There's no Missouri BS Thread. So, uh, Now there is.

Anyone in the Columbia MO or Washington Areas?

I just moved here from FL and have a question about fuel. Do they use a winter blend in MO? My mpg has dropped in the last couple of weeks. Just looking for an answer, seems to be running normally. Thanks.

Not that I'm aware of. I know most stations have 10% ethanol fuel, which isn't as efficient as 100% gas. Did they use ethanol down in FL?

If they do, I've never noticed an MPG drop in my Jeep. How drastic is it?

Not really sure in my jeep.... Speedo is off so the odometer is too. When I fill up my daily driver I try to go places that don't put ethanol in their fuel though. I get an extra 50 miles to a tank not using ethanol.

Really? Wow. I've noticed a difference between the Ethanol I buy in CoMo and the no ethanol I buy at home but nothing that drastic... I was wondering how much his mileage dropped, it might be an 02 sensor he's having problems with.

Ethanol definitely makes a difference. I drive 23 miles one way to work every day, my car gets ~24mpg highway (Lexus IS300), and running on ethanol gas I usually refill around 325-330 miles or so. If I use no-ethanol gas I make it to more around 360-380 miles before I fill up, depending how much city driving I do.

West County St Louis in here. Close to the river. Only lived here for about 6 years though. The ducks are on the move now, so far just Mallards.

Flat Nasty Off Road Park near Jadwin MO. They have mild to wild (nasty) trails. I've never made it up there yet myself but got some good friends that go there often they say its awesome.

It went from around 17 to about 11mpg. there has been a killer head wind for the past week or so. I know my O2s are fine, checked them. I'm hoping its been the wind. XJs arent known for there aerodynamics.

Yes they use the 10% in FL also, it stinks. Haven't found a station in Springfield yet that offers non. Haven't looked to hard either. In FL it was about a dollar more a gallon for non.

Wait, I'm onto something. Florida's relatively flat, right? well, Missouri Isn't, especially where you're at lol I don't know what your commute's like, but when I drive at home I probably lose 4-5 mpg on driving up here in the flats...
