I was just wondering what the price of diesel and E85 is where you live. Diesel is generally 20-30 cents above the price of regular gas. There is one E85 station where I live and the price there is always 20cents less then the price of regular gas.
2008 EPA adjusted:
Distance traveled by bicycle in 2007= 1,830ish miles
Average commute speed=25mph (yes, that's in a car)
I just saw your Aveo specs. 16ft turning circle? Don't you mean 16th ft turning radius? My Saturn has a 38ft turning circle, I think. "Wide for a compact car" is a common gripe about the S-series. That would be a 19ft turning radius.
With a 16ft turning circle, you wouldn't have to do 3-point turns to change direction on a two-lane road. Just crank the wheel to full lock and you're going the opposite direction.
Diesel has been higher than gas here for over a year, kinda varies from .20 to .50 more a gallon.
I think the E-85 varies as well I picked up a few gallons today for 2.25 gal. Going to make some E-15 and E-20 and see how my car likes it.
reg gas was 2.61 where I got the E-85, so only .31 gal cheaper.
$2.87.9 for diesel - just filled up a few minutes ago.
E85??? What's that? (that means we haven't got E85 near here)
Took my street rod on a cruise in the country this afternoon and paid $2.90 a gallon for 87!!! One pump at the station - 2 stores in town - ALL businesses and occupants shut down to come outside and check out the car when I pulled up. I could still hear the banjos dueling..........
