Angry How about these gas prices!!

So yeah I got 10.8 gallons of gas this mourning on my way to work and spent $43!
Ive been stubborn for a while and refused to put more than 40 bucks a week in the car and now Im only gettin a lil more than 3/4 a tank for 43 bucks.

93 is running 4.05 here, well that was as of this mourning it probable went up 5 cents in the last 12 hrs.

How is everyone else doing on gas prices??

JDM ej205 swap.

Up here in VT it was 3.99 yesterday for 93. Don't feel bad, generally I am taking my truck to work and it costs a lot more then $43.00. That 6.0 on the chevy with 410 in the rear is not liking these gas prices. If it get's worse i am going to have to find a way to haul more stuff in the rex or trade here in for a small tacoma pickup truck and that would kill me. I love my car more then anything.

^I hope you're talking about selling the chevy for a toyota and not the subaru.

Was $3.92 for 93 octane in Omaha on Saturday.

E85 was only 3.19 here at the same time... It's tempting.

Yeah the wife drives the Escape and that thing sucks down like a pig. Everytime I get in it the gas light is on. She wants to trade it in and get a Tribeca.

Down here in Bloom we dont have very many places with 93 so I use 91, and it cost me 48 bucks every fill...once a week. Think its 3.70ish right now.

I need the chevy to move my tractor to sites among other things. yeah thought of trading Rex for Tacoma but I can't do it. Going to get a large job box and leave tools onside so I can run the Rex daily with gas the way it is.

Now that 93 has crossed $4/gal I've actually been tempted to tune the 6 for an 87 octane eco map, there are a few on the forums that have hit over 40mpg hwy

I talked my mom into getting a Tribeca and I just want to throw it out there that I doubt it will really do any better than the Escape. She drives like, well, an old lady, because she is one, and she gets around 20 on the highway is all. I can't imagine the Escape is worse. When I drive her Tribeca (twice) I get around 17 highway. Granted, I go 80 on the freeway...

I live in Canada and prices are getting dumb. I put $20 in tonight to go to a meet and I only got a 1/4 tank. thankfully my work is near by and I like to ride my bike. or else I'd be seriously broke.

You WILL get knock... Matt, are you on mazdaspeedforums.org ?

Anyways, It's 3.99 here for 93. This blows.

I troll msf.org but I've seen it done a few times with no knock, basically it'll run normally under normal load conditions but on the highway it will lean out and timing will ramp up, ohh and on this map the car would only be on WG boost.

Negative, from what I saw there is no OS for the MSI engines yet and I will never buy Cobb.

I sent my ECU to cP-e for the full control flash and I ordered their Standback2 and PnP harness, it allows you to actually tune for a VTA BOV by shutting off the injectors between shifts, and it allows FFS and LC combined with the full control flash which gives the driver full throttle control instead of the ECU interfering with the Drive by Wire.
