I believe some of the 09's are E85 capable...if you have E85 in your tank and your car is capable of using it, then 16 (even though a little low still) isn't too far off....E85 isn't going to give the same kind of mileage that regular 87 will...there's a reason it's cheaper at the pump.
Did a little more research real quick...it looks to me that only the HHR has a E85 capable version of the LAP engine...it's listed as LE8. Unsure if they used these in the Cobalt's. I am thinking they didn't. OP, can you explain what the dealer was saying when they said Ethanol in the gas? Were they talking E85 or were they just saying Ethanol in the gas (because the latter is not uncommon for any gas).
Please come back and clarify a few things. Thanks.
