Default WIth the falling gas prices...

...my supercharger has been getting more of a workout. When it is 3 bucks a gallon, I hated to hear it kick in. Now at $2, it is sweet music to my ears.

Yup! When gas was at its highest prices I added a supercharger to my car! Boost = fun.

Mine wasn't music to my ears until the intake I still drive conservatively, but I enjoy the times I don't much more.

Even at the highest prices I had a supercharger installed so I guess it all depends. on if you like to drive fast. Cheaper prices sure help.

Ever since learning about KR and cheaper gas, I always fueled up with Premium.

You would think gas prices would slow down the WOT runs, but I have tranny issues AND balding front tires and well, the foot finds the floor evey now and then
