what are you paying for gas???

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!

really gabe? i'm seeing consistent 1.45 1.55 1.65 (we on have 91 octane at the top here). that is pretty much everywhere within a 5 mile radius of my house in garden grove, /- maybe 3 cents.
 
eric, yea it varies. i noticed its always cheaper there in no. orange county. out here in chino and where i work (south o.c.) its always higher. i just gassed up in irvine tonite and paid friggin 1.78 for premium! i usually use regular, but i wanted to try it and i was almost empty. only bought 6 bucks worth :)

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..

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
