    Here in Australia it's up over $1.20 a litre now, lucky I don't have a car right now, I wonder when it will stop going up.... maybe $2 a litre, $2.50... maybe time for one of those hybrid cars.

    It's all a ploy to make you buy hybrid cars. Freaking Al Gore is the man responsible for the high gas prices. I am going to buy some old beater motorcycle for the time being, maybe restore another triumph.

    Don't laugh...

    With the recent insane gas price hikes here the cops are complaining they are wasting tons of time responding to calls of gas theft (syphoning and LOTS of "gas and dash" at the service stations).

    There is so much "gas and dash" going on now that the big chains want to institute a "Pay first" policy.

    Though I miss my Bronco (and I mean I REALLY miss it a lot!), I smile every time I gas up my little shitbox chevy Cavalier....

    A Cavalier is about as small as I am willing to go to save gas.

    I saw on a web site that everyone in the nation is going to try and not buy any gas or gas product the first full week of Oct. If we could spread this around the companies would lose billions a day. and maybe give us the upper hand in the price gouging

    There are alot of cars the require 93 from the factory...high compression motors and imports/euros do. My Benz does, i know Celica gts's do, any turbo or supercharged cars would need higher octane to prevent knocks....

    I've been planning on trading up to a denali but shit i'll need a daily civic or neon also

    Yes, I do have a turbo. Audi S...... no, A4 1.8t quattro. Borla exhaust, k04 upgrade, Baily diverter valve, tuning provided by www.tap1.com . Peaks 22 pounds of boost and although i've never dyno'd with everything I should have 245 horse. It's a quick and light car, and quattro kicks ass!
