Default E85 Fuel additive

I've lost 6 MPG in the Mustang hwy since they started adding this crap to gas. My coworker ina 4 cyl Ranger lost 4 MPG, and other people I've talked to have had similar results. Anyone else noticing a difference? What a dumb idea. Seriously.

I thought you were only supposed to put E85 in vehicles designed to run on it and normal fuel?

I can't say that I knowingly used it, I did run a tank of Chevron through the GT and got horrible gas mileage, I filled back up with the usual BP 93 and mileage is back to normal

From what I've heard, the gas here is now 10% ethanol or something like that.
