How much is it costing you to fill up your JK

How much is it running you guys for a full tank when the gas light is on and a half tank ?? do you use regular or premium and why

Let's see the lowest gas prices too! Here in NY I have 2.34 a gallon at my lowest now

I run premium as its tuned for 91 octane and paying 96.9 per liter (Canada) usually costs around $50 to fill as I never run it low enough to get the fuel light to turn on.

There is already a thread running for gas prices. As for gas grade there is no advantage to using premium unless to have a CAI and tune which requires it...and or supercharger perhaps.

Less each day.

The light on both my JKs doesn't come on until it's 1/8 to go.

I am paying $2.50 which is considered low here in California.

Filled it from below a 1/4 of a tank yesterday. (About 75 miles remaining according to EVIC) was $33.50. $1.94 a gallon in NJ and there's cheaper than that out there.

Yeah, no gas taxes apparently.

I bought gas last night for 2.79 in California.

Sad....Cali prices matched with Michigan prices. For some reason we always have some of the higher prices compared to surrounding states.....stupid.
