$37.01 for a half tank of 87 octane. Yep, I'm still feeling that one.

Last summer it took $50 even to put a full tank of 93 in the SSEi. Now I'm lucky to get out of the station for less than $65 on the 87 octane.

almost a 100 to fill the yukon, and 130 to 150 to fill the work truck with diesel fuel. i dont wonder why the prices of everything are going up with fuel so high

I'm tossing the idea of doing a project car and converting it over to compressed natural gas. Way cheaper then gas.

This weekend bought a motor mount, customer bought a trans line and some fluid/filter for the trans as well.

This week might be a big week. Gaskets/ hoses etc etc... for a big job.
