Not really a story to tell. But when prices look like this it is definitely cheaper to drive a Volkswagen! Gotta love the lil diesel.

Well, I have a two-part story from today, and one part is the opposite of most of these stories! So earlier today I ran to the gas station with my tdi, but to fill up a gas can for our lawn mower. So I parked by the gasoline pump (this station has separate gas/diesel pumps), and went inside to buy some stabilizer (it's a big gas can).

Now just for some context, my car is still decorated from an event that had happened, and my pump was right outside the clerk's window. Now while I was getting my stabilizer off the shelf, I hear the clerk asking this lady who was checking out about that car that's parked by the pump (my car).
She says something like, "I don't know whose it is, but I think that car takes diesel!"
The shelf with stabilizer was right by the door, so on her way out I was like oh you're talking about that car? She was like yeah, that Volkswagen, and she walks out.
I pay for my stabilizer, tell the cashier that it's my car, yes, it takes diesel, and I'm just here to fill a gas can. He says ok.

So I go back out to fill the gas can, and as I'm fiddling with the cap this guy comes up behind me and is like "Hey, you like your TDI?" and we get into a conversation. He has a PD year tdi with a manual and was saying how he has 200k miles and still gets 50 mpg.
It was my first random diesel bonding at a pump, so that was fun!

So yeah, in one fill up I had someone take note how I was parked by the gas pump with a diesel car, and some TDI bonding!

Got some funny looks from the UPS guy who was filling his cube van at the gas pump as I pulled in to the diesel pump in my little Golf.
$1.039 for diesel ($2.89USD/US gal)
$1.279 for RUG ($3.56USD/US gal)

WINNING!

Today I filled up just north of Sacramento at $2.55/gallon and when I was back in the Bay Area a few hours later the cheapest fuel I saw was $3.27 a gallon and the highest $4.49/gallon. The spread is just so great that I have stopped trying to make sense of it.

In Gridley, it is $2.45 at the Fastrip station, and $2.49 around the corner from me at the Feather Falls Rancheria Mini-mart.
