    Okay, guys got a question. im sure that your all aware of the gas crisis down here in the South east. I had to wait in line for an our just to get half a tank of gas. So my question was, could i just go to a Autozone and buy a bunch of octane booster to run in my tank along with whatever little fuel i have. i mean this is only in extreme measures, but im afraid i might have to do something.

    i wouldnt do that if i were you man......too much of that bs additive can kill your catalytic converters and o2 sensors. just wait for some gas and conserve as best you can........all us here in the southeast are feeling it man.

    i waited in line today for 45 minutes for a little gas, and its the only place here that has any right now!!

    Considering the fuel shortage, I hope none of you are experiencing any theft. If not, may want to keep a watch out.

    oh yeah man. I mean they are just now starting to send gas tankers out here. Charlotte just got a hell of alot of fuel today. But last night everyone in town was out of fuel. i found one station and everyone and their brother was in line. So about a hour later, i finally got about a half of tank. Most places are even limiting to like 40$ and 35$. It sucks.
