My Vee is corn-fed with 89 octane gasohol. So far, after 1200 miles, it's getting 44 mpg at average speeds of 65 to 75 mph. And no pinging that I've heard.
I did run one tankful of 87 octane non-gasohol (regular swill) and the mileage dropped to 39 mpg. Could have been higher revs or fighting wind as well as this has been the windiest spring in many years in Iowa.
