Get on that costco gas life. Should be around 90c-$1 cheaper per gallon
If only it wasn’t 30 min away from me, but good point…. It’s literally THE cheapest around

I pretty much have costco just for the gas alone, but we are like 2 blocks from it so super convenient to stop by. Long lines, but way cheaper, and 0% chance of getting talked to by tweakers like every other gas station in the world it seems.

Was just excited. Getting good at blindly mixing E40.

I bought 2 ea 30 gallon tanks of E98 to add to my E10 94Octane. I was getting 400 kms a tank on E25-E40. I was commuting 120 kms a day. I was hypermiling for nearly half of those tanks so that I could land at a 94 Octane station and be close enough to empty that my pre-measured gas cans of E98 would equal my desired ethanol content.

It seemed less prone to the consequences of heat soak.... but.... I was commuting and driving more like a vagina more often because I was trying to get more distance.

I liked it, but in hindsight- a waste of time and ultimately money for my situation. If I could get 100 octane E40 at a pump at the gas station, I'd do it without blinking- but mixing sort of sucked. It was something else to worry about.
