I don't get it.....
Diesel in our area is 5.29-5.49/ gal. (Norcal)
Two Chevron dealers 4 blocks apart.....5.29 and 4.89. I bought the 4.89...why such a difference? I don't get it.

Your post piqued my interest so I did some research. This is pretty much what I found out from our auto mechanics and on-line.

"The biggest consideration when buying gas is buying the octane rating your car was designed to use. Engines are tuned to operate with a particular octane level. Octane rating determines how well or efficiently the fuel ignites/burns. Lower octane the gas burns faster. Higher octane the gas burns slower. Engines designed to use high octane or premium are higher compression. If you use a lower rated octane fuel in a high compression engine, it will knock, and not perform as well. If you use a high octane fuel in a lower compression engine you are wasting your money. The first consideration is buy the fuel octane rating your car was designed to use."

So, I guess I should have purchased a lower compression engine in the first place....who knew gas was going to go so high? Thanks, paula

Connecticut diesel is again 4.999. Worse is that it's all the junk VLS stuff so I have to buy additive on top of it.

Talked to a mechanic today, replacing alot of fuel pumps because of gasket issues.
