Best Answer

"Yes. There is 10-15% ethanol in all grades of gasoline".

Wrong, the legal limit for ethanol in conventional gasoline has always been "up to 10%" maximum (E10) -The EPA did just approve a new gas type called E15, but this is only "approved by the EPA" for use in on-road vehicles from 2007-onward - Note: Not a single engine manufacturer aprroves or warranties gas that contains over 10% ethanol. Ethanol can be (usually is) added to all grades of fuel -A few states aloow premium to be ethanol-free, but so not guarantee it...

Why is super unleaded gas in Iowa cheaper than unleaded 87?

Because it has Ethanol in it. The Ethanol increases the octane and lowers the price.AnswerBecause it has ethanol in it. Ethanol actually decreases the power of gasoline, and subsequently decreases mileage as well. Interestingly, it also makes gasoline more expensive- BUT - this is Iowa, and the government is subsidizing the addition of ethanol to gasoline. In Missouri, where the government does not subsidize, gasoline with ethanol is MORE expensive than its Iowa Counterpart. Long story short, its cheaper because of government subsidies.
