I usually use 1/2 tank premium and 1/2 tank regular. I use a little notebook to remember what kind of petrol I added to the tank the previous time (1/2 of premium or regular)

I buy midgrade, which on average is about the same. Around here, regular/midgrade/premium is 87/89/92-93 octane. All varieties are E10; 10% ethanol and we get the cruddy winter blend gas.
Unless I've got an 80+ mile trip any given day, I'll run the tank down until the distance-to-empty range is 40, 30, or even "---" miles before filling up.
Using my cost tracker spreadsheet, gas is running 13-17 cents/mile.

CEO speeches the past year or so, Mitsubishi has absolutely no plans to pull out of the U.S. market. For one reason, the i-MiEV sales program is just getting started. Mitsubishi has invested a lot of money in to getting their new all-electric perfected and they want return on their investment!
Their i-MiEV is the all-electric car I would part dollars with first if I wanted to go that route. That's just one reason. Anyone else read about a Hybrid Lancer for 2013? Mitsubishi is planning on building one, and that goes back about 2 years when they announced that project. These people are enthusiasts, not just backyard automotive brawlers...they know the U.S. market still has potential for sales for them and they're not going to just turn around and walk away with their tails between their legs. Not even close, kimo-slobby's.
Keep your eyes and ears open for some really exciting stuff in the next couple a years from Mitsubishi.

My Lincoln LS calls for 91 Octane. Around here you can buy either mid-grade 89 or Premium 93. I run it down to half tank, fill with mid-grade, next time use premium.

In 2013 we will see the next gen Outlander, which is currently being shown in concept as the PX-MiEV. It's a Plug-in Hybrid, which can even double as a power generator if your on a camping trip or during power outage. The hybrid Evo is just speculation, but with the way things are going, it's not impossible. There is already an electric Lancer Evolution that they tested for rallying, see here: http://goo.gl/Jixvc

I was in Missouri last month and a Shell station offered 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, and 92 octane. Strangest thing I've ever seen on a gas pump.

A long time ago, Sunoco had the "custom-blended" pumps, where you could get anything from 86-94...
I don't think they do that, any more..
