    The only difference would be ethanol regulations, which vary state to state

    not to many, love it the way it is

    I would be interested to know if we have ethanol everywhere here in NC. I read that in 06 the state ( by law ) made it ok for stations that do have ethanol to not have to label it at the pumps so for the consumer it is like flying blind.

    Here in AZ, it seems all our Fuel is delivered from 2 locations/distributers. Union, and Firebird. Places that use Union Fuel (Arco, Chevron, Circle K, Mobil) seem to give me poor mpg, and performance. Places that use fuel from Firebird (QT, Diamond shamrock, Shell, Safeway) seem to give the best performance and MPG. Octain out here is 87, 89, 91.
