The Hog's Mileage Report - just for Blair

So I've now put on 285 kms since hibernation.

Been playing nice and staying out of boost while the old gas is burned off.

Filled her up today with the good stuff ( 94+ @ 136.9 per litre).

That was $95.00 for 69 litres. That's the most I have ever spent putting gas in the hog.

Stay tuned for next week's mileage report - right here - same time, same channel.

Just drive it pussy. you know you will pass it down and get something way more worthy of being a Garage Queen.
10mpg never hurt no one.

i switched away from the 94octane. i wasnt a fan of the 15%? ethanol
i went ot the vpower 91 has zero ethanol and truck seems to like it better.

i filled up the other day from below a 1/4 and it hit the 100$ limit for pay at the pump before it was full.



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.

It's only 10% ethanol and that's what I have it tuned for. I may get a retune this summer at HP Solutions.

I've started to use the cheap Safeway gas just cause I can get a 5 cent off per litre discount when I buy groceries. With a 36 gallon tank every bit helps.

So here we are 11 days and 210 kms later...


Price is $142.9 for the 94.

Filled up (51 litres) and it was $73.00

That's almost 35¢ per km just for the gas.

and that's with the Alberta advantage...

Venezuela nationalized the oil companies and is using government subsidies to keep gas prices low in order to appease the population.

Most people are dirt poor there, so they get cheap gas so they don't burn the place to the ground.
