£1.33 a litre here in the UK, so €1.57 if it was in Europe

£6.03 a gallon = $9.78 gallon, car takes approx 16.5 gallons. Yeah its very expensive in Europe and especially the UK

1. Air Meter - flap-door-contraption
2. CHTs - cyl head temp
3. OT - oil temp
4. 02 sensor
The diagnostic system has been bullet proof for detecting bad components on problems I have encountered on my car and on others I have helped out. Have you read the codes?

Well, I'm old enough to remember a $0.13/gallon gas war in the 60's in West Texas, heart of US oil production before our government stopped us from drilling and made us totally reliant on places like Iraq, Egypt and Libya. I'm guessing $5.00/gallon by the end of the summer. It will make for a polarizing campaign season.

Mine routinely gets 26 mpg (U.S.) with highway usage (70-80 mph) and that's with 10% ethanol in all U.S. gasoline in my part of the world these days. Prior to the introduction of ethanol, I would routinely get 28 mpg. Around town, somewhere in the low 20s.

Just a bit of trivia: more than half the gas comsumed in the US, comes from Canada, and if you need more, we have lots, something the average American have no knowledge of.
