summer blend fuel is here. :hurray: Refiners are currently switching to make summer-grade gasoline ahead of the May 1 compliance date for refiners and product terminals. Summer-grade gasoline has a lower volatility than winter-grade gasoline to limit evaporative emissions that normally increase with warm weather and cause unhealthy ground-level ozone.

summer blend is here again. yea ! ive already noticed increase in my mpg.
Based on one (fairly small!) fill up?

Not enough information on your "Fuelly" to make that conclusion.

If there is any difference in summer blend vs winter, I sure can't tell by my mpg reports. Averaging around 57 mpg, but I have been using nothing but 100% gasoline in my DL650 since I bought it in Aug '14.

The only difference in the gasoline so far is the increase in the price of the stuff--up to $3.089 a gallon for 87 octane, ethanol gas. 100% gasoline doesn't seem to be available up here.
