As most of you know, I drive a Geo Metro. Back in Indiana I was averaging 58 miles to the gallon. But here its worse. I am getting 31.5 miles to the gallon. The state legislators decided to make it a law that 10% ethanol will be put into all gas here.
I have a 3 cycle engine as you can see above. Michael said that I might have gotten less since it was storming on the way to my dads house. He might be right, but gezzz that is a huge loss.
Michael said that his mileage went down too, he was getting 25 mpg and is now getting 18. Kevin said that he has noticed a loss too. He was getting 35 mpg and is now getting 25 mpg.
I believe that its the combination of both, the gas and the weather. The thing about the ethanol is, it cost the same ($2.77 a gallon) as the gas without it. I think that the law needs to be changed. To allow us Americans to have a choice if we want the ethanol or not.
