Makes me smile of how much head-turning would be going on with that car there since it'* not normal to them.

That'* neat that you guys in other countries like our cars

I'm also 1/4 swedish, too.

Yea, about the headturning. I was stopped by the "law" the just wanted to have a look at the Bonneville. They liked the belts that are mounted in the seats and the cool sound from the exhaust. I must add, that the "law" are not normally that nice over here. But it helps to have a unusual ride.
About the gas price. It is 13.00 Swedish krona for one liter. This will be about 8.00US$.

Thanks for all your input!!

Yep, 42 Kronor is 8 USD...

I know the gas is pretty hefty over here. Today I did try to fill the tank with 85% Etanol.
I had a Olds Alero a couple of years ago and that engine on did go pretty good on the Etanol. It is a little cheaper...

First off, welcome to Bonneville Club!

The car looks beautiful!

As far as the fuel, you best just bend over. Without proper tuning that car is not meant to take anything less than 91 octane here in the US, let alone E85, which may have been fine in the Alero, but in the supercharged engine it is only asking for trouble.

Well, why I did choose the Bonneville? Actually it was my wife that choose this one. She like the front, especially the fog lights... But it was a really good pick

About the E85, yea I know trouble maybe. But I just wanted to try at least mixing up 1/2 tank. By the way, the E85 over here is 102 octane so that is used by many turbo tuners.

But I should stick with 95 octane gasoline I guess.
