Cointreau, St. Germain, and Domaine de Canton

But, there's really nothing else like these fine French liqueurs, is there?

On certain makes of cars extended warranties are life savers believe it or not.

Certain higher end vehicles have a high compression ration which requires a higher octane fuel to prevent knocking.

Things that cost more than they're worth: Everything that is subject to government regulation, or, in short, everything. Houses, food, fuel including premium gas (which I buy for my car), energy, clothing, cars, etc etc etc. Graft costs money, y'all.

My '63 T-Bird loved premium gas. The motor was designed and tuned for it. It got around 12-15 mpg. As heavy as that car was, it had acceleration like nothing else I've ever driven (390 cu in, 4 bbl carb). It could do 10 mph to 75 mph on a freeway on ramp like nothin'. Of course it couldn't stop worth shit -- "stops on a dollar" I used to quip.

These days I still drive my 2003 dirty diesel. Grandfathered in, it doesn't need smog.

I had 2 friends who owned GTO's. They would use "High test" as it was called back in the 60's. I didn't realize there were autos still like those great GTO's that used high octane. I mean all stations have it, so I figured someone bought the expensive product.

My GTO friends always had girls who wanted rides. Chicks dig the fast cars! One girl would always ask for them to "opeb it up." She loved to hear those carbs sucking air. I teed it up for you wiseguys.

That was unexpected, but i think I understand their logic considering it's a 3 cylinder turbo charge ICE engine, the 91 octane is needed to squeeze out more power, but since it has such a small tank, it won't cost you that much.
