I have nothing against ethanol myself but my truck just hates it. I have to go up to about 89 octane to get it to run correctly.

I would consult a Toyota mechanic to see if there is any real problem with it before buying one.

My 1999 Dodge Ram 4wd gets 21 mpg 24/7/365 if I am not towing my camper trailer.
I dont really care if gas is 10.00 a gallon, I'll just stay home, but I am NOT buyin a rice burner so I can to give all my capital to the Japs for a vehickle then give the operating expense money to the aRabs for gas. In fact, next yr I am buying a bigger 4wd Dodge truck. It may sit in the drive way but DODGE POWER WAGON here I come.

The thing that doesn't make since to me about corn gas is that you get less mpg's. So it cost's more you use more and it's hard on the engine and it makes corn prices go up. So where's the benifits?

I don't want this to turn into an ethanol thread but a lot of money has been spent on negative embelishments with regards to ethanol. I would rather spend more at home than use what oil is left and support some other not so friendly country. Corn will get some type of subsidy so you just as well get some gas out of it.
