I ended my E0 testing after many years of E10 usage & many years of E0 burning for 3 cars. The MPG gain was NOT near expected(in the 8%, 7% & 5% range).

Glad it worked out for you! For me, it was a waste of time and money.

E0 is fabulous for old lawn mowers, weed wackers, motorboats, and classic cars. But it offers no cost advantage for modern vehicles (that have been designed to run on E10).
Try some 93 octane with Marvel mystery oil, my civic loves it better than e0 91 octane.

I think we talked in another thread but the inconvenience to get E0 was not worth my time

The marvel mystery oil comes in a 32 oz jug for $5.99 and you add 6 ounces per tank. The jug fits perfectly in the back seat cup holder in the civic.

Aye, yup! My HX is very happy on MMO. I run it fairly often. I've only run a handful of tanks on premium. I was thinking about throwing a gallon or two of E85 in, just for hoots (cheap octane).

Wish I could bolt a turbo on it

I put some MMO in the camaro which is known to dribble gasoline out of the tail pipes at idle and with mmo it no longer does that.

I've tried it in my truck and the camaro but noticed no difference, but the first tank of gas with mmo in the civic was like it gained 10 horse power. I've had Lucas in it, rxp, but the mystery oil is the one that made the most difference in the civic
