I just filled my Super Beetle with the needle just touching the "R" and it came out to $45.00 ($1.49 per litre for 91 octane) OUCH!
I have chosen the route of retarding my timing and filling it with the regular. Not quite the power house im used.
I've often heard over the years that you'll increase your MPG's quite a bit if you run the air pressure in your tires high. The question then becomes ... is it worth the expense of your tires?
I would guess that shifting through the gears sooner and not taking off like a bat out of Herkimer would help too. Not sure if those gas additives do anything at all.
I remember filling my 57 Chevy for 15 cents a gallon back in the late 60's. Geez....I sound like my dad...guess I'm gettin' old!
