I notice they are always hugely above - I'd never subsidize that! I typically go to the 76 in the Mission or to 3rd & Evans for the best prices (or East Bay).

I also have that hum at 70 mph, as well as the sqeaky handbrake. It is a relief to know that I'm not the only one that has a car with so much 'character'.
