I also found the engine life/wear and tear factor, as well as that of the tires, an added incentive to slow it down a bit.

you can get rid of the ethanol but its going to cost you a lot more per gallon got to go up to the 93 oct. to get ethanol free. was thinking about trying this when I tow just to see if its worth it.

Yeah, whatever Acadianbob said! I keep our speed to a max of 65 mph. What's the hurry to set up camp? RV'ing: it's the journey, sometimes more than the destination. Sort of like the Road to Hana (Maui, HI)
