right, the batf license.

live in pr, that's why the latin american model multifuel engine, too bad most of the sugarcane production here has gone down the tubes, otherwise building a still might really be a good idea with current gas prices.

and before you saywell don't drive an suv then, well, the roads here are so bad that the only way to avoid frequent repairs /is/ to drive an suv. bad roads in this case meaning waterfilled potholes bigt enough that i managed to get a ford explorer stuck in one. on a public, paved road. un-frickin-believable.

I buy where they have the cheapest gas and that is almost always Wal-Mart

in Tx.  Get .03 per gal off when you use a gift card from WM.  I drive a Merc.

Grand Marquis and the book says 87 oct. and that is what I use.  I get

24mpg at 80mph and lots of comfort also.  All this BS about higher oct.

being better for your eng. is a crock, use what your owners manual calls for

and save yourself some money.  I could go on and on about how the Oil Co's

screw us, but I have neither the time nor the space.  :haha: :haha: :haha:

well, the higher octane being better is relative. i know that in my ford explorer 4.o v6 multifuel i cannot use higher than 87 because that actually causes a loss of power, the engine being set up for just that due to the multifuel. some engines don't much care what they get, even most engines reccing premium will run on regular, they will adjust the spark timing etc. for the fuel, but with a loss of power. a few engines however will note the increased octane of higher qual fuel (in most cases turbos or supercharged engines, since they can actually influence the comnpression ratio by adjusting the boost) and gain power. but those are few and far between, and if you own one of those, you don't care about gas prices anyhow.

mobil all the way.

Less water added. :D

sorry to say but they had a few years ago a national gas test ' there was not much differnce between regular unleaded or premium unleaded and between one company to another... the only difference was the price and the company name...... mobil,texaco etc...........
