What I'm saying is: "Don't blow smoke up my ***." Miniscule (technical) losses are still losses, especially when you're marketing them as Tremendous Gains! Don't tell me I'm going to save money at the pump when I'll be visiting the pump more often.So what your saying is "I'm an engineer. I only look at things at a miniscule technical level that will make absolutely no difference whatsoever in the real world, just on paper."
Ok. Got it.
I'd rather sit on the couch picking lint out of my belly button for free than be breaking my back for the same price.
He says that his truck is getting the same fuel economy on E15. The physics says otherwise.
He says that the pinging on 88 is less than 87, well no ****, but if you're STILL pinging, you should be using 89 or 90 until the pinging stops.
I wouldn't exactly swear by a fuel that is slowly tearing up my pistons and cylinder walls.
...and while I think Ethanol is a decent, clean, and (somewhat) renewable fuel, it's not that great in a gasoline engine. Flex Fuel owners can tell you that E85 doesn't always justify the price. Most owners report about 15-25% less fuel economy on E85, so the price of E85 better damn well be discounted steep enough to justify the yearly cost, as well as the cost of your time. If I have to go to the gas station 25% more often, that's a hidden cost, because time = money.
