For the last 1,000 miles w FBO and RBs I am seeing 18.6 in mixed driving (averaging 33 mph). Anywhere from 300-400 miles per tank. I once hit close to 500 on a tank during a long interstate drive.

...I guess I drive like an A$$ too but I do a lot of pulls.

I think there is a lot of variation when people say "e40". Some are running 40% e85, some are speculating ethanol content and doing a best guess, others have tested and are running a true e40 or whatever the mix. It definitely drives the mileage down for a couple reasons. Less energy per given volume and

when my signature reads 40% e85, I mean I went to a station on empty and put around 6.5 gallons of e85 and the rest 93

(91 Octane only/Premium)
340 miles whenever I drive across California. I usually cruise it at 70mph.
My average is around 300 miles with mixed city driving.

30% of E85 and I am lucky if I can get 200 miles per tank. Haha.

Tank size on a 1-series is only 14 gallons.

I have no idea how you can get 300+ miles on a E85 mixture. I get like 185-220 depending on highway or not. Mods listed in sig.

My gas tank holds 18.5 gallons. I have averaged 18.6 mpg over the past 1,000 miles, so that's 344 miles per tank in mixed driving.
Cruising at steady speed on the highway I get high 20s.
