking for this subject as I've been away a while and I didn't see anything on it. If this topic has been beaten to death my apologies.
I have been experimenting with something that's been more prevalent in my area the last year or so - non-ethanol gas.
More and more stations around the frozen north have been offering it and it seems to perform much better that the 10% corn gas stuff we've been forced to use. My gas mileage has improved considerably in all our vehicles and all appear to accelerate and perform better. My 97 Harley Fatboy (Evo) has gone from 45 mpg to 55 mpg. The CLA has gone from 42 mpg on a southbound trip to 48 mpg. My wife's GLC300 went from 23 mpg to 26 mpg day to day driving. I use my Tacoma to haul a Wells Cargo 12' bow front, enclosed trailer. I can now go to the coast of Maine (about a 2-1/2 to 3 hour drive) towing 2,900 lbs out & 900 lbs (the trailer weight) back on a single tank of gas. It's all local roads no interstate at all. I used to have to fill up on my return trip somewhere along the way.
It's only available in 91 Octane around here. Valero, Sunoco, BP and a local chain in VT & NY called Stewarts offer it. A few mom & pops also offer it as well.
The performance appears to be awesome in all my vehicles. I'll put in a detergent gas like Mobile 93 every 4 to 5 fill ups just in case some of the non-ethanols are not a detergent gas. The difficult thing was finding non-ethanol stations until I found the Pure Gas App. It works pretty well. It locates your phone and will give you the closest station to your current location with GPS directions. If you find a non-ethanol station that's not listed you can add it.
Thanks for confirming the benefits of corn free.
Just put some Techron superduper additive to keep things clean.
With the use of 10% junk the past 20k miles I am afraid to video my chambers when I change plugs ... might have varnish everywhere ...
100% gas gives a lot more punch per spark than 90% stuff so am not surprised about your results.
Good to “see” you
Nice to be seen!
Will check out the Techron additives.
