MBCClassboy - you are right.. however lots of people panic at the sight of the pump prices and start cutting corners wherever they can without really thinking. Everytime I am gassing up and I see another Mercedes owner 9 out of 10 times they are using regular fuel! even on NEW E350's or even S550's! i just want to go right up to them and slap the back of their heads! I commute 70 miles a day so I now ride a VFR800 while my babies are garaged safe and sound for the weekends..

Thanks for the support Redwood. Actually after I wrote that I thought I may have been a little blunt but that doesn't change my mind. I travel 76 miles round trip to work and I never even considered anything but the best I can get. I also own a fully restored '73 911 that is wound up like a clock. Burns nothing but Sunoco 94 and on a good day gets 18mpg. I drive it to work everyday it doesn't rain ('73's were not galvanized). In my mind it is just the cost of ownership.

Take care,
Greg
