Oh, sweet irony.

It kicks the sands of the Nejd in our face.

^ Like I said, I drive a Subaru Legacy - for anyone that cares, it's an ancient 1998 GT-B with 276 four wheel drive ponies - but either New Zealand ponies are a lot less hungry than Swedish ones, or I don't drive like a complete retard, not sure which one it is...
Sorry, mate. I mixed up your posts. I meant to ask what ed629 drives. You wrote it earlier. But I can tell you this, the GT-B model has one of the hungriest engines even manufactured by subaru. And that's saying a lot.

And for the record, don't you dare call you 1998 Subaru ancient, laddy. My 1991 Merc has a lot of years left in it. And you're gonna hurt her feelings.

Btw, i have a hundred more ponies and its a cosworth engine. That explains the difference in fuel consumption.
Yeah that ought to do it! Really, when you drive a car as powerful as one of ours you shouldn't really complain about petrol prices. Still, I miss my 14km/L (33MPG) Nissan Bluebird when I look at my bank statements, she would run on the smell of an oily rag.

I guess I should be very happy with the 25 mpg. I'm getting with my 300 pony Camaro.

Nice, sounds like you're living the dream, an awesome car and good mileage!

My mate owns one of those. Its slightly older cause its still a Datsun. But those are some damn sturdy cars. They handle like a drunk elephant, but you cant kill em either.

Actually, I'm allowed to complain about the prices, what I'm not allows is to complain about the mileage. Cause that's completely on me.

You know, that car once had a 75bhp diesel engine. I'm told that the engine used to run on old deep frying oil. The stuff they fry french fries in at McDonalds. I didn't own the car back then, but my mate had it for years. His old man apparently has a thing for alternative fuels...

I think the first tank I used up after I bought it was deep frying oil, but I went to biodiesel afterwards.

Re: What are your gas prices?

Gas is in the $3.60 range for regular unleaded (E10) but I go out of my way to get Premium Non ethanol, and its running me about $3.95 a gallon. My car loves it, late model Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0(north star) v8, averages about 27 MPG @ 80 MPH on the road, about 20 in town.

Thankfully a 1996 Chevy Corsica isn't a gas guzzler and I don't make a lot of long trips.

Last time I loaded up, it was like $3.15 for unleaded. Western Colorado has some of the cheapest right now.

Closer to the source (Canada) and easier to transport perhaps.

Re: What are your gas prices?

I paid $4.20/gallon for biodiesel on Friday. Regular diesel is going for about $4.50 right now, and regular gasoline is going for $4.25. (SF Bay Area)

Re: What are your gas prices?

I'd hate to be driving a gas guzzler in Hawaii. Provided there are still any complete and utter idiots left in that state who have a vehicle that burns fuel like an F-15.
