First Tank of Ethanol free gas

This past weekend I found a gas station with ethanol free gas (Gate, San Jose Blvd in Jax. Fl). I thought what the heck! I filled up, 70 cents more per gallon :^( I have never run ethanol free gas in my car before. It is a 2006 Camry 2.4L with 5 SP.

I noticed the difference right away and at one time was up to 47mpg avg. per the Scan Gauge on the 2 lane section of the trip. What a difference! I averaged 42.2mpg for the trip back and still have over half a tank left and over 300 miles. The last half of the trip was interstate at ~ 70mph.

I have never obtained this mileage on regular ethanol gas. I am thinking, wow, I am really doing good on the p&g. The trip was really fun! So if you have to take a long boring trip and need some amusement and encouragement fill up with some ethanol free gas. It does a hypermiler good! :^)
