Re: Fuel Prices gettin HIGH again :( (GShyneDM)

I know what you mean. I have to drive 100 miles a day. I gas up every 3-4 days. Talk about a beating on your wallet. But hey, eventually it all balances out. How much fun was it when regular gas was close to a buck last year? 91 was $1.20 or something ridiculously low like that? Also what about paying close to $30 for a tank of gas? Eventually, it balances out.

You'll get no sympathy from this side of the pond.<p>It costs me over £50 for a tank of optimax (that's about $80).<p>On the positive side, regular unleaded here is 95RON, superplus is 97RON and optimax is 98.5RON

That's why I think Sunoco GT100 isn't that expensive. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> Well, at least for someone like me who doesn't drive the C that often.

Re: Fuel Prices gettin HIGH again :( (GShyneDM)

I haven't had any problems with costco gas. I've been gasing up there for over a year now and I haven't had any hesitations with the engine. I doubt that costco gas is related to the transmission <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">
