$5 in our cars BARELY moves the needle, especially at $3.30 a gallon for 93. I just got $6 in there, drove to the store, floored it a few times, and it'* already gone.


I need to stop pushing the whine pedal so hard. :(

$3.60 for 92 here. Has been for a couple weeks.

I was going to calculate how much gas I burn when I give firends the 'woop-woop' whine as I drive past. I know the flowrate of my injectors and the time involved. I should be able to put a price on it.

~.02gal/10sec for me. Our injector sizes are close so you should be ~50% more.
