$1.229/l or more, for 87 octane, Canadian if I fill up on our side, or $3.429/US gallon which, even after a dismal 12%+ exchange rate still works out to about $1-1.02/l for 89 octane (neither vehicle needs 91, in fact they don't need 89, but it's the same price as 87...so I'm not wasting money, but I'm also not helping power or fuel economy either I guess...so I'm wasting something). Big savings when you're filling a truck (136l tank) a car (60l tank) and another car (36l tank) - and yes, it even pays to fill THAT up in the US - I wasted $6 just now filling up here. Being a Sunday it's a matter of "do I want to wait in line for potentially an hour" due to all the weekend cross-border traffic (i.e. Cdn's going south and now coming home; American's don't come here for nothing but to fish or hunt, even though their money will go 10-12% further here, and a lot of the times the prices on our side are in their favour - except for gas).
Have been paying $3.859 for Arco diesel lately at a local station
so really cannot complain except regular unleaded
87 is now lower at $3.759.
I get much better F E with my trusty old E-320 CDI.
That's less than 12 cents per mile and that is what counts!
The recent rate in USA for fuel as per Wikipedia reference is,
Diesel : around 3.88 dollars per gallon. Where 61% crude oil, 11% for refining, 16% for distribution and 13% for taxes.
Gasoline: 3.61 dollars per gallon
I thought the price difference for diesel was greater in the US? People keep telling me its not worth them buying a diesel in the US because of the price hike, but my diesel car gets around 70 - 80 % better mileage than my gas car previously, but the fuel is only around 10 % more expensive.
Those prices are national averages. There is some wide regional differences. I think the prices are close in California, but the last time I noted the difference in Pennsylvania, diesel was nearly 50 cents more than regular gasoline.
Then the majority here are penny wise, pound foolish when it comes to fuel prices. They see the price per gallon is just more for diesel, or even premium octane gasoline, and just discount any car that requires it. Not bothering to take into account that the improved fuel economy of said car will yield the same or better cost per mile as a regular gasoline car.
Its a great shame people dont do the math properly. Since changing to diesel, fuelly has calculated that my "price per mile" is exaclty half of what it was with a gas car, even with the increase of price for diesel fuel. So even if the price of diesel doubled, it would still cost the same as my previous car.
$3.099/US gallon on the US side of the border (about .96/l after I add exchange) and $1.129ish per liter on the proper side of the border :-) - I kid...it's the side I live on. But I buy all my gas on the US side. Saves roughly $10 on the car, $20 on the truck or $80-$100 per month in my pocket.
