Since we are on this whole war mission and gas is getting out of hand high 2.00 a gallon has or does anyone run medium or even regular in their cars non M's because I know the M's require premium but mine just says "unleaded fuel only" can I run a lower grade?:dunno:

The loss of power and fuel efficiency will negate any savings from running a lower octane.
Besides, a ten cent change in the price of gasoline is only about a $1.50 per tank. It's just not that big a deal.

In FL. 93 octane is 2.69 a gallon! Now Im gonna have to get a loan to pay for gas...or shift before 2000 rpm all the time....

Can't we find some of our own oil in this huge country of ours?

Of course we've got our own fossil fuels in Alaska, but we're being smart. Exhausting other countries' resources before dipping into ours ;)

EVERY E46 requires premium fuel. Read your owner's manual. Only the gas cap says "Unleaded fuel only".

You ain't doin' yerself any favors running that midgrade stuff.

That's an understatement:

according to research if we use the 600 million barrels of crude oil reserves we have in our country (in TEXAS and LOUISIANA, not alaska...that's the pipelines you are thinking about) , then we will last at most 90 days before empty....

90 days? shiiieeet....

as we are speaking of gas, does N 1 know where/which gas stations ( in the Bay Area SF CA ) do sell higher than 91 octane ?
- why there is no 93 oct. but everywhere so far is only 91 oct. ?
:dunno:

yea, screw these damn gas prices. But i do know where we can still get 91 for under 2 bucks. Right off the I5 at the bakersfield exit. I was just there this past weekend and was surprised that its only 1.93. It was like i found a pond of water in the desert. But now that im back in LA, i wish we would just bomb them already so we can take their gas
