Just saw the last station in my area trip over 400 cents per gallon in the last day or two (Costco Lancaster)...Tuesday I paid 397.9 and today at the same station I paid 404.9. Last Friday it was 390.9. I also noticed more people shutting off their engines in line, but maybe it was because the weather was nice, and not hot enough to need to keep the A/C on.

I'm the same way I run nothing but premium, even in my lawn mower.
For the same reason, it runs better, longer.

Way I see things you pay either at the pump or later at the shop.

$4.099 in WV, 89 is $4.199. I remember when it used to be .899 and .999 - wow - apparently it STILL costs 10? difference for them to put in additives that make your gasoline not burn!

One of these days someone will distill their gasoline and figure out how to run it on the fumes of a LOT lower octane gasoline and get 150 MPG out of a 4000 pound car.

my chevette does get 5-1= mpg better on midgrade over regular (both E 10 mind u) dunno why cuz runs smooth starts easy on either type...i can get them for the same price (different stations) so its win win for me for using midgrade in it.

s-10 it doesnt matter...(F/I so ti adjusts timign and all that fun stuff accordingly)


but please don't run premium in a lawnmower... they have like a 4:1 compression ratio...you could run a lawnmower off booze if u wanted to the compressions so low...i service lawnmowers as my job and i have yet to have a fuel (gasoline only) problem, most of the time its grass dirt , etc clogging the intake screen in the gas tank... or their trying to use 3 year old gas that looks like tea...what kills lawnmowers is lack of oil (not cleanliness of oil, just lack of it) heck i just changed the oil last year in one of our pushmowers since it was new in 1989...sure it was black but we kept it topped off.

heck my model A engine has a 4:1 ratio, theres lots of storys about during the depression of people running them off moonshine...

if u want your engine to be clean just run a bottle of injector cleaner thru the gas tank every month or so, but out of all the modern car engines ive taken apart they've all had clean valves and clean everything (most of em were junkyard specials)

That's gotta be sarcasm. That's sarcasm, right?

Hmm....is brandy better than stale gas? I'm pretty sure I've got most of a large bottle old crappy brandy that I don't like, I'd love to burn it off in my mower.

If I get a still, can I use all the old cheap gift wine that's rotting in bottles in my house?

My mower runs on beer alone.

I drink a beer, then start pushing it. The 20" reel starts spinning as I push, the grass cuts and looks like a golf course professional cut it, and I'm happy.

Then I refill the motor with more beer when I'm done. You know, to keep it in primed...er...prime shape.
