91 Premium is $9 a gallon here. And nobody bloody well use the exchange rate and say "Oh that is only $6.50" because I am not paying in US dollars!

Exactly! And that is where using the exchange rate to compare prices falls apart.
If you take 30% off a price for exchange then you have to take 30% off my income making it just as expensive.

Theoretically you are paid 30% more Canada dollars than US dollars though.

Well that and there are nothing but straight roads, and shitty ones at that. I'll probably settle with a Corolla hatchback or some other econo-shitbox and focus on a mortgage instead of a cool car.
You will part out or sell as is?

Gas companies raking in record profits seems a good start...
Is the few extra mpg actually going to be savings if it means car hopping? Or are there other reasons you are looking at something else...?
Paid $6.59/gal - gas may cost more than tires on the racing budget soon!
