hardly a gas-guzzler, my Smart Car was getting about 35 average - just a little more than my Sonata. However, I too was tired of paying for premium. It was also getting more difficult in tying the kids to the top of the car with duct tape. :grin:

Well that depends on where you live. That ish adds up if you drive a lot like me! 2000 miles per month so far :(

Never had to use premium, never had a gas guzzler either though.

Back in 2004-2005 I was driving as much as 4000 miles a month. In 2005 we had the gas spike in NY, gas went up to $6/gallon!!! I was filling my Lexus GS400 3-4times a week @ $50 a fill up on premium...talk about expensive!

Still driving 2006 Chevrolet Equinox for 1 more month until my 2011 Sonata Limited W/Nav gets here. Never got better than 268 KM (166miles)to a tank so I can't wait. The way I see it my new Sonata will pay for itself in about 4 years.

The "premium gas only" in most luxury and sport vehicle is one big hoax. Most modern engines with computer controlled advance knock sensors and engine management can easily run on regular unleaded. Sure you get slightly lower MPG and a few less HP. But it absolutely doesn't do irrepairable engine damage.

In my wife's Navigator, with a 26 gallon tank, the difference between regular and premium 25-35 cents comes out to $8-9 per fillup. 2 fillups per week X 52 weeks is more than $900 a year!
It adds up, trust me I know.

some cars yes, some no....my two Acura Legends are chipped with air/fuel curves adjusted. If I don't run premium, it will knock like crazy. My wife's supercharged Monte only runs 1-2lbs of boost at most on anything less than 93 and I like 10+psi :D My 4runner SHOULD run on regular but has seemed to taking a liking to premium only lol

Looking to dump my Jeep Liberty at the end of its lease (~2 months left) which gets reliably 15-16 mpg city. Still looking at my options for replacement vehicle...
