Thats agreed.... I'll be working on the 92 Mitsubishi soon... New rear shocks, and possibly a timming kit... 2.0 SOHC 4 Cylinder, with the AC on in town I have done 29mpg with it... And 35mpg on the road... I think it may also be time for it to have an O2 as well... The 95 bonnie will be a day off driver for me the way the gas prices keep going..

In my area gas today (premium) has hit $2.60/gallon. The local Sam'* club had lines of cars about 100 yards long waiting to get gas because they had regular gas at $2.13. The gas station less than half a mile down the road from them was $2.45 for regular!

Its over a $1 a litre here now.

Over $4 a gallon, over $3.60 USD even with the conversion, when I left Michigan I needed 39L of gas, it cost me $24 dollars...CHEAP in comparision to us. What Americans think is expensive compared to what really is expensive is still a big wide gap....and you havent seen European prices...

There are things we pay for that you don't, or don't as much. Christ lets stop the whining.
I'm not gonna let mine get below 1/2, it'* cheaper to keep it topped off then wait a few weeks and fill.

I have seen europe prices, hell I seen them 7 years ago and they were a whole lot more expensive then we got it now.

How can we compare currencies from US and CAN? That dont work, different ways of life, different economy, different way of thinking. I dont see the logic in that at all.

Whose whining Zais?! I've never bitched about gas prices ever, I read/watch endlessly about US citizens in the news bitching and complaing about gas prices. So do we obviously, but I havent bitched about paying for gas.

I drive a V8 that needs premium gas, if I had a problem with paying for gas, I wouldnt drive a big V8 that needs premium gas

Josh, its vey easy to compare CAN vs USD, our dollar is almost equalized (mid 80c US = $1 CDN dollar), and we are quite similar in consumer and economic patterns. I simply stated its cheaper for fuel in the US then it is here...even after I converted my money.
