I would like your thoughts of fuel grades. Originally Regular Unleaded is defined as 87 octane with no ethanol. Midgrade Unleaded is defined as 89 octane with ethanol added. Last year things changed and Regular stayed the same with no change and the midgrade stayed the same except the octane level was dropped to 87. I am being told to post which ever fuel is cheaper as Regular which is not right to me. It is inconsistent and those people that are looking for fuel without E10 and going to be mad if they get there only to find out the low price they were going to has E10. Most stations have on the signs "Super" or "Plus" which is Midgrade otherwise it would state that it is "Regular" The FTC regulates that fuel stations post the correct prices on the signs otherwise they can pull the operating license. I will wait to hear your thoughts.
