    That's why most gas stations put premium in smaller tanks. It gets consumed less but gets refilled just as often. I just wish the government would get rid of ethanol in premium gasoline. It would...

    Wow, that isn't very good gas milage. I average 46 - 48MPG riding two-up. Even if most of a tank is short trips (doesn't happen much), I 'll get low 40's.
