        I just filled up high test and will check the numbers again. It's a mix of local and some highway (but more local driving than highway), which might explain the mileage being on the lower end of the spectrum.
        Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the humor and wasn't offended.

        I pulled out the original window sticker for my 2003 Thunderbird. It was rated at 18 MPG City, 24 MPG Highway.
        On my 2010 Lincoln Town Car which has a V8, I get about 21 MPG in combined city/highway driving per the information display in the car. I would guess that to be about right for the Thunderbird too.

          Really?
          Ethanol has a higher octane rating than most petroleum – usually at 113 RON (Research Octane Number) – and creates very few particulates.
          And with E85, drivers should notice no performance loss when using E85. In fact, some FFVs perform better—, have more torque and horsepower— running on E85 than on regular gasoline.
          According to DOE.
          Curious.

              I get about 16 city. We're a little over 3/4 of the way to New Orleans from CA, will do the average mpg when we get there. I'm sure the 93 octane we can't get at home will help.
