    so let me make sure i have this right .... a $900 product that will alow me to run a fuel that costs about the same gas, so that my engine will get about 75% of the MPG that it gets now, and that same fuel will cut my engines life span in half??

    This is assuming we can come up with a cheaper way of producing it.

    There are so many problems with Ethanol. We'd be better off building coal burning stoves into the bellies of our cars to make steam.

    ha... I dunno about you but there's a 10 cent difference between E85 and 87 octane.

    Exactly what are you smoking where where can I find it?

    I still can't figure out why we still have to pay a "gas surcharge" on some of the items that get delivered.

    I have a feeling that surcharge will never go away.

    There is a gasoline refinery in North Pole. It is inline with the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline. Everyday the Alaska Railroad runs a trainload of tankers outta that thing several miles long (each tanker holds like 100,000 gallons and is about 40-50 feet long, do the math) I PAY 2.89 FOR GAS! WTF! WE MAKE THE SHIT NOT 20 MILES FROM MY HOUSE!

    yup companies added the increased cost for delivery and even when gas goes down, the added charge wont go away. but i really cant complain. i benefit from it. i used to get 1.00 for every delivery i took. then it went up to 1.25 wen gas jumped up. well now gas went back down and im still getting 1.25 :)

    No they pump it 20 miles from your house, it still has to be refined.

    Wrong. It's a refinery that produces gasoline, diesel and kerosene jet fuel for the Air Force Base. Alaska supplies oil to most of Western America, Hawaii and Japan. Why do they pay less for it than we do?

    Jersey gas is cheap because it has the lowest tax, in the nation, on its gas. The area is just so densely populated that they make up for the lower tax in quantity and also other forms of being tax voltures.

    buncha whores.

    I want to pump my own gas. Gas would be cheaper, and I wouldn't have to wait for the high school drop out to fill the WRX with the wrong gas.

    Supply and demand.

    You're one of the five sole jabronis that live in Alaska and need gas.

    Say hi to the caribou for me.:p
