This guy may be onto something. Definitely interesting how he got it to work.

And this shows high octane doesn't matter unless you are boosted or running high compression over 12:1.

Crazy!

Gas prices up to $4.50 here in New Hampshire.
Spending time with my grandkids gets in the way of finishing my car but I don't regret it!

That is 25 cents cheaper than here.  And it is more in Carson City & Reno.  :(

I see on the chart that only Hawaii & California are higher than Nevada. The Dems passed a law here that if the Feds suspend the federal fuel taxes Nevada automatically adds that back through state taxes. Many people in this area and work in Carson, Reno, & Tahoe because they can not afford to live where they work. A lot drive more than 100 miles a day & more, some to the Tesla Mega-factory. A lot of them work in the "service" industry, casinos, motels, restaurants......that pay poorly. A large number are finding they can not afford to drive to work. There are very few if any charging stations here. People drive older cars because that is what they can afford, lots of 4x4 pickups because that is what they need. Registration & insurance is high.

EDNY, Here we now get taxed at the pump & by the mile. We have to report the milage on our vehicles each year when we register them and we can get a rebate from what we pay at the pump if that exceeds the milage rate.  ???

My wife & I up dated our voter registration yesterday, me from independent she from Dem to Republican. We had to stand in line to do it. The stick figure chart that Elan Musk drew tells it all only his only went back to 2008.

I was looking for an old reciept for a cam, i ran across couple months of old fuel charge tickets from my last months in Mobil days. June 1978 and looks like our 100 octaine premium was right at .68 cents a gal😁 Looks like i was driving my '70 R/T, '69 Torino GT, '59 Elcamino and must have barrowed my little brothers '73 Charger.


Averaging out several months of fuel, around 8 gal a day in cruising/tire roasting. 🤯   Dang sure couldn't afford at todays prices.
