 Winter Gasoline Vs Summer Gasoline

Did you know there is a difference? I didn't, until a couple of weeks ago. The wife just bought 15,000 gallons of summer gas (for testing gas engines through the winter) at a price of $5.564 per gallon.

 Winter Gasoline Vs Summer Gasoline

I know I get worse mileage in the winter than summer. It's due to the environazies.
15,000 gals? That's some SUV. I think she paid too much too. Around here gas is back down to about $2.50 a gallon.

Yes Winter blends normally contain more alchol that summer blends probably some other additives also

So Billy, I have to ask. What does your wife do that she needs 15K gallons of gas? I assume she's not just doing it for fun.

Winter gas has additives (MTBE?) to control adverse emissions created when starting very cold engines.

I bet Peters could give us the straight scoop.

I don't know, Mark but one guy at a refinery told her winter gas was cheaper to make but they were already into the winter blend. Maybe that's one of the reason gas goes down in the cooler months?

Winter gas is a little hotter blend for better cold weather starting.

It may also differ based on where the winter gas is intended to be sold. The EPA has mandated special gas blends in many metro areas to cut down on smog and pollution. It's typically worse in winter with higher incidents of weather inversions trapping the "bad stuff" down low to the ground. Or it to cut back the CO emmisions? I can't rememebr.

Anyway, I know many metro areas are subject to this change for special winter blends. Milwaukee is one area I know has that designation. Many engines blew up that first winter it was mandated.

If winter is bad for the Ozone Warnings (ie pollution inversions), why do they only have them on the hot humid summer days in SE Wisconsin (Milwaukee-Chicago hell hole)?
