Four Dollars and Four Cents

That's right, diesel for $4.04 yesterday at the Pilot off of exit 104 on I-95 in Virginia.

And it was LSD, too!

I was feeling pretty good till I read this, I fueled up in Milpitas at a chevron for $4.24 last night. at home it is $4.69.

But next week when labor day hits, prices will go off the charts.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

$3.89 a gallon Diesel in Hallendale Florida (South Florida) fill-up station.

I was so pissed because before Hurricane/Tropical Storm Fay hit I had fueled up & topped off the three diesel MBs !
