It was truly human error that cause computer glitch...They put the price in the computer didn't like it and default to 1.10...

Either we get it at Sam's Club or Quick Trip (if you don't have one near you, you don't know what you are missing out on).

So thats what I use - 87 octane ethanol-free Shell gas from my local station.
Damn... I just carefully inspected the pumps today when filling up and there's a sticker saying may contain up to 10%/reg. 5%/mid. and 0% prem. When did that happen?!?!?!?!?

Looks like I'll have to stick to premium if I want to avoid killing my emissions system prematurely.
