    Wow! I didn't do too bad with my quick calculations while up on computer battling insomnia. I would use the breakeven cost as 30%. If e85 is 30% cheaper than regular gas (e10), then it is worth buying. Otherwise, stick to regular gas.

    Walmart has it for $3.41 here in Montgomery. The Shell down the street has it for $3.49, but the one down the street has it for $3.55. They always are one of the most expensive stations in town.

    I've just paid 57/$83.50 top top my gas tank up from just below half full.

    Our gas here is now 6.49/$9.73 a gallon and the gas station in our village that I use is usually one of the cheapest around by a couple of pence per liter.

    At this rate to fill my car from empty on the gauge would now cost me 94.31/$141.50 and set to go up by just over 3p pltr or 0.145/$0.2175 gallon. That's as near as dammit ten bucks for one of our gallons from a 'cheap' gas station.

    Damn, Ken.
    I'm almost embarrassed to post this after reading that you're paying...

    $3.649/Reg, $3.829/Mid, $3.939/Prem ... and that's on the highway (where it's usually a few cents higher than in town - but it's more convenient to get it on the highway, so I do).

    Just a rough check but our prices are up and down like a fiddler's elbow and, locally, are varying (in the space of a week) between 1.33/ltr to 1.40/ltr which is roughly 6.04/$9.48 to 6.54/$9.98 a gallon. Get ready to live with it guys, we lead where others follow.

    Here, of course, Trevor. Where else would it be? If it was anywhere else it would be 'there'.
