"I drive a '79 Olds Cutlass and engines in older cars like mine aren't designed to burn ethanol."

That car would have NO problem with E10.
In our family, we had 74 Dart, 76 Valiant, 74 Mercury, 76 Mercury, and 74 Chevrolet, ALL had no problem with E10.

ə i use it here because it is cheapest (by 13¢), but in areas that charge the same or more for it and have no-alcohol gasoline, i will use that as it is more efficient. ə

I drive a diesel, so no ethanol worry for me.

Ethanol free midgrade is widely available here, but I can't imagine people would willingly use it. Regular's about $3.239 if you shop around but the cheapest E-free is $4 a gallon.

Last time I checked, every grade of fuel has a mix of ethanol (gasoline grades), and at almost every station in the country.

Yes, I have no choice, cuz the government mandated it.

My answer refers to the fuel for my 1994 Class B RV, with a 318ci Dodge engine. Those older engines weren't designed to run on ethanol fuel, so there's not enough BTUs in regular ethanol-blend gas. When I use ethanol-free premium gas, I get better performance. I get better mileage too, so it's a positive tradeoff.

Ethanol free gasoline costs about 30 to 40 cents per gallon more and worth every penny.

I'd like to know more about why I should or shouldn't. I think there are only a couple stations around that even sell gas without it. Why is it added anyway?
