So if my math is right, if you get 8 mpg using REG and 10 mpg using PREM, you are close to breakeven...
8mpg = 80 miles/10 gallons x $2.34 = $23.40
10mpg = 80 miles/8 gallons x $2.97 = $23.76
Difference is $0.36 per 80 miles, or $3.60 per 800 miles.
Seems like PREM is the way to go as it burns cleaner and is better for the beast!
I am going to try PREM this weekend for my short trip and look for improvement.
