Since the summer formulation kicked in (about 2 tanks ago) I've gotten 24.7mpg on the first tank and 24.9mpg on the last tank. About ready to fill up again and it should be right around there. On the winter mix, the same trip was netting me around 22.3-23.0mpg.

what octane do you use and what do you add to it?
