Here in MN, we don't have the option of buying ethanol-free gas for our daily drivers...only for classic cars, boats, small engines, etc. can we buy non-ethanol and, it's 91 octane AND approx. $.50/gal more. Been this way for 20 yrs. But, when MN first mandated use of ethanol, I would often run the short distance across state line into WI and fill up with their non-ethanol. I can tell you for certain, my cars would easily get 10-15% better gas mileage on the non-ethanol. Aside from that, I haven't had any performance issues with any of my cars over the years that I can attribute to ethanol.
