late 80'* civics are known for being able to do that, and they are dirt cheap too.

I always find it amusing to see people in the U.*. complain about gas prices. Last night on my way home I paid 102.1/L for regular 89 octane
that comes up to about 3,85$ a gallon, so supreme was sitting at about 4,47 a gallon. I am sure glad now that I started going back to 89 octane. I used to only run supreme in my Malibu to try and keep it running in top shape for longer with all the driving I do, but with these prices I went back to regular a few months ago.

I noticed a big difference in gas mileage on it, I get way better mileage with it.
