Premium really isn't that bad. I live in Michigan, which is the double-edged sword of pump gas--you can get any grade from 86 to 94 (a station one mile away from me has race gas at the pump!) . . . but it costs a ton. Just filled up with Sunoco 94 at $2.30 a gallon; the 87 octane was still $2.03. That's a difference of 27 cents, times 11 gallons (in my Sunfire), for total difference of $2.97. Since I moonlight delivering pizzas, I have to fill up weekly. That's 52 times $2.97 = $154.44, or less than a tenth of what I pay in insurance--and that's the difference between 87 and 94! Personally, it's just a matter of protecting my investment-or, in the case of my Sunfire, my father's investment (looooooong story).

Yes any gas station, as long as you pay at the pump with your credit card.
Arco is the only gas station that doesn't accept credit card at the pump.
How to feel better for me is to know that my RX8 gets the best mpg out of all my cars. It beats a Sequoia, and since I added Stage 1.1 now it gets around 25mpg, with some hard driving in there, while my highlander v4 gets 24 mpg.

my car gets great gas mileage and i've cut my refill to only like once a month. all i had to do was get this little plastic pump that i attach to my neighbor's cars. ever since i've installed this mod my 8 has rarely been empty on gas. my neighbor however reports that his cars have been mysteriously eating up great quantities of gas over night.

Not that good actually. I guess too much refining has moved out of state. Anywho NJ is between the high $1.90's to $2.10 for premium. Take .10 off for each grade. For the first time in a while, PA actually has prices competitive with NJ, so when I am PA, I fill up so I can control what the gas cap is hittin'.
