I wonder how much he spent on this. I mean gas prices are so high now. There are times I just really want to use the bus instead.

The article is a little confusing... is he claiming to use 10 gallons of gas because E95 is only 5% Gas, and ignoring the ethanol? Why not just use E100 and do it with "zero" gas?

Agree, he substitutes gas for E95, however it costs more to the environment and the price of beef to produce a gallon of e95 than to extract a gallon of gas.. It is a cheap publicity trick...

His Toyota will burn 90 gallons of E95 to cross USA, yet I can do it in my gen 1 insight with less than 40 gallons of of gas( if I manage to fix my O2 sensor problem I can do it with less than 30 gallons). and I am not even a professor.......
