It was 3.95 per gallon I think. It's not too expensive since I paid 3.3 per gallon for 100 octane before back in Rochester.<P>And AAM was asking 7 something for their 118.<p>[This message has been edited by The_one_n_only (edited 05-28-2002).]

We took it pretty easy on the country roads on the way back(right after the gas station), didn't really punch it until this backroad before the highway. The country road area was more or less a residential area, so....<P>But still, I'd call that pretty "immediate". It was amazing....my friend was just in my car this past Saturday and he knew how my car drove, we were both very surprised tonight after we tried to open it up a bit on the highway.<P>Now I can understand how APR's chip for the 1.8T was able to make that kinda difference after switching from 93 octane to 100. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">
