They're just oxygen, effectively. The car will add more fuel to keep the ratio correct. It's like cracking the throttle open more than 100%.

my tank is 12 gallons. if i get 70 mpg average. thats 840 miles right there. could get 900 miles if i averaged 75mpg. obviously i would have to avoid the interstate, and if i did take the interstate, id be the right lane person drafting behind semi trucks

that range is possible, but i would have to hypermile and have patience

Some small amount of ethanol may eventually be actually more favorable to fuel-economy in a warmer weather

My old 1998 Mazda gave around 5% better FE on straight ULP (E0).
My current 2012 Hyundai only shows a small increase over running E10.
I still choose to use ULP because I can often buy it cheaper than E10 at a petrol station near home.

IIRC the only E0 gasoline commercially available in my country is AvGas, yet its lead content renders it unsuitable for any car with its catalyst still in place. And it's so expensive that most of the piston-engined cropduster aircraft here fly on ethanol, which BTW is not so cost-effective for the flexfuel cars. Even though in some regions it's quite common to use regular E5 or E10 pump gas smuggled from neighboring countries instead of AvGas, it's an illegal practice here.

I'm curious the actual ethanol content that is typical in E10. 10% is the maximum, with less than that very typical.

Next puchase test it. I believe there are methods using cheap test kits or even DIY with mason jars. Sorry, I am exclusively diesel.

Every source Ive seen online says when they test e10 it actually is about 12-14 percent

And apparently Biden is pushing for more ethanol in gas now to help lower prices…
