#697 of 795 $4.00/gal is back...

around these parts, at least if you want premium. My Ram takes 89, which is usually priced closer to Premium anyway, so I'll try not to let it get below half a tank, and alternate between 87 and 93 when I fill up.
Today was 87 day, so it was "only" $3.599 per gallon. I didn't notice if 93 was over $4/gal at this station, but I have seen it at others.

Filled the Sequoia first time since October. Costco fill price in 10/17/12 $4.39, price at Costco today $3.93. It spends most of the time in the garage with the old LS400.

"SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Gasoline prices at the pump have climbed every day for the past 21 days — and they’re not going to let up anytime soon.
On Thursday, the average U.S. price for a gallon of regular gasoline stood at $3.555, making it the most expensive average ever for that day and the highest level since Oct. 26 of last year, according to AAA...."

Do you put Stabil in the tank? I've heard the ethanol goes bad in about 6 weeks.
That could ruin your day...

I don't even watch it anymore. Nothing I can do about it, and I'm going to fill anyway, so no sense in getting worked up over it.

I have not put any additives. I did just put 20 gallons in a 25 gallon tank. So most is fresh. It does sit a lot so I may put some in. I hate our CA crap gas anyway. I will be making my trips to the desert very soon so it will get some running time.

I have an F250 gasser I use as a "farm truck", and it only sees about 5-700 miles a year.
Fortunately, I can get 100% gas up here for that vehicle, so it lasts longer.

I think the only non ethanol gas you can buy is at the airport for small planes. Maybe down at the harbor as well. The sooner I get rid of our gas vehicles and go to diesel the better.

There's some near me; premium only but ethanol free. Not cheap though. Pure-gas.org has a list.
There's only 5 "pure gas" stations listed for California.

You got me curious so I tracked those five down up in Northern CA. The Northern Lights Energy are the distributors for Union 76 gas. The addresses are their tank farms. Renner seems to be a regional brand. Alaska is the only Free state in the Union. All stations sell REAL gas untainted with alcohol.
