Other people that fill up four times a month are making starker decisions like not purchasing a prescription or two when they fill up. Check to see if Ethanol is 50 cents or even a dollar a gallon cheaper than gas in your area? Then the math is already calculated for you.

Conclusion So you save money on every gallon of E85 that you buy, and possibly qualify for a state incentive to do so. Are you also making a step away from the dominance of the petrolium suppliers of this world? Taking a stand for the environment and securing some American jobs in the E85 industry? It all seems so much nobler than being some gasoline bargain-hunting, lane-changing rat-race member, does it not? How does your economy view this?
