    Same here. My truck seems to run better on regular. I do put premium in every seventh fill-up, but I get better gas mileage on regular.

    I just 54.9 for a full tank of gas here in gray at $3.05 a gallon. It really sucks cause i was paying like $47 for regular, but my dealer told me to use premium 'cause it started knocking, but Im going to switch back to regular, and only use premium every now and then.

    Paid $50 to get 3/4 of a tank here in CA. $2.95 per gallon for premium. Pisses me off though as the pump stopped at $50!! Couldn't even fill it up. Would have been a new record if I could have!

    Re: What's the most you have paid for gas?

    You guys should spare a thought for us Brits, we are now paying the equivalent of $7.65 per gallon!

    Thats bad enough when you drive little Mini but when your driving a 5.7 Escalade in the City it gets a bit crazy - it just cost me $150.00 to fill it up yesterday.

    Luckily i'm getting it converted to run on LPG (Propane) nexzt month - that'll cost $2.40 per gallon.

    Most I (we) have ever paid was the equivilent of $7.50 a gallon (about $1.99 a liter), in another country a few years ago. fortunatly the rental did very good mileage (too bad it was small and extremely uncomfortable)

    How many miles to the gallon will you get with propane?

    I lived in Switzerland for 3 years (96' - 99') and was paying about 5 dollars US back then.

    Apparently it'll do about 5% less miles and 5% less power - but for the saving i can live with that.

    To be honest having such a big lazy lump of an engine (5.7) i dont think it'll make that much difference any how.

    Overhere in the Netherlands it's €1,40 each liter, so approx. €5,30 each gallon. That will make $6.62 a gallon

    After 2.5 years of being a member here, and being the ONLY member from Sask. in that time, I will say welcome aboard!

    I wonder how much in Alb.

    Re: What's the most you have paid for gas?

    here in SoCal, premium gas at my 2 fave stations (Chevron {Supreme w/Techron} and Shell {V-power}) are about $3.05/gallon; the highest i have seen it all summer. my 97 Eldo is getting about 14 mpg; the CTS is a weekend driver now, and my hubby takes out the Escalade for work everyday <--- that's a lotta $ in the tank!
