    Hi PriusCpilot:

    Indeed ;)

    This is your area so are you seeing the same at the stations near you?

    I'me not a big oil burner fan but B 100 is $ 3.59 here in Houston (it's not straight vegetable oil)


    VW will void the warranty of users of B-10 through B-100
    Reason, the DPF cleaning shot does not fully atomize, sticks to cylinder walls and gets scraped off into the crankase.
    This dilutes the oil & causes early engine failure (or so I hear)

    Price gap has narrowed a lot here in IL too. Normally the prices swap places when the summer blend gas hits the Chicago area.

    In Iowa, the gap was around 80 cents per gallon around holiday time. It has since narrowed to around 35-40 cents, but that's still $6 more for an average fill-up.

    Hi All:

    While performing the 2013 Civic EX-L’s calibration drive last night, here was the gap locally here North of Chicago.

    That's bio so it's exempt from state fuel tax or it would be much higher.
