at a new gas station?" |
The guy inside said something about ethanol, but he was grasping.
I told him "you should prepare for a ton of questions, and consider telling people to fix it."
On Tuesday, they opened a new Hy-Vee gas station for the Hy-Vee across from our neighborhood. I'm glad it's there, as we already shop at Hy-Vee so the gas savings will be sweet (saved $8 this morning).
HOWEVA....the gas options are labeled as "87 Regular," "87 Unleaded," and "93 Premium." I have never seen this anywhere, and it was confusing AF to everyone buying gas this morning. The two people near me both asked which they should choose since there was no 91 octane option and there were two 87s with confusing labels.
I asked the guy inside about the difference, and he really had no idea. I've been googling this, and I can't find any evidence that there is any 87 octane that is not unleaded. 87 is basically considered regular, and everything else is plus or premium.
