Not sure. I used 94 at Sunoco until they eliminated it due to it being environmentally unfriendly. For all those years, I saw no particular advantage of 94 octane in mileage or performance.

It has 110k miles now. Around 100k I got a "check engine" light. I think the MAF was replaced and the intake related items were cleaned (EGR, valves having to do with starting? Can't recall the list) It was something like $500. I noticed no change in performance after the maintenance.

It really makes no sense to get rid of a running car today. I can see that.

The auto loan bubble may burst as the real estate one did. But right now, car prices will continue to rise like tuition due to the high availability of loans.

Had a chance to update my fuel log.

106,632 miles
2,948.207 gals
Avg MPG = 36.17

My most recent tanks are running in the 30-32MPG range. More in line w/what you see on fuelly.
