    Still pays for me to drive the Touareg at 14 cents per mile vs the Nissan at 22 cents per mile.

    Are you even driving the Frontier anymore? Or the Lexus, for that matter?

    I drive the Frontier here in our little village 4-5 mile RTs. The Lexus I try to take out once a month for a run to town to keep the battery charged up. It got used by family this Summer. Last time I drove the LS400 was August 21st to get smog test for license. Still has less than 107k miles. The Sequoia sat in the garage and was only used for trips. Just was not as much fun to drive as the Touareg.

    That should not have any impact on RUG. It is a LPG line which does not present any environmental problems. It did prompt me to call my propane dealer and get my tank filled before they raise the price for winter. Best price for Propane here is $2.90 per GGE.

    Wanna bet? :shades:

    $3.26 yesterday, $3.29 today.

    Anyone else seeing a jump, even a small one like here?

    The last movement I saw at our local station was from $3.039 to $3.029. So, no jump yet.

    I filled up yesterday at the HEB. 87 octane was 2.86, 93 octane was 3.18, a 32 cent per gallon price spread. I think the days of 20 cents difference from 87 to 93 octane are gone.

    No diesel at that station, across the street diesel was $3.69.

    I saw one sign last week for $2.69, but didn't need gas at that time.

    This is in Houston.

    I filled up the wife's CX-7 yesterday. Noticed that the spread between grades is no longer $.10. Was $.14 between 85 and 87, and $.18 between 87 and 91. With RUG at $3.099, that meant I paid $3.419 for the tank of Shell V-power.

    Interestingly the best price on diesel is at Union 76 stations in my area.
    ULSD $3.79
    RUG $3.47
    Mid $3.57
    PUG $3.67

    There are a few indies with same price as Costco at $3.45 for RUG.
    RUG will have to get a lot cheaper around here to be a good choice for SUV & PU Drivers.

    Driving the fintail to LA, that would be fun.

    I saw gas in Vegas down to around 3.11, I ended up paying 3.25 at a Chevron near the airport.

    Paid 3.59 for Chevron premium for the old car today, noticed diesel was 3.99. When I bought the new car, diesel was less than premium. Supply and demand, free markets, capitalism, easter bunny, leprechauns, something is at work here.

    I also noticed that ARCO diesel was 4.13, and Safeway diesel was similar, yikes.

    Cheapest RUG in the county is $3.45. Cheapest diesel is $3.85. I am guessing it will all go down after Thanksgiving.

    $2.999 for RUG at the local grocery store station here in CO. $3.049 RUG at Shell.

    Hope you had a very happy holiday (and the rest of the board)

    More and more I'm thinking about it; not in the market for any vehicle for the foreseeable future. I am keeping my eye on the Jeep diesels; since I'm under the Fiat umbrella now I can get a decent discount on one. As well as keeping an eye on the VW Group of products. I'm just a glutton for torque.

    Anyway we had to normal 30 cent jump for Thanksgving but I actually found a Shell / Circle K with petrol for $3.26 for 87 octane that night. And not my usual stations but in the near SW burbs. I don't think we'll go back to the $3.03 from a few weeks back but here's hoping.
  • Stever@EdmundsStever@Edmunds YooperlandPosts: 38,979
    Thanks! Kind of slow with the boards being down.

    This "Fiat" caught my eye this morning (have glanced at it before but didn't think it would ever come this way). Bet they lose the manual transmissions en route though.

    Yes, this is a fingers-crossed for me. Can't really talk about it but with, I guess, finally acknowledgement at the upper levels that there is a need / want for a smaller van for smaller businesses, i.e. the popularity & versatility of the Transit, there's a pent up demand for that vehicle.

    I mean, people with small businesses were looking for this type of van for decades. That's one of the reasons the old GM B-Body wagons, along with the full-size Fords, were so popular; they pulled double duty as family haulers and as just plain haulers. As the mini-vans became more popular they got larger but interior-wise you couldn't haul anything, especially 4 X 8 sheets. So when the PT Cruiser and the HHR (particularly the "panel" version) spurred interest in a small hauler, the Sprinter (a la Chrysler-Damlier-Freightliner) finally came through and took a decent hold, along with the rest. I really took a look at the Transit overseas as well as here and it is a VERY configurable little bugger. So figure having something that size but being able to haul the mail it can be a winner for sure.

    Anyway, was back in MI and through Indy along I-80/94 petrol was $3.09 with diesel between $3.77 - $3.89. Closer to MI prices crept up to $3.12 for 87 octane, diesel same as Indy.

    As an aside, I got my 1st in-the-flesh look at an F-Type; it looks great in mags but in person, it REALLY looks great. You can see the E-Type influence but the F-Type stands on its own. That would definitely be in the car barn if I win the Mega-Millions.
