Yeah... I went to visit friends in PA last week, spent $75 for one fill-up of 21 gal!

Truck rode well, though. Once I got east of Zanesville, I had to go with Tow-Haul Mode. 5th gear was pretty much useless in the bigger hills, and the truck was nearly empty. Avg. mpg was 17. The trip confuser seems to be pretty accurate in my truck.

2007 1500 SLT 4x4. 2-dr, short bed; 4.7l; 3.55 w/LSD.
SC 87 tune; 4" pvc intake; Magnaflow Y-pipe and muffler; Scangauge... oh, and new speakers!

Yall's gas is expensive! It's right at $3 a gallon for the cheap stuff. Even 89 octane, 100% no ethanol is only about $3.25.

But it still sucks filling these trucks from E. I try to fill mine up around a 1/2 tank, doesn't sting as bad!

You think that's bad take a trip north of the 49th. The pumps here are at 1.09/liter which works out to 4.15/gallon, and that's for 87 octane. 4.53/gallon right now for those of us running premium. And that's the lowest it's been in a very long time.

Here in Dayton, OH reg. is about $3.23 for 87. In PA it was $3.59! Diesel was right around the $4.00 mark. The gas prices in OH change on a daily basis though, while my buddy said the PA prices have been pretty stable, but high.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it CHEAPER to produce Diesel than gasoline?

Once upon a time. Then the EPA stepped in and said that American made diesel has to be made and match the diesel that's made in the UK because we sell so much diesel fuel over-seas. So, that means no sulfur and very low paraffin in the fuel. This really screwed things up because the sulfur was the lubrication in the fuel, as well as, helping with the CETANE (octane) rating. So the sulfur has to striped out and then a whole batch of chemicals have to be added to replace the properties of the sulfur. Once upon a time, diesel was almost nothing but a byproduct of making gasoline and really helped the profits of the oil companies. So just like everything else the government touches, it double or triples the cost of making it and cost us more money. With no sulfur in the fuel, your older diesel has to updated (lots of money) to run the new fuel.

... OK, rate over.

If you start a thread, be responsible and post the final outcome.

I fill up at the 1/4 tank mark and last week I let it fall to around the 1/8 and it was the first time in months that it didn't go over $80. It is around $3.70 here for 91 and over the summer it was almost a dollar more. I got tired of having to hit the $100 limit so I fill up earlier so I can at least know I have a full tank.

ouch! haha

my truck takes $75 a week and that isn't even filling it up. I think $110 fills it all the way up.

My diesel, at $4.15 a gallon, I'd see $130-150 tanks.

Just think what the big rig guys are feeling. Try filling 200 gallons.
