less volatile fuel, denser air, no ice collecting on my car and adding weight, no 4x4 suv drivers driving 4mph on non icy roads, no slush ice/ snow collecting in my wheel wells and rubbing against my transaxle

since when is hotter air denser?

that'* one of the reasons you CAN get better economy, due to the less dense air you experience less aerodynamic drag.

could look at it the obama way... gas is only 3.45 9/10/gal it could be 5.45 9/10/gal... 3 is definately a smaller number than 5 that is true.
