I filled at 1.35 at esso on lougheed and willingdon.

What a fucking gong show! One guy was trying to turn his 1982 Chevy piece-of-fuck around yelling at everyone like its their fault YOU forgot what side the filler tube is on-he looked like he'd be a real treat at the best of times anyway.

Then a kid in a 300 comes roaring in and cuts in front of people and there is more yelling.

I could have filled my car all day long with that kind of entertainment.

Seriously people...its just gas! On 100 liters, you save $10(over the normal 1.45) yeah, its nice to get a break, but is it bring out the savage in you worthy?

i just drive to abby once a week. Gas is usually in the 1.20's there. 94 octane in abby is pretty much the same price as regular gas in vancouver / surrey etc. lol

I'm all for saving a few bucks but if there's a lineup I'm not waiting. A lot of the time the worst in people come out just to save some change.

The lineup wasn't long but somehow the retards in front of me took freakin forever and waited 15 minutes for two people to fill up. Saw most people filling up their jerry cans too and they weren't even the big 20L ones. Think most of them had 5-10L cans. Is it really worth the wait and drive to save 35-70 cents? Saw another guy top off his tank too. He must've filled it with maybe like 10L lulz

Anyone notice that Chevron seems to be the only station that adds +.13 on 91? Esso and Petro does +.14 and Shell does +.15 (although shell does claim at the pump that they don't add ethanol on 91, whereas the others say up to 10% is added...).

Crazy annoying isn't it? Went to mission last weekend and it was like 130, get to maple ridge at it's at 140.

Also, why is it bad to have this as a fuel general thread?

1.35 gas is cheap?!?

Now that's something I don't miss of BC.

Edit: the app is GasBuddy since I have yet seen anyone answering that.

Some guy posted gas was 98.9 at chevron at kingsway and killarney this morning when I was going to work at 7am. Being gullible I went and the gas station was closed for construction. Damn gas buddy. Fml
