Saving on gas

Want to save money? Try running your car on pure gas rather than fuel mixed with ethanol.
Last week, I took a road trip to Roanoke, Va.
Before I left York County, I filled up on gasoline that contains no ethanol. Only about three stations in the area sell pure gas. The rest peddle fuel that contains 10 percent ethanol.
I made the trip and still had a half tank left from my original fill-up some 300 miles back.
A week later, before I hit the road back to York, I filled up on gas that contained ethanol.
I took the same route and made the same one stop. When I arrived home, I had burned through three-quarters of a tank of gas.
Ethanol may have environmental benefits, but you’re not saving any money behind the wheel.
