I can't identify any fe loss at ethanol blends less than 50% vs E10.

My testing is pretty coarse but I've found agreement with those whose testing is presumably better than mine.

My modus operandi now is to occasionally use full-on E85 in the summer and only E10 in the winter- and proportional blends inbetween depending on temps- to manage cold start issues.
