87 is breaking federal regulation lol. At least if its labeled as Flex fuel or e85. Everything is bigger in Texas though right? Including gas station owners balls I reckon? :cool:

Higher E content:

Less fuel range.

Should be less expensive since gasoline retail price is higher than ethanol.

Hence why the C store has such high e in the ground in the first place I'm sure. The yellow hose is always a straight grade from the in ground tank, no blending. Site owner pays a little less for e87 but risks having those hoses bagged and shut down if weights and measures wants to come test alcohol content.

And that's mixed with a little less then 1/4 tank of 83%.

Getting about 200 miles to a tank with mixed driving, about 13mpg. That was on the 83%.

Paid $2.15gal.

So youre saying loading the tanker that subsequently fills gas station in ground tanks right?

We've got one of the largest fuel depots on the east coast here in Greensboro right around the corner from work. Interesting stuff, though I've never been behind the scenes. You sell flow meters for that business?

I sell some to terminals, but they usually buy cheaper meters for blending fuel at the terminals. They buy mine for fuel coming in off the pipelines into the terminals.

I've noticed the higher ethanol content when I get a few drums from Lubbock TX versus getting it in Las Cruces NM. Las Cruces is usually in the low 70's and Lubbock is in the low to mid 80's.

That's really high, even for Texas. Highest I've seen is 81-82 from a Kroger here in Cypress.
This was at Kroger in Pearland.

Kroger seems to have the best E for sure. Last week the gauge flickered between 81 and 82. 87 would make for a big smile shortly after fill up!
