I've joined your campaign to "school" Iowa GBs about midgrade. I've given several this lengthy post. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>"We have a tough task in Iowa City. I wrote to the GB Administrator for clarification on their rules for the website. Their position is that we must report gas prices by octane grade not price and regardless of what marketing label the station puts on the regular. So, regular is 87 octane and it doesn't matter if it has ethanol or not. We have our choice which regular to report in the regular slot. But we are only to report octane 89 as mid-grade and octane 91 or 93 as premium. Many of our stations do not offer mid-grade or premium and thus those slots are to be left blank. The administration hopes to have an option for ethanol and non-ethanol sometime in the future but not now." >>>>> It's helped a little. Some just get mad at me.

Thanks for the forum link. I just joined the fray.

In Iowa City, we have a Sinclair station that has 3 pumps and all are 87 octane. Some people insist in reporting one as midgrade because the price is higher. [w/o ethanol]

Yep, you are right. So many GBs put increasing prices in order instead of GRADE of fuel. The GB administration wrote to me say that they have no interest in reporting with or without ethanol prices but just report GRADES. Maybe your quote will help.

I love your quote: If octane isn't >=89 it isn't midgrade! I'm amazed how many people don't get it.
