Petrol (as it is called here) is definitely more expensive . Roughly 1.80 american money per litre, which sits somewhere around five dollars a gallon if my maths are right. That is 91 octane as well. I think I have read somewhere in the forum that there is no point using higher octane so dont pay much attention to higher octane prices.
I had the very economical Nissan Note (not sure if they have made the way to the US, but are a major used import to NZ from Japan now) before the bike, and that was costing around 65 american to fill up. My weekly routine hasnt changed much, so each 7-10 days i am saving fifity american dollars each week.
A mate of mine who bought some nice, plush late model BMW (cage, not bike) is spending upwards of 120 dollars a week...For that price, I could buy a new Rebel every few months!
