ever since they put ethanol in the gas, my gas milage is down.
before, I was getting 46.9 to 52
now it's 40 to 48.

Could be, maybe there's something wrong with your car (like dirty fuel injectors) that might be causing it as well. I haven't noticed a change with my mileage yet.

I've noticed this too. I was talking with one of the heads of the auto school at mass bay ashland, he says ethanol is a great hype that is doing little to nothing to help consumers.

my injector were just checked like 2 weeked ago.

I've been complaining to a couple people and one other person's down about 10%. he's got a laptop hooked up to his car.

I noticed that I don't have as much power and have to have the pedal down farther to get the same speed. also gas jumped up to $2.99/gallon.

anothe guy's gas milage went up too.

since i got my new transmission i went from 280miles on a 16gal tank, to 350miles.

ethanol probably has a higher combustion rate than gasoline, which is a great thing to introduce when your gas costs over $3.00

"oh but we're trying to save the planet"
"fuck you! we're paying an extra $30 a week to save the planet! you're not doing shit!"

although gas mileage can be affected by any little thing, including tire pressure

This is true. I baby my truck and always take care of it. I think I need to balance and rotate my tires which can also help. It now costs me $74 to fill my truck, gotta love that 30 gallon tank .
