Holy sh#t thats cheap. I pay about 1.40 a liter in canada. So you pay about 1.02 be happy. It'll get alot worse. Just imagine paying $5.31 a gallon. It blows severely

Yup. We have E10 mandated here, but there are a few places that offer the 100% gas alongside E10.

Left the bar, and hit a dog on the way home

Then I watched a sheriff run the same dog over as I was calling dispatch.

Little bastard darted into the street, realized I was there, tried to do a 180 but met it's untimely demise beneath both wheels on the passenger side.

Little guy almost made it too.

We have Winn Dixie grocery stores here, and they have a fuel perks program. For every 50 bucks you spend in the store, you get 10 cents off of every gallon of gas you buy at shell. So when I go grocery shopping about every 2 weeks, it comes out to 50 cents off every gallon up to 20 gallons. I get 93 for almost cheaper than regular.

We have the same thing but is for luckys, in Arizona we had the same thing too but it was for Safeway. But I'm a college student lol unless i buy $50 worth of Top Ramen i normally don't get the discount lol

I have a Winn-Dixie. How do I get this benefit? Do I only need a rewards card or something and I enter it at shell? Also, does anyone know if Kroger or Publix has something similar. I like shopping there more.

We have that with Shell and Kroger. Love it. $100 spent at Kroger or Shell gets a $0.10/gal. discount, and it accumulates. Based on my grocery bills and how little I have to fill up now that I live closer to work, I usually have a $0.30-0.40/gal. discount each fillup. Only downside is that I don't ever get to use it in the E46 since I run the non-E10 100% gas in it, which Shell doesn't sell here.

You get a rewards card from Winn Dixie and every time you checkout they swipe it, then when you go to shell you swipe your debit card or credit card then it will ask if you have wd card say yes swipe it and new price will appear on pump.
