While you're all "oooohhhing & aaaahhhing" over Leno's car I think I'll take a walk to my garage and "ooooh & aaaah" over mine. My car looks great...his car looks so-so.

Around here the E85 is almost 80 cents a gallon cheaper than the gas with 10% alcohol and a full dollar cheaper per gallon than unleaded with no alcohol. We manufacture a lot of ethanol here in South Dakota, which may have something to do with the lower price of ethanol products. As for me, I wish I could economically convert my 76 to E85.

Wow, that's really something! 80 cents cheaper is allot of money, it might be something to consider if the gas prices keep going up the way they are (by the minute!). Everything is nuts areound here, diesel is $3.50/gal while home heating oil is $3.10, kero is $3.25 it makes no sense to me, these things are about the same stuff. Diesel is more$$ than gas!!
