    It's 3.69 and 3.99 for gas here, diesel at 3.05.

    As to the sixes, there is very little gain. They have to work so much harder to haul these heavy old cars around and in town there's not only no gain, they get worse. You'd be better off with an OD tranny. Stay off the accelerator. Also, all the company documentation will tell you these cars are designed to get optimum mileage at 55mph, fwy driving. So, take your time, get there five minutes later, and save bucks! A fair trade in my humble opinion.[^]

    In Sweden I pay about 10 Kronor for a litre.
    A US Gallon is 3,75 Litre.
    10 Kronor is about 1,43 USD.

    ---5,36 USD/Gallon---I Win!---

    Did all the mental gymnastics needed to convert Cdn to US dollar and Imperial gallons to US and it worked out to $3.70/US gallon so San Fran is comparable to us price wise.
