and I bring some basic numbers for 2 tank fulls of gas. 1 being my best gas mileage and 2 being my worst.

1. (coming back)
A/C - OFF
Wind - front, behind and sides (wind was all over the place)
Speed - 77-78mph (23 miles in construction 50-55mph)
Type of gas - 91 (or 92. A few fill up has 92)
Miles driven - 256.4
Gallon of gas - 10.5
Mileage that tank - 24.5

2. (going there)
A/C - ON and OFF (about half and half)
Wind - very little
Speed - 77-78mph
Type pf gas - 91 (no 92 until later in the trip)
Miles driven - 220.3
Gallon of gas - 10.8
Mileage that tank - 20.4

I cant complain for cruising at 77mph expected worse.

My average mileage was about 22mpg (including my city driving in and around the Twin Cities).

I know but all the other gases, where I live, have Ethanol in them and I am not fond of the Ethanol mixed gas.

In my experiences Ethanol burned faster and ran rougher (2 vehicles plus some friends and family). I could try it with my E but I just haven't had good luck with it.

I have been running Shell V-Power to clean it up because I bought used and you never know how the people before you treated the vehicle. Its seems to slowly keep climbing up in mpg the longer I run V-Power. When I first got my hands on the E it was luck to get 20mpg. Now I am at about 20-21mpg.
