    Okay, just over 10 gallons (Had just under 1/4 of a tank left) and $35.00 !!!!! Yeah, it's 94 octane, but damn. $3.30 a gallon is high.

    No...4.11 a gallon is high... Be glad you're not filling up in NY! I drove around on the bike for 20 minutes tonight looking for the cheapest gas. $3.29 for 87 was the best I found...

    I don't think I've seen 94 octane around here. Usually it's just 87/89/93. BTW, anyone know the point of 89?

    I only use the highest octane gas. Always have. We're talking less then a .20 difference per gallon, and it has always seamed that it gets better mpg's on the higher octane.

    to each there own. Science wise, it doesn't work out but a lot of people believe it does and swear they have gains.

    ANyway, that is CHEAP. $3.35 a gallon for regular back home in Perkasie.

    thats cause he lives in South Dakota...

    Premium is 93 here, 94 is only at Sunocos and thats the 4th grade they carry, its even more then premium which is somewhere around 3.55 now I believe.

    Except at the cheap stations where premium is 92 instead of 93.

    I fill up with 91 octane Ethanol. Normally .05 cheaper than regular unleaded and 1 octane lower than premium.

    Most stations around her carry 85 octane, 87 octane, and 91 octane. The 66 on Deadwood Ave. in Rapid City has 94 octane at the same price as the 91 octane at most of the other stations in town.

    It's almost always 87, 89 (with ethanol), and 91 around here. I live in New Ulm, MN where I filled up for $2.79 yesterday. I drove two hours west to school last night and the price here is $3.29... :yikes:

    Yep on base it is up to 2.99 for 87 It cost me between $60-$70 to fill the K5.

    It runs about $30 just to fill my Saturn, I am glad it gets 31 mpg :D

    Today I filled up my '94 Bravada. Cost was $60.

    Then I went straight home and got the wife's '00 GTP and put in $40.

    Ethanol prices were at $3.059, which is ridiculous.

    Normally, my vehichle fuel bill from COOP each month is right around $100. Hard to believe I filled $100 in one day.

    I still have a reciept from another fill up for the GTP before I went to OKC last weekend. That was $33.

    Then I went and filled up my gas cans for the mowers, weedeater and leaf blower. Total gallons was 8.5 and the damn things cost $27 to fill up.

    All these prices of my fill ups are for this month alone so far. I think I will have to fill up the GTP again before the month is over.

    This is absurd. :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: :angry1:

    I'm guessing around 30 on the highway. How do you like your Alero ?? When I first got mine it felt cramped, but now I don't notice that. I've got the GLS with all leather, 3.4 V6, sports suspension, ...ect, bla bla bla.

    HMMM, had to stop on the way to work this morning and get some liquid gold in the tanker,,,was almost on bankrupt, so i figured i wouldn't make it all the way to work,,,$80 later, and STILL only just alittle over half tank :doah:

    told the attendant i wanted the pump just turned on,,,she needed an exact amount, so we sorta kinda figured up a total as to how much i would have needed,,,she came up with $122 :eek1:

    I said just set it at $80,,,,this bites :mad:

    26.6 gallons, and this was the cheapest around here at $3.049
