If you want to pass for a Canadian, you'll need to brush up on your English.

@NAGTATAKA,
It all comes from the same place.

regular maintenance and good oil will do a lot more for your troubles.

Some a them Petro Canada's have a DQ burger bar in 'em, though . . . that's marginally cool . . .

@Setanta,
Since when did Dairy Queen jump the border? Were they running away from being drafted in the Burger Wars?

@NAGTATAKA,
Chevron has the best additives in the US. Canada? Who knows?

@NAGTATAKA,
On the other hand, I mostly use the cheaper stuff from the supermarket. Saves .10 to .25 per gallon and I've used in my 2003 very often since buying it new. No maintenance problems in seven years.

It does all come from the same place, though. In our market, every drop of gasoline comes from Western Refining in Gallup, NM. The additives are added by the tanker when it fills the storage tanks at the final vendor. Larger markets often receive gas from different refineries, but the difference is still pretty much in the additives.

Ride a bike or walk. You'll save the environment.

@Ragman,
There ya go. Cycling produces less polluting CO2 per mile than walking. On the other hand, feet are harder to steal.

By the time I got to work I would be too tired to work. Plus, it would be very nearly time to go home.

@edgarblythe,
That's it, then...Eureka! Stay home and telecommute. Much easier to use A2K.

(Of course, being that you do maintenance work, it's hard to phone it in, huh?)

@tsarstepan,
we've had DQ for years in the great white north
The first store in Canada opened in Estevan, Saskatchewan in 1953.

The Busiest Dairy Queen is found in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
