Gas Prices

So we all know gas prices are through the roof..and will just keep goin up. But i wanna know what kinda prices you have in your neck of the woods. Sure i could watch the news, but i'd rather hear from you guys lol. You can also post mpg, tips/tricks to improve, favorite gas stations etc. My tip/trick was to put it back to stock height/tires. Got me 4-5 mpg better lol.

Earlier today i filled my tank at $3.94 after Safeway 3 cents off. $70 flat.

Cheapest local price her is 4.02. Thats for 87 octane. I am getting about 20 highway stock. Maybe try a cold air intake and a good exhaust to let it breathe. That might help a bit.

Before any discounts or anything cheapest price around here is $3.96-.97. Thank god for Fred Meyer 3/10 cents off discounts lol.

I have a Flowmaster on it right now. I remember when my jeep was stock before, i put an intake on it. Not sure if i noticed a difference. My motors been beat to hell and back. I get around 16-17 right now and it works for me. I do need to do a good tuneup though here eventually. Plugs, wires, cap etc. Been a couple years.

14 gallon, I wasn't completely empty but my YJ is finicky with the gas, once it's midway to a quarter your lucky to make it to a gas station....to think i bought the 4 banger to get better mileage, everyone i know with the 4.0 gets much better.

I got about 90-100 on one tank of gas as opossed to my friends YJ with the 4.0 that gets about 150-200

3.79 by me. I just regeared to 4.88 and with my 33s and a corrected speedo I'm getting about 17-20ish, I'll get a better reading soon. I might get a 600 sport bike to help with gas other than that just gota suck it up not much you can do.
