Insurance might surprise you. In 93, even some SSE'* didn't have dual airbags, but ALL SSEi'* do. That'* a discount.

Use the premium stuff only. You will thank your car and it will thank you in the end. The benefits of using it in the first place are well worth the little bit of extra money you pay. Also, insurance is dirt cheap for me with my 94 SSEi. My car gets great gas mileage and is pretty liable.

I'm a full time University student (aka unemployed), so I feel your pain. But the increased efficiency gained by using premium balances out the higher cost (which is around 89 cents per litre here).

ABS, Dual Air Bags, and an alarm will all reduce your insurance. I suggest if cash is a problem, a cheap walmart alarm so you could write it down on the forms. Helped on my old SSE even though I never used it.

Wasn't there a big thread on this debating fuel types?

I pay LESS for the LSS vs. my old 93' in general. The insurance is cheaper on the LSS. Dual air bags and traction control are big discounts. The */C for some reason doesn't add a dime.

YES> only use premium. i havent even chanced it in my GTP! i was told that i could use midgrade in case of emergency but i couldnt use boost and my car would run like crap, i only use premium and even though it is more expensive, it isnt worth chancing it!!!! IMHO!!

Ouch, mostly city driving I hope?

Where in Canada are you located?

EDIT: For those who don't know, 300 kms is less than 150 miles...
