So I was going to the Hess station that I normal ever-so-often and saw a tag on the pumps:
I know the image is real shitty, but the white tag reads: "CONTAINS 10% ETHANOL." This is the first time I've seen that tag, meaning it was never there before.
I was under the impression that in order to use Ethanol (E85, right?) you needed a converter or something. Though it is only at 10%, does it have any effect? Isn't it true that using ethanol, though cheaper to produce, doesn't create better MPG? And being cheaper to produce and buy for stations, aren't they price gouging by keeping the price the same? I paid $3.09/gal and other stations along the same route were in the same range, some at $3.05 and others a little more.
So educate me people.
