Ethanol

I've tried the 10% ethanol blend and noticed a slight decrease in overall mpg. Not much of a difference, no more than a few mpg but certainly not worth the extra couple cents a gallon. Of course I'd give anything for the 85% blend seeing how cheap it is but you know...

Anyone else able to confirm the lower mpg?

I doubt you'll find an E85 compatible Honda any time soon. Because ethanol dissolves aluminum, flex-fuel engines seem to usually have cast iron heads. It's hard to find out for sure because the information on flex-fuel cars and trucks is pretty limited, but here's one source:

I don't think Honda makes any engines with cast iron blocks, let alone heads...
