- Feb 3, 2012I have found a local station that sells ethanol free gas. There was a huge difference in my 07. I went from an average of 43-47 to 52-56. I drive the same route everyday and it is around 85 miles round trip, 50 of which is 65 MPH interstate.

Primary ingredients for corn is diesel and petroleum based fertilizer. Ethanol is not renewable energy unless it is produced without natural gas, diesel, or fertilizer.
