1.69 at my CITGO!!! what happend to the days when Diesel was cheaper than GAS....
It's still 10-20 cents a litre cheaper than gas here.../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Haven't you heard? People are greedy!!! Plus you have to consider how much it takes to fill an 18 wheeler each tank full. More money!!!
$1.75 at the Citgo here /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
hahahahahaha (manic laughter)......
Diesel prices....a topic close to my heart....I wish that I could pay $1.75 a gallon! Over here in England, 1 litre of diesel costs me £0.77, or $1.25!!! That's $4.75 for a US gallon (3.8litres)....
I filled my truck up a few days ago...cost me a cool $130....no wonder I'm broke!!!! No you kow why I drive around in 1.3litre Suzuki SJ413 most of the time...
I have been driving chevy diesels for a long time. It seems that the price ALWAYS goes up in the winter, (along with the the price of home heating oil.) It then goes down in the warmer months, cheaper than gas. I guess it all evens out in the end.
yea gas prices are pullin a fat chunk out of my wallet, here its $1.51 a gallon, not as expensive as everybody elses but i figure i put 30 bucks a week in almost and theres no way 30 dollars fills a 31 gallon tank.. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
Well I know in Europe the gas prices are high in General but I remember in France Gasoline was twice the Diesel fuel price, and with twice the consumption it's more like 4 times more overall, that is why 90% in France have diesels or want to at least.
Isn't it the same in England or close?
$1.79 her around Nashville, TN
yup, just filled up today and it was 24.00 for 14.267 gallons!! /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
Same price as the high octane, just west of Nashville along I-40. I spent 30 dollars which put a little over half full in my GMC 2500 Van. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
Last week... 67.9 cents/L. $86 and 126L to fill the Burb. Sure beats 82.9 cents/L for gasoline today /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
I filled up in Aldergrove for 61.9/litre last week for diesel. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
In reply to the questions about the diesel in France / UK...In France, diesel cost about 1/2 the price of petrol. But in the UK, alhtoguh diesels are getting more popular, ther is no real incentive to drive them. That said there are some amazing diesel engines appearing. The new VW SUV (the V Touareg) comes with a 4.9l V10 turbo diesel with 313hp and 550lbs/ft.
Personally, I would have bought a gas v8 Blazer if it weren't for the stupid gas prices here...love that V8 sound. That said, I can;t fault the 6.2. More power than any diesel I've ever driven, and 600miles to the tank isn't bad! And I do like the smell of diesel in the morning /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
Around here (Mid-Mississippi) gasoline is about $1.60/gallon, and diesel is $1.79/gallon!!! I miss the days when $30.00 filled up the tank, instead of $85.00!!!

The guy next door is a cement contracter. He has dump trucks, etc, etc, etc, All diesel. Every morning (in the spring and summer,) they start all these rigs up. I used to like the smell of diesel too.
Diesel here is 53.4/litre /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
Gas is 79.9/litre /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
Diesel here in Norway is 4,78 dollars for a gallon(US)!!
And we have oil from our own platforms offshore!
But colored, untaxed diesel is cheaper... The fines are not to bad, and you are "never" controlled with a small car, they are after the big rigs.
i know what i'am going to being doing when i get around to tossing in a diesel motor....BIODIESEL /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif i know most of you guys already know about it but just for kicks. check out this months Home Power mag,( www.homepower.com ) issue #93. the title is "Make Your Own Biodiesel for 54 cents a Gallon!!" great article and if you've got the means to do it, thats pretty cheap.. and it smells great in the morning , kinda like a bakery /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
