Hah!! Who notices how highway speeds trend down following an upspike in gas/fuel prices? It is so predictable. The SUVs have slowed for sure. We all have to be very satisfied with our investment in a TDI. No matter how high the price goes, my last tank yielded 51.7 mpg. We expect that to improve this week. DK

I noticed the value of my car went up like 2 grand in the last month or so.... But I am paying 2.96 a gallon. Any other vw I would drive would have running on premium which is like $3.20 a gallon now so I'd saying I'm doing decent.

With 658 miles on the previous tank, I filled up for $2.83/gal in Longview, TX on some Exxon low sulphur (according to the sign on the pump) just off the 20 a couple hours ago.

Hey DK, where did you get $2.84 from? Cheapest I could find in my town in Central MA, just east of Worcester, was 2.93. Please let me know as I would love to save the .09 cents!

thanks

The last tank was $2.49 (on 9 Apr) here in St. Louis. I still have 1/2 tank and I am on 445 miles. I will make the 600 mile club once again maybe even the 700 mile club if I wait to fill up. (I usually fill up at 1/4 tank.)

filled up the new golf at 2.899 yesterday in Glen Burnie, Md. Probably not the cheapest, but they're not too bad on price. And have best fuel in the neighborhood.
