I usually put 60 litres (16 gallons) in on tank-ups and it costs me $50 CAD. So thats $3.13 CAD which is $2.58 USD. And thats the lowest octane as well.

So...$2.58/gallon @ 87 (I think thats the lowest octane commonly found at gas stations?)

I think I beat all of you for being raped at the pumps...

99.6 cents a litre, 34 litres (half tank) = 33.86

converted to American dollars is 27.86
double that for a full tank 55.72
divde that by 18 gallons

3.09 a gallon, now that'* BS

I feel sorry for the Europeans though, they pay double that easy

I'd love premium at $1.99/gallon. We're at $2.30/gallon here so quit your whining!
