Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

Interesting. The implication is that in the 25 years from 1981 to 2006 we had almost 150% inflation and have been stagnant since. Not good.

What are the pump octane ratings in Canada & is leaded available ?
Well milk travels hundreds of miles by diesel. I do the grocery shopping for our family and everything at the supermarket is crazy expensive. This week's sale price is more than last week's regular price. I think everything at the grocery should be $5 each or per pound. It would all come out the same as today.

Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

Right now in Chicago proper it is averaging $4.70
In the burbs still in Cook County it is averaging $4.50
In the burbs not in Cook Count it is averaging $4.30

Yesterday I filled up with E85 to see what kind of mileage I would get to see if I would even break even. It was 3.66 per gallon and so far I have seen an average drop of around 4mpg. If I can break even or a little better I may stick with E85 to have one less person not as dependent on oil.

Just filled up my first tank (only made 440 klms) and I paid $1.23L for 89 octane here in Edmonton the place where all the oil comes from

Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

$90....because the pump cuts you off at $90 . 87 Oct is about $4.30 here. Funny thing is, I been filling my car up with 100 Oct race gas lately, it's only a little more than the 91, funny how they don't touch that price.

Thats exactly what I paid for my last E85 fill up. I lost about 2.5 to 3 MPG over regular on same commute cycle. E85 really doesnt like acceleration - constant state it gets close to regular fuel but every time I put the hammer down the fuel economy bar heads real close to Zero. My first e85 tank was about 16 MPG got 16.6 second tank. My third tank is looking better trip computer which has been almost spot on for last two tanks is reading 18.1 after 200 miles on same commute. I was getting high 18 to 19 with regular gas but not trying to be overly fuel effcient like I am now. But 18 for my commute is very good as its over a mountain and into stop and go traffic. SOmetimes I dont get the down hill benefit as I hit traffic.

As Gas prices go up the percent variance with regular fuel goes up making e85 more cost effective so we do have some relief when prices head to $5 a gallon.
