GAS TIP

Can you believe how much gasoline is costing? It's absolutely insane. We've found a little tip that has helped our gas mileage. Ready? Here it is:

BUY REAL GAS!!

Yep, seek out the stations that sell gas and not gas with ethanol. The mileage in my little zoom zoom has increased by 6 miles per gallon, town driving, by going to the station that has real gas!

I asked the owner about it. He told me that his big truck and everyone that has talked about buying gas from his station, has better gas mileage plus the autos/trucks are running better, less clattering, etc.

Since this is a locally owned mom and pop station, the price per gallon is less, too! Win, win.

The only problem is that some states now require a certain percentage of ethanol. In the long term, it is going to be a problem as it pits the gas producers against the need for food. We're already barely producing enough food world wide.

Yep, any and all of my tips could be useless in the next year but it's one that is working for us now.
