Nah, that's just California government accounting. Kinda like, "Hey! Let's have a lottery and give the proceeds to the state, then when we spend all those proceeds, we'll just BORROW (and pay interest on OUR money) from the lottery funds" True story.

I was just remembering waaaay back in about '92, when I was complaining to my service mgr about a little lag in hot starting (still have that lag by the way).

He said "you could try regular gas, it's more volatile and might light off faster - It won't hurt the M103 engine at all". He really said that - I had just forgotten about it until now.

Of course I wouldn't dare try it in my new MB then. And back than, premium was only about a dime more than regular. But these days, the car is older, and gas costs way too much, and I hate giving those middle-easterners any more money that I have to. (that's something we can all agree on, right!).
