Re: My Car's New Trick

Gary & others,
Well most everyone knows CT. is not one of the top 10 places to live anymore. I am not surprised at the cost of this fuel since it's always been our normal. Back in 2002 when I bought my Fury Sunoco ethanol free gasoline was $8.00 at the pump for Sunoco at this same Fairfield station. What does surprise me is the low cost some of you have in other states. Here in CT. most of our fuel arrives by ship in the port of New Haven or Bridgeport. CT allows a destination charge from the port storage to the dealer, ie. mileage.
This morning I checked with Pure Fuel Gas Stations and they list 14 distributors of ethanol free gasoline. I checked each of the 14 stations and also learned that these gasoline also contains lead, which I did not know.
Happy Mother's Day fuel prices;
                                                                            Octane               Price per gal.

Living with our vintage cars and ethanol. Again I would like to see a conversion unit made with a reliable electric fuel pump to fit our 62-65 gas tanks making our cars as reliable as our daily drivers.

The price of that fuel seems beyond reason; have you asked the attendant if it is selling?  Octane degrades over time and I would think the fuel would not perform as advertised with RON/MON pump rating.

Mighty steep, but good ol' American capitalism at work!  Charge what the traffic will bear. 

Somebody must be buyin' it or the price would come down.

I would like to see someone come up with a modern electric fuel pump that would fit into out 62-65 fuel tanks as new cars have to deal with E10 fuel. Here in CT. my Sunoco station sells non-ethanol fuel at the pump, $15.00 per gallon.
