    How are the fuel prices where you live?

    In Australia we pay way too much compared to the US yet a lot of Americans think their fuel prices are high but in camparison to us you guys are paying a lot cheaper prices than we do at the pump. Here in Australia it is not uncommon for us to paying up to $1.70 per litre which is around $6.80 per gallon. What are your prices like in your area and do you think it is too expensive?

    By any chance does your fuel give you that which you desire?

      Currently $2.49/gallon for 87 octane unleaded gasoline. It tends to be cheaper in my locale though. California may be closer to $4.00/gallon, I hears this on the news channel just the other day.

      I have noticed that what is available in other countries is sometimes not the fuel being sold here.

      On a car enthusiast forum, I recently noted someone from Australia or New Zealand said their octane rating was much better in their fuel, and the only bs fuel being sold there was E-10, and hardly anyone uses it. Someone from there hopefully will update on this, as this was maybe 2 or 3 years ago. Before the Plandemic.

        People are starting to use E:10 here more often because a few cents cheaper so everything helps even if it's just a few cents.

          Has anyone there noticed any difference in gas mileage with it?

          We have E:85 and E:10 as well as 87, 89 and 93 octane.

          I noticed E:85 the gas mileage drops quite a bit. Haven't seen E:10 locally. My car doesn't run well on anything lower than 91 so my gas visits are more pricey.

          If I'm going into, say Indianapolis I use 93, and additive. My car isn't fast and without that kind of fuel it's dangerous to drive my car there. Lol

          I have to drive it like I stole it, when I'm there. Many there have higher end cars that have three times the horsepower mine does. This is why I'm rushing getting my V8 Ranger done. Lol

                We have unleaded E-10 which is 10 per cent ethanol, we also have different grades of unleaded petrol 91,95.98 being the best of the lot and we also have diesal and LPG gas as fuel.

                  I use BP ultimate in both my cars. It's 98 octane.
                  1 car has a turbo ls1 and the other is a Holden 308 stroked to 383. Both over 500 horsepower and the pump 98 is fine๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

                    I have an ls1 6.0 going into my 92 K1500. Gotta finish blasting the frame and put fresh rubber bisciuts in, and patch the cab.

                    using Dirty Dingo adjustable motor mounts

                        It's a four wheel drive Chevy full-size pickup.

                        The K prefix means 4X4, those w/ a C prefix are 2WD

                        They come in standard cab, extended cab, and shortbed (6ft long) or longbed (8ft. long)

                        The shortbeds can be fleetside (straight down the sides), or stepside, which look sportier but not much room in the bed.

                          Used to love the older boxier stepsides from movies. Think there was a movie called the Driver and he has one from memory

                          Are you talking about the movie that stars Ryan O'neal as the driver?
