Do you mean like E85? I live in Illinois, so ethanol is big here. But your milage isn't quite as good with E85, and it't only marginally cheaper, so in terms of dollars per mile you don't really save anything; in fact, it may cost more.
I don't drive a big car either. I'd sure hate to have to spend $60 to fill up my tank. When gas prices go up, it doesn't really effect us too much, as both DH and I drive small cars. We do have an old rust bucket of a pickup but we only use it for hauling stuff, stuff that we can't do with a Beetle or TT.
