I know the formula for shell gas is the same for North America. You might have problems with smaller stations and places like Superstore, Costco and Canadian tire because they get there gas from wherever.

I heard about states having dirty gas too. Dealership told me about stories of people getting gas in states then having to replace their fuel pump cause it got clogged up.

i overheard some guy at work saying you can bring back 24L in a jerry can in a day. not sure if it's accurate though. i've seen guys in the line up at costco in bellingham bring out 3x24L jugs out of the back of their SUV.

I went across this morning. Gas was $3.81 at USA Gas and just over 4 bucks at Chevron.

I had to pick up a parcel at Letterlock, so the gas was just another reason to go south. I filled up a 20 litre jerry can. No problem. Border guard told me one jerry can, no problem. Anymore than that and they will take notice...... totally not worth getting flagged over. Since I started going on a weekly basis, the border guards are starting to remember me. "So gas again this morning?"

Which border crossing was this, MG1? The border guards at PR always give me a hard time/open up everyones trunks to look for gas.

Correct me if i'm wrong.. I believe we are the source of our gas but apparently we sell to a larger U.S. company who intern sells it back to us at a obviously jacked up price..

NEXUS owners , quick question.

planning on going later today solely for filling up the gas tank in my vehicle only ( no jerry cans nor other goods will be purchased)

will the gas (in the vehicle already ) need to be declared on the TDC ( will be rush hour so i dont want to wait in regular lineup)?

Gas in your tank does not have to be declared.

According to some of the members, you are allowed to make verbal declarations.

Fortunately, the gas at grocery stores like Fred Meyer and QFC are Shell-derived so I'm not too worried about it being "dirty". Comes with the benefit of being 10-15 cents cheaper than Chevron.

The Mazda guys say that our gas is the shits up here. Cobb maps that work fine for 91 in the states get knock retard like crazy on our 94.

For Nexus user you are allowed to do a verbal declaration on the goods, and just like the regular lineup, it all depends on the officer on duty whether you get taxed or not.

I go to PR few times a month and I use my Nexus, and I never gotten taxed in the Nexus line.

This is the exact conversation betweem me and CBSA, with my paypal receipt, shipping info, and TDC ready in hand.

CBSA: "So?" [I have never had that before, usually it's where you live, why you went, what you bring back? Instead this time in Nexus, she just said "so?"]
Me: "I am purchased a $250 car part, a used exhaust."
CBSA: "Have a nice day."
Me: "You don't want to see my Nexus card or my passport? What do I do with the TDC? Sorry, it's my first time using Nexus."
CBSA: "That's fine, good bye."

I got through within 5-10 seconds. The Nexus card appears to be a "no-questions asked" card.

Nope. You can do verbal at NEXUS lines now. I got that straight from the CBSA agent when I was crossing at PR.

Also, Texaco = Chevron. I always fill up at the Texaco at Pt. Roberts because they are cheaper than Shell/Chevron plus free coffee.

Huntingdon/Sumas in Abbotsford. There could be 50 cars in the lineup and everybody gets through without any problems. Some people are in and through in under a minute. So weird. With my beard and whatnot, I look like a freaking terrorist. You'd figure they'd check me out, but nope.

Hey Falcon, why don't you READ some of the Mazdaspeed tuning boards before you ignorantly fail.

Here's one to start: Blog : Local Mazdaspeed3 Custom Tuning Day with the COBB AccessPort : Stratified Automotive Controls


Nothing I said was untrue. Jackass.
