It's between $4.09 - $4.15 here - use the gasbuddy app, tells you the gas stations and their prices around the area... however some stations like BP charges a up to $0.08 less if you pay cash, which the app won't tell you.

Filled it up from the bottom the other day for somewhere around $90! That's a big ouch compared to my CNG cavalier that costs $8.50 ($1.49/gal in UT right now) to fill.

I fill up 93 when I hit around quarter tank.. usually 75-87 depending how i've been driving that week with the MPG, lol Gas here runs from 3.70 to 3.99 per gallon I usually stick with shell. Also not a good idea to run your tank until empty, fuel pump will hate you. Orlando, Fl

In London UK I fill up at £1.38p litre ($2.24 per liter).

Which works out to be around £135-£145 ($219-$235) to fill her up all the way.

By the way only fill up in Shell.

Last time I checked, $4.03/gal x 24 gal = ~$97. Kind of close to $125 I guess

Paying 3.65 a gallon for premium around here. I would gladly fill the 750 up compared to the close to 4 bucks a gallon for diesel for my truck.
