Thanks. Seemed appropriate at the time.......kinda funny too.

Words aren't children and there's nothing wrong with killing them to clarify a point or keep the peace.

OK, OK already. No more premium for Candy...though, at $2.11 a gallon, you'd think regular unleaded WAS premium plus gasoline!!!

I just got gas today for $1.92 a gallon for regular unleaded (87 octane). Lowest it has been for awhile. This is the first time checking gas mileage since changing the front sprocket to the 18 tooth. I have been using the trip odometer to gauge when to get gas, before the 18 tooth i had to switch to reserve anywhere from 115-125 miles, but never even took 3 gallons. Today hit 119 miles, took 2.4 gallons =49.58 mpg. I may have filled it a little fuller than last time, so actual mpg is probably over 50...not bad!

Yea'll RW the best I've gotten was 52 after the sprocket change. You do have to watch your speed ,it seems that going by listening to the motor rpm's like before you end up going about 10 mph faster than before, It does to me anyways.

The highest I recall seeing it here was $2.35 about 2 weeks ago, then between $2.10- $2.19, till now, saw several stations at $1.99, i need to go back & fill the truck where I bought it today for $1.92, tho that will still cost me about $50.00, and I'm not on empty.

I always put premium in mine, with such a small gas tank it's hard to tell the difference... hopefully there may be long term benefits to this treatment.

Ya I went back to putting premium in my bike also. I get to much engine knocking when the bike is warming up with regular gas.
