Buying, for your gasoline engine, designed to burn 87 octane gasoline molecules, 87 octane 10% ethanol blend(E10), is buying 114 octane(& higher) ethanol molecules AND buying 84 octane(& lower) gasoline molecules. That is why 87 octane E10 gets 8%, 7%, & 5% less mpg than 87 octane E0.

In almost all cases, 87 octane E10 molecules are NOT 87 octane.
