I can but the price isn't worth it. 15-20% more than E10.

Had an unintended test of E85 in the Pen's Rogue today, her last 2 cars were FFV, was under 20 miles of range left when she filled it yesterday. Didn't start as quick as normal this morning, had a CEL and getting 24 mpg took about 15 miles to figure out what she did.

As (IIRC here) showing 100 mpg going up a hill where the Insight shows 50, then showing 50 down the other side where the Insight's display is pegged at 150, and the SG is showing it's in DFCO.

PS: I do have an SG that dates from about 2004 or so, soon after I got the car. Recent versions could do a better job. And my examples are from memory of the first year or so - I haven't used the mpg stuff since.

When you fill up do you tell the Insight how much fuel it took to fill the tank? My Citroen van, you just tell it you have filled up, not how much. With the ScanGauge you actually tell it how many gallons you put in (or should do). I have yet to run the ScanGauge for long enough to do a second fill up, but I am looking forward to seeing how accurate it is once I get to a third and subsequent top ups.
I must admit though, your figures for up and down hills seem wrong. There is a setting in the setup to correct DFCO errors.

Not in mine, as least as far as I remember. But as I said, mine's more than 10 years old, so newer ones might have more features.
