    That would be the smart thing to do but who would want to drive a camry over a x. I 'm getting ready to drive from GA to SA for school. I'll be heading out on Monday and taking my x on my first road trip with it other than going to ATL.

    Do you actually notice a difference when you put 94 in?

    I paid $3.81 this morning in San Francisco. $3.75 just 30 minutes away.
    Just when you think they were going down...they creep back up. Diesel is $4.09.

    sprouls, i cant say the difference is night and day or weather its just in my head but I feel it is better. when I first bought the truck i put regular (87) as thats what the manual calls for but after running my first tank at 94 the exhaust was black and left ricer marks on my lower flair. I did research and this was normal as it was cleaning out my engine and for that alone I run it and will continue to get bent over at the pump running it.

    I've switched from premium 92 to regular 87 and to tell you the truth haven't noticed any difference other than improvement in mileage.
    Prices will continue to rise, once Libya is done, there's still uncertainty in other middle eastern countries.
    We will be screwed if Saudi Arabia has a revolution , I think I'll start investing in oil, least that will offset the price difference.

    The average in Ontario is 1.20/ litre(87). Don't complain. Got the shaft last July when the HST came in with a 5% increase at the pump(5%/litre). They have a hand in one pocket and they shove it to us ( you know where.) Welcome to Ontario, 13% TX on everything you buy.
