    Gas

    Might be a dumb question but what's the difference between supreme and premium? I've seen some HD owners put supreme in their trucks.

    I think the only difference in those 2 names is what station you are filling at. In CA its 91 octane for either of those names, and 93 octane in most other states.

    As long as you are using 91+ octane you should be fine.

    yup it's just the name, you need to check the octane. Here supreme is usually 93, unless you go to wawa then it's 92, or if you go to sunoco it's 91 and ultra is 93. I've gotten in the habbit if asking for the octane I want, so if I go to another station I don't accidently ask for premium and its actually what they call their midgrade. I just ask for fill it with 93.

    People in them states are rich and lazy so they don't want to have to pump gas.

    Its just a law. Not important enough for anyone to go make a bill to repeal I guess. IDK, I live in Cal, so no one pumps my fuel for me. Though I have traveled through OR and got out to pump my own gas, then get yelled at...thats always fun.

    Because it's an azz backwards law, that the state doesn't consider the average person qualified to pump their own gas, so it's illegal to pump it yourself. Even though 48 other states you have to pump it yourself.

    Some people love it, I can't stand it. If you try to do it yourself a lot of employees spaz out because they can get in trouble for letting people pump their own. The sunoco I go to usually just hands me the nozzle when I pull up with the HD with the fuel cell, so at least they let me fill it up, but they still have to stand there and operate the buttons lol.
