Vidterry,

That's what I recall from our trips to WI...But, I also seem to recall that NE, while also ethanol-mandated, has 92 or maybe even 93 available, in some places. Could be wrong, tho.

More importantly, have you experienced any problems using ethanol, either with your erstwhile 2.5 or current 3.2? I had some minor hard-starting difficulties during 1st trip. So, on the return leg, and during second trip, I avoided ethanol completely in NE & IA. No problems using 87 (Gasp!). Not 100% sure it was the ethanol, or something with M44s, or who knows?
