My opinion is always they exact opposite when ever I’m accelerating… My co-workers that did get the Turbo however have convinced me that the 10MPG improvement I see in gas mileage is only half the story, the other half is the 91+ octane they have to use… bsimon Gas prices are a small, nearly insignificant, part of the story when it comes to the total owning & operating costs for a vehicle. At $3/gallon, a 15 cent price hike represents only a 5% increase in fuel costs, but the media act like it represents some kind of dire economic impact. For people who drive a 20mpg car 12000 miles per year, 15 cents per gallon represents about $1.80 per week. Andrew I think I might go purchase another bottle of chain oil for my bike. Cheers! Matt W I quit my job in White Bear Lake and got two different part time jobs here in St Paul instead. Pretty much got rid of my gas costs. Now if only I could pay more attention to the parking regs here I might be able to enjoy those savings instead of donating them to St Paul. Lily I am a Public Employee and use my car for work. For many years I have not claimed mileage reimbursement. With rising gas prices I will need to start doing so.
