Some stations in Wpg are 5cents off a litre on Mondays and Thursdays...Coop cheques are out next week and are paying out over 12 cents a litre

Anybody knows what's the price of V-power at Mississauga today? It was 1.449 yesterday but must have gone up today.
Might as well just fill up at Costco, screw airmiles!

You still get 25 AM with the regular stuff, so you're paying like 5$ on your fill-up, to get about 2.50$ worth more of points. You're out 2.50$. You're a long way to retirement if that's also how you manage your investments :lol:
WHO,
Thanks for confirming my silliness to do a $50 V-Power fill last nite...I KNEW (ok, I had a feeling) it was a waste of extra $5.80 over Bronze, but now you've confirmed it. I feel better, really, that my gut told me NOT to do the V-fill, but I did it anyway cuz of a silly urge to get over 1200 AMs to make a rental car booking. :cry:

Plus, you've reaffirmed that my decision during the January promo, was the RIGHT move, i.e., I did two $50 Bronze fills last time. I've gotta trust my GUT more often! ;)

Bronze was $1.282 last nite in the GTA. TGPT.ca said it would go up 1.7c at midnight, last night, to $1.299.

You need a 'visual' to confirm, cuz sometimes TGPT.ca is wrong...eg, last nite at around 9pm, they said it was going up 0.9c, and now today they say it's actually 1.7c.

Which is....? How much more? Sorry, using the Touch/mobile app and I can't see your Location.

Bronze is $1.282 in and around the GTA. So V, I will assume is 17c more. At about 40L to hit $50, that means an extra $6.80. So, is 25AM worth an extra ~$6?

Not looking for an answer, everyone will have their own opinion.
that was steeles/passmore

so 1.449-1.282 = 0.167

The Shell station at Dixie/Burnhamthorpe in Mississauga does not accept credit cards for gift cards! I pumped $25, went inside, grabbed $25 LCBO, just to find out I can't pay for it! I didn't have any cash, so ended up just paying for gas and no promo miles. Screw you Shell!

*Cheap Gas Alert* I just filled up (at 9:40pm) at the Shell @ Victoria Park/Finch and they are out of Bronze gas, which means a free upgrade to V-Power!

Okay so I went and filled my car, which was almost empty and took over 75$ of bronze. Then I realized I think I should have split that into 3 purchases, buying a 25$ gift card with each purchase, so I could get 3x25 bonus points rather than just 25 bonus points, right? Is there a limit to how many times you can get the promo with same air miles card?

I didn't say to use regular 87 octane, but Costco 89. That's what the car requires according to the manual and there is no premature detonation with it. You are right about the ethanol though. However, also keep in mind that no ethanol means your car will take longer to heat up when you start it in the current weather, so you'll be burning more gas just idling.
i dont know what you're driving, but mine says "vehicle is designed to operate on premium unleaded gasoline with pump octane of 91 or higher. if this octane grade is unavailable, regular unleaded gasoline with a pump octane of 87 or higher may be used temporarily."
