I need better weather so I can get SSExi back out. This 12 MPG with the truck is not making me happy.

It'll probably take you a couple of minutes to get to 60 but we're not talking about speed, we're talking about comfort.

Well nevermind, its about $2.67 a gallon here in places that do actually have it and i dont think it would be any cheaper by using e85 or gas.

e85 is such junk. Yeah its cheaper, but it also has less combustion power. You'll save 30% on the cost, but get 50% less fuel economy. I'm sure the numbers aren't that exact, but the general idea is that your drop in fuel economy is not worth the drop in price.

Not bad at all. I averaged 22.5 city/highway this past tank of gas.

It was 3.48 for premium with nitrogen the last time I checked here....I am not looking forward to the higher prices since the way that I get away from the stress of school work is driving the Bonneville around town or this part of the state.....cost roughly $40 to get 9.5 gallons if I remember right the last time I filled up...thankfully, if I keep my foot out of it, I have been getting around 22-23mpg in town....

Guys at me the same history and the price for gasoline grows in the country. 1.20$ for liter. In March I will establish system LPG in a car (4 generation). The price 0.5$ 1 liter LPG.
At me the second car such system economy 0.5$ is already established 1km drive. 2 yeаrs 40 000 LPG all good
