Just outside of New Orleans there are several places that sell conventional gas. I gripe because the one closest to my home is a hard in and hard out even for a 26footer. I work part time at a Sam's station and mixed regular was $2.04 a gal. Cash price at closest home conventional store is $2.39 a gal. Don't think I would use it at a buck more a gallon either. I don't know if it's all in my head but the Lexington seems to run better on it and mpg is closer to 9.5 than 7.5 ..is it worth the extra $.35 a gal? Go figure. Happy trails and we'll see you around the campfire one day.

At that price difference I would certainly use the non ethanol fuel. Especially as much as rv's sit without running.

Ethanol produces less heat energy per gallon than gasoline, so you should get more mpg without it. There's an interesting chart here that says E10 has 96.7% of the energy of gasoline, and info here where the govt admits that mpg suffers by up to 5%. Automakers say ethanol harms your engine, and it causes problems in the economy and the world food supply.
