I live in the corn belt and our 89 octane has 10% ethanol. What gas should I use with my 5.7 Hemi? My choices are 87 octane, 89 octane w/ ethanol, or 92 octane.
inputusername said:So the 89 w/ ethanol should be the choice here over the 87 or 92 without ethanol? Sounds good...I currently can only put the 92 in my 2000 Durango R/T because it has a performance chip that calls for it and I have never ran ethanol in any vehicle due to it being less efficient and being somewhat skeptical of the whole industry and the giant subsidies that it requires. But with it being at least 10 cents cheaper per gallon, that probably eliminates any efficiency difference.
inputusername said:You have ethanol in every grade of gasoline in Illinois??? That is crazy...they give you no choice? Only our 89 has it, but a buddy of mine owns a BP station by the interstate and he tells me that about 75% of the gas he sells is the BP Silver which is the 89 w/ ethanol. This is probably because it is the cheapest.
Yep!inputusername said:Yeah...Archer Daniels Midland is based in Decatur so I assume your government has their lips pressed tightly to their arses in exchange for some financial contributions. That whole ethanol industry is crazy...it can only survive because of the huge subsidies.
Welcome to the wonderful planet Earth. Until politics is replaced (like that will ever happen) with a rational decision making process (computer directed even), stupid decisions, special interests, greed and others will continue to prevail.inputusername said:That is crazy...they give you no choice?
