Speaking of gas, did you guys see Esso is opening Mobil stations in Canada? There are billboards in, and around, Montreal.

You'll save more money annually if you stop buying starbucks, cigarettes or liquor.
I figure if i buy 100L, I'll save $10,and less trips to the gas station... The boxster gets about 10L/100km, the motorcycle about 5.3L/100km

I've been bringing coffee in a thermos to work for the past 23 yrs.... so I got that covered...
last had a cigarette about 5 yrs ago, drink very little, and buy booze in the states when I'm down there.

Not really worth it in my opinion for me. I currently am getting between $0.08-$0.10 off/ L at Cdn Tire gas bars....

If I had more jerry cans with me, then it might be worth it. I've been filling up my motorcycle from home with jerry cans and a jiggy tube.

Interestingly, people seem to have a problem figuring out which side their gas filler is on on their vehicle... notice a lot of people pick lines opposite to where there filler is.

I get gas at The Queensway Costco when the line is fairly short. Last week I was in line there was a Vespa in front of me. I guess she saved .10 cents on her fill up.

They seem to be offering Esso gas anyways.

Now, if they were to offer 0% Ethanol 93 octane...I would be all over that.

What we really need in Ontario is Chevron.

I really don't see the point , same gas station different name .

Is it all just about branding ?
