    ...is currently $2.29 at the station I frequent. 100LL is still $5.05 at my home 'drome.

    Take a guess which one I'm burning a LOT of these days!! :cool:

    I'd get a couple of 55 gallon drums of the stuff (not that that will last that long anyway!)

    I paid 2.99 last night for rec fuel, while my home drone is 4.75...I fly from my home drone with rec fuel, nearly every where else with 100LL...not so much for the savings (although I'm not complaining) but more because my spark plugs don't lead foul anymore, and because my plane starts so much easier in the winter.

    Sorting through my Grandaddy's affairs, as I help my Dad downsize. This business section article from March 2nd, 1969 caught my eye tonight after reading this thread:

    Paid $2.30 a few days ago for normal e10 93. My mom got 87 from Kroger for 83¢ with her points.

    Me too Tim. The 51 gallon tank I put in the back of my truck earlier this year oughta pay for itself real quick. Beats the sheet out of the 6 gas cans I was hauling around. I was paying $3 something for E0 last month and it was down to $2.30 when I filled the tank last week! 100LL is $4.70 at my home drone and over $5 at the Class D and C airports around here.

    Before purchase i figured id buy rec fuel, but now shes home, where im at its $0.60 difference, at 5 gallons an hour its not worth it... $3.00 hour savings... though i think when out n about Ill pop over to an airport with it to clean the plugs :)
