Hey What Up, Chevron – Why Are You Still Asking Me For My Digits at the Pump? Isn’t That Illegal These Days?

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Apparently not.

Michael Finney explains it all.

Toyota recommends 91 octane for my unpimped ride, but 87 is allowed as well so that’s something to think about when you pump $101 of the precious juice at $4.09 per… (And actually, your car as well can handle 87 octane just fine. I know you might disagree but, unless you’re cruising around in an aging Porsche 912 or something, you’re wrong. You’re also a sucker as it costs just two cents more per gallon to make 91 octane. But the markup is what, 1000 percent? Something like that, sucker.)

So, all apologies, Chevron. I shouldn’t have ever suspected you all of doing something illegal or anything.
