    im curious to know what the differences are in gas prices. dont forget to say where you are from.

    im in the los angeles area and the average prices ive seen are:

    1.55 regular
    1.65 for 89oct.
    1.75 super

    we have the wunderful clean air tax here, which is hidden in the price. how nice!

    yeah i fill up with premium every time because of this damn ZC..it's probably pointless but everyone recommended it so i figure it must be kinda helpful. but it's usually about $15 to fill it..

    ooh..check that..not the import scene..i guess the street racing scene is what i was after. my cousin used to race her civic over near deer valley and 35th av..she says that's where it's pretty hot..i haven't lived there in 6 years though..there wasn't much of a scene back then, just "nissans on lorenzos" man i hate those damn 10 inch rims..i never see them here..

    oh we have the trucks too. the lifted ones are usually driven by chicks, and the lowered ones are usually driven by guys. it's pretty wierd.

    well, it is not such a good idea to put anything less in a motor that is 10.4:1 stock, and i have a 1 ply head gasket in there, so i'm at around 10.8:1? it does make a difference on how it performs, it will eliminate knock ;)

    yes, higher octane will HELP eliminate knock, but you should only run the lowest octane that doesnt knock, unless you change your fuel maps to run higher
