$1.00/Litre is cheap. Over here 87 octane is $1.12/Litre and when I fill up on 94 octane for my Audis it costs me $1.28/Litre! Either way my Cummins had far better fuel economy than my Hemi, but if you want great fuel economy you certainly can't get one in a truck. Many people here mention trying to get better gas mileage but yet they're driving Hemis and such. It certainly isn't realistic. You can't have Dodge Viper performance and Ford Focus fuel economy.
