Coming down a little

Pumped super for my GF at my local Chevron. Her tank took $4.079/gallon for super with the cash card discount. I looke over at the diesel cost for cash card use ....$3.819/gallon. So, we a have 26 cent diff btw diesel and super here. Regular going for $3.779/gallon with cash card. So, 4 cents cheaper for regular compared to diesel.

I've been paying about $3.89 gal here and 87 oct is at $4.19 The diesel prices have stayed rock solid for the past few months while gas has been all over the place. Gas is down from last month when regular was getting up to $4.50

Driving in Wisconsin today I saw that diesel is about a dime cheaper than regular gasoline.

I noticed this past weekend that 87 octane has gone down here. Not near as substantial as there though. Diesel still is 3.89 - 3.99 for me and been that way for weeks(if not months) now.

I just filled up my torque beast tonight. Diesel is $3.869 vs 87 octane @ $3.759 , you won't want to know 93 octane pricing.

I'm traveling in the Northeast with my wife's A3 which runs on 93. Here in the Phila suburban area 93 is costing 4.45 and D is around 4.20. At least I'm averaging 30 + mpg.

Bayou city, thats strange that the offset is about 11 cents/gallon. Its pretty much 4 cents from reg to diesel on south side of Houston. The reg price sounds right but the diesel is higher than it should be. What Chevron were you at?

On the NE and W sides of Houston it is pretty much a 10 cent difference between diesel and 87. But 87 has been dropping and not sure how long that difference will hold. Diesel on the other hand has seemed to stay in the same general price range at the places I frequent enough to pay attention too.

Just put Chevron in the d and it was $4.05 a gallon. Put Chevron in the 535i and it was $4.29 for 93 octane. Take a guess which car is getting driven the most this week.

I use the one by 290 & 610 N . I typically see 10 cents difference between diesel & 87 octane lately.

Not yet buddy. Have to wait a couple of years before some CPO models start showing up.

Just buy a new one. I will buy that off you in a couple years when you are tired of it. I will of course buy it at a price that amounts to you taking a horrifying loss on the deal.

Gee thanks. In all seriousness....I would be disinclined to buy a new M5 because I know how steep the depreciation curve would be. In 3 years I will have 100k on my 535i and a 2013-2014 M5 should be about 55-60k as a CPO. Makes a good alternatve to another 535/550. We shall see, but I predict that high gas prices will keep the CPO values on the M5 low.

When I was still shopping E63 CPO cars, I decided to do some searches for M5 CPO cars. I surprisingly found next to none. I always wondered why that was because I certainly see my fair share of the cars on the roads.

Here in NorCal the prices seem to be stabilizing a bit. $4.55 for premium and $4.65 for diesel, although these do vary with diesel in some stations the same price as premium or a few cents more. No rhyme or reason I can detect, just the whim of the station owner. Filled up next to a new Jetta TDI sportwagon and the driver was telling me that he just broke 50 mpg on his last highway mpg tank full. I guess at that mileage I wouldn't be unhappy with $4.65 diesel either.

You will need to cast a wide net. In my neck of the woods people buy expensive cars and trade them all the time. It is not uncommon for me to see a Ferrari or Lambo while driving down the street to get groceries. The end result for me is that selection of high end used cars is much higher in South Florida then say Texas. If you were to search for CPO M5's I would suggest that you concentrate your search in South Florida and Southern California. It appears you would have to travel to find the right car.

My car shopping was across the country. I found that with the E63 specifically that here in Texas I'd spend at least $10k more for a car over other States. Considering shipping a car across country is usually no more than $2k and a flight to look at something is not much if not free with all my miles then was a no brainer to search outside my area.

Don't whine. I'm in Italy and paid 1.72/ltr today for diesel. At today's exchange rate it's about $9/gal.

I saw it for $4.29 today but was a station I never drive by. So might just be one always super expensive.

I fill up my diesel @ $3.939 today which is cheaper than 89 octane & 93 octane. However, 87 octane is selling for $3.799/gallon .

Italy has the highest fuel prices we have encountered during our European vacation. Austria had the lowest with Germany in the middle. However, when you factor in the tolls on the Austrian highways, the total cost is as high, if not higher than Germany since the German autobahns are toll free as far as I know.
