    I don't know what you drive or if you care about your car, but those places have shit gas. I won't put that crap in my car. Try putting a good gas like Shell in your car and then shit gas for the next tank. You will notice a very clear performance difference. (Good gas uses cleaners and detergents that are missing from the cheap gas brands.) Saving a few bucks every time you fill up doesn't contribute much to major fuel line or engine problems.

    If you're looking for a good deal for free gas, go over to my Aunt Evelyn's house and have two bowls of her from scratch French onion soup.

    So let's do the math......

    Grocery chain gives you .50 cents off gas for every $100 you spend. So you fill up your 20 gallon tank and save $10.

    Grocery chain charges between 15%-25% MORE on average for the food you just bought than warehouse clubs, discount grocers, etc. that do not offer gas perks.

    So that $100 spent on food perks actually cost you between $15-$25 more. Your fuel perks actually ADDED around $1.00 per gallon of gas to the price you paid.

    Just another reminder that in life, you rarely get something for little or nothing in return.

    and in NJ as well. Plus NJ gas is cheaper than NY gas that is self serve.

    When Corzine was NJ Governor he mentioned gong to self serve gas and his office got flooded with calls to keep full serve only.

    Fascinating. Tell us more. Premium? Mid grade? Regular? Did you utilize the filthy window washer? Did you swipe at the pump or go inside? So much to know.
