Just got through filling mine up with 92 Octane. $26 and 13.007 gallons. Now i'm starting to wondering if It was a mistake buying a supercharged car or not. Then my mind comes back to me as I mash the loud pedal and I realize it was not mistake.

Me either it might cost me a little more to fill up the SSEi, but i'm getting about 24mpg avg and the old 89 Bonny was only getting 20mpg avg so it was all worth it.

2 weeks ago I was in Belleville ON and I paid 69.7 cents a litre. I left Belleville and by the time I got back to Halifax I was paying 87 cents a litre standing at a gas station looking across the harbour at the oil refinery. I never knew shipping gas 1900 more kms dropped the price by 20 percent. If thats the case why aren't we getting gas shipped from British Columbia?
