Gasoline musings

April 11th, 2008 at 07:02 pm

The bad news: Gasoline is up to $3.06 in my little NJ town. Frown

The good news: I am consistantly getting 35 miles per gallon in my FIT.

I still have not inflated the tires past the original psi. I do need to check them. I went for my first oil change (free at the dealer where I bought the car), and noticed after I got home that their "checklist" says the tires are at 30psi. I find this strange since the door jamb lists 32psi as the recommended pressure for my vehicle, so wouldn't their mechanics know to inflate them to 32 when I was in for the oil change?

Anyway, I really need to keep improving the fuel economy because my funds are really tight with paying so much for the health insurance now. *sigh*

    $3.06? I think I last paid $3.75... I don't those mechanics would do more than they have to, especially if they aren't told

    Yes, NJ usually has some of the lowest prices in the nation for gas. I think it is because there are alot of refineries here so the gasoline does not have to be transported very far???

    I figured if I am at the dealer where that particular brand is sold and they did an "inspection" checklist they would at least make sure what they were checking off as "perfect" would match the recommendation on the vehicle spec. *rolling my eyes* Silly ol' me. Wink

    Gasoline is running in the $3.35 - $3.45 range around here. :-(
