    This was in the suburbs, it's even more in the city. I'm pretty sure Chicago has the highest gas prices in the country right now.

    Damn gas just when down here... Regular hit 3.95 two days ago but last night I saw it for 3.84. It's ridiculous.

    I think the City of Chicago has been leading the nation for the last couple of years.

    Plus the infamous summer blend forumla hit the market at the beginning of the month, and they usually take that opportunity to knock the price up another 10 cents a gallon in the Chicago area.

    Gas Buddy currently showing $4.70-$4.80 for premium in the O'Hare / Chicao city area. DuPage county (due west of Chicago, lower taxes) looks to be around $4.55-$4.70. And northwest Indiana (a.k.a., far south suburbs) runs $4.30-$4.50. Typical spread.

    Yep. Our local news radio has a weekly gas price report and Chicago is consistently on top. Maybe logistics in getting fuel there?

    It's expensive in the city because of the city tax for one. But there's a pretty big refinery here. So I don't know. It's a dubious honor being number one.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    1500 hours. Finally got around to finishing the install of the EBC slotted rotors and Redstuff pads. Been sitting in the shop for a year. Piece of cake..........only two busted knuckles. BUT know that the inititial bedding in will rattle your fillings - drove 80 miles a while ago with gradual stops to 0 from 30 to 90. First hour was literally WTF !!! Severe front brake judder from 40 to 5 mph at a moderate slowdown......Last half hour was "Well, this is looking better........." Barring rain, will do another 100 miles tomorrow. Even so, the EBC setup brings the car to a stop A LOT faster than the stock brakes. ........and I can tell that, when the bedding-in is complete, these brakes will be velvet-smooth. Engaged ABS one time - guaranteed these brakes will put your face through the windshield............

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Rather than putz behind three slowpokes on 99W driving home tonight, I detoured onto the old highway alignment:



    The road is narrow, poorly maintained and has several sweeping turns, plus a couple of tight ones. There were no other cars on the road, so I was pushing the Seville fairly hard. Met back up with them where I crossed 99W to head home. Had a much better time than if I had stayed behind them all that way.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    ^It must be brakes month or something. I've done 3 sets already and have another to do on Sunday. Thats a nice set. I've always wondered if they made a justifiable difference w/o upgrading the calipers. Surprisingly Summit carries a few cross drilled and slotted sets for my 21 year old Cad.


    First time brake job on the 42 year old Ferd:



    Man they dont make em like they used to. This sh*t is huge! Raybestos Service Grade - Biggest pad set ever:



    They're a nifty "floating caliper" design - only the slide bolts hold them on. Much easier to do than I expected, save for those goofy retaining clips... Damn piston boots are dry rotted Will have to keep an eye on that....



    Oh joyousness! Thy center cap hath arrived! This pleases thee.



    This is the wheel that got away from me as described in the Automotive Bafoonery thread. I walked up and down the road looking for that thing and never found it. Missing center caps are so white trash. (but mis-matched lugnuts are negligible.)



    HOLY GIANT BRAKE DRUM BATMAN




    This acquisition of this center cap has restored the natural balance of the universe. You're welcome.

    That is one of my biggest complaints with the Seville line... the brakes are terrible. The pedal just has no feel and there is very little bite. Maybe next time I'll invest in better rotors and pads.
