Yes the lack of ethanol in summer blend fuels will increase your mpg, but only by about 5% and as usual that figure depends on how the vehicle is driven. I drive like a sissy and 1 month ago my mpg went from ~22mpg to ~25mpg (just did 436 miles on 17.1 gallons). You still need to calibrate that scangauge... I feel strongly that you should record actual miles and gallons added and do the math until the results match the scangauge consistently.

Its a pain to calibrate accuratly but the effort is worth. My Ultra Gauge now many times matches the hand calculation. Since early April I have logged about 800 miles and my average MPG for that period is 26.2 MPG. These gauges will teach you how to drive frugally. Sign up at Fuelly.com and then it is real easy to log you mileage.
