I have to run Premium in my Cadillac and my Impala. The one thing I love is If you look hard enough 93 octane will be only ten cents a gallon over the regualr gas. no matter what the price of gas is, it is going to cost you $2.00 on a 20 gallon tank of gas. no big deal in my opinion. I get people all the time when gas prices are up and can't believe that I still put premium in the cars. but the price of gas makes no difference to me whether I am going to run premium or not. Just how much useless driving I am going to do. I run premium in everything as in this state premium doesn't have ethanol and I refuse to put ethanol in my truck as it wrecks gas mileage. I get a steady 18 MPG and I get about 15-16 with 87 with ten percent ethanol. I have a buddy that has a taurus with the e-85 motor. He ran it a few times with e-85 and only got 11 mpg. It reqires more ethanol to get the same energy than it does straight gasoline. he gets 30 with regular gasoline. So unless the government subsidized price is 1/3 the price of regualar it is a useless thing to have. He bought it when gas went up to 1.99 in 01 and thought it was the end of the world.
