Since I dont live in town and I have lots of time on my hands, I have been working towards not having to pay $4 or more for gas. I started before it hit $4 the first time back in 08, and this year I wont buy any gasoline for my old cars. Since the GTO runs on E85 and my home brew, I plant to drive it more this year. Its going to be my daily driver, especially since the 98 Formula I used before will take more money to make it E85 compatible(injectors), and I cant do as much to get more mileage out of it at this point(compression).
So yeah high gas prices are going to keep me from driving my LS1 that was my economy car before, and my trucks are parked until winter as well. I just cant afford $4 gas, and here it is already $4.05 for 87, and going up again tomorrow. In 4 days I will have about 20 gallons of fuel ready, that will last me until I have the next batch done.
I honestly feel for you guys, everyone should be able to enjoy their GTO without having to take out a 2nd mortgage. I am not trying to be condescending, it pisses me off to no end that gas costs as much as it does, and how many of us are over there protecting it some the big companies can make money on our backs. I am learning how to do this so maybe in the future I can help everyone else run their high compression muscle car, Pontiac or otherwise, on fuel they made themselves, or had friends make with them.
This is going to hurt our country again, and that pisses me off even more.
