Boy does Illinois B20 really kill economy and performance
I keep forgetting how bad our Illinois mandated B20 really is. Until I fill up with B5 in an adjoining state.
For those that don't know, here in Illinois the only diesel legal for sale on public roads is B20. The only good news is that Illinois also reduced the tax on B20 (yes, the first time this state has ever reduced a tax!!!). So while our petro gas is always $.25 -.50 per gallon more expensive than and of our surrounding states, B20 is the same price as B5 in other states.
BUT, every time I fill up with B5, I'm reminded how crappy a fuel B20 is. performance goes down and so does mpg. Whenever I fill up in WI, I consistently get 2-3 mpg more on the B5.
