Re: Window Sticker Discrepancy

Re: Should I use REC 90 gas in my V8?

OK - Two full tanks of REC 90 and two full tanks of Mid-Grade 89.

The results:

REC 90: 422 miles / 35.20 gallons = 11.99 = 12 MPG

Mid-Grade 89: 453 miles / 40.58 gallons = 11.16 = 11.2 MPG

I'd go for the fold down seat it the seat comfort / looks are the same. How often does the passenger seat need to be moved a lot anyway? The convenience for long items would be nice.
