hey whats up everybody, i got a 95 seville sls. this morning i filled up @ the BP around my way (central va) and i noticed on my way to work i had a increase of 3.5 miles per gallon w/o the cruise control on (because it don't work). i usually go to chevron and fill up. i got 2 questions: does anybody know anything about BP new gas called "invigorate" and does driving with the air conditioner on have anything to do with gas mileage?????????

Do a Google or search in here for "top tier" gas. Quite a discussion of gasoline blending and GM recommended fuels. A/C, headlights, 2 or more people onboard, cargo, headwind/tailwind (yep....), any extra engine or alternator load will have a mild to considerable effect on gas mileage.

Driving without the A/C will certainly help. As will not using the cruise control. Invariably, I get better fuel economy (at least 10-20% sometimes) by not using cruise.

You probably had a tailwind. No gas is going to increase or decrease your mileage by 3.5.
