I paid 3.49 yesterday in chicago cause I forgot to fillup before leaving and wasn't sure I'd make it home. I saw 3.75 for regular at another station there.
it's about 3.35 here and a new mobil station opened up and I'm getting 2 mpg better using gas from there.

"You don't get to judge me for how I fix what you break"
i remember by how much i spend to fill up
so far my record is $36
vx has a 10.9 gallon tank...and i can usually get over 11 gallons in her.
these damn pumps vary so much in accuracy though
i wouldn't be surprised if many of my mpg calculations are off by a gallon or more on some fill-ups
some pumps shut off under different pressurization.
some are calibrated wrong
it seems the only way i can be sure is if my car is sputtering into the station...
and then i fill it up until gas comes out the nozzle
thats about 11.5 gallons
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
