    top tier has nothing to do with octane

    Holiday-Stations are a little different. * All 3 Octane-levels are "Certified Top-Tier" cleaning fuels. * Their marketing-graphics/Logo use the phrase "Blue-Planet". * The 87 & 89 Octanes have Ethanol. * At least here in Fargo ND, ONLY the Premium is Ethanol-Free. * Their Premium (of course!)...

    top tier has nothing to do with octane

    In my loaded 2015 3.6L V-6 Impala LTZ, I <<< ONLY >>> use Top-Tier NO-Ethanol Premium from Shell or Holiday stations. Once a month, I'll put a 1/3-bottle of Seafoam in our cars. My small-engine stuff never sees Ethanol either.....ALWAYS with a bit of SF in the same gas. The Wife's 2014 Buick...

    What is wrong with me.

    Ah yes...the endless car-nostalgia bit! I'm 53 now. Grew up farming in E. ND. I do miss driving the BIG tractors!! I can drive anything, but prefer automatics in cars & pickups. I'm surprised most car lines even offer manuals any more! The perceived advantages of manuals are almost irrelevant...

    2015 Impala vs...

    I'm a little late here?! We got a new 2014 Regal AWD Turbo...every option. I LOVE the car & so does the Wife! The $1,000 Metallic-Black paint, & the $1,000 AQ6 Chrome wheels look stud imo. Accelerates strong, & rides nice...not too soft, not too harsh. Very solid feel. New msrp was $39,500 I...

    Regal Haldex info....

    Interesting stuff there guys! All-in-all, I'm glad our Regal has a pretty decent AWD-system for the class/segment it's in. I'm excited to "feel it" in action! Fargo just missed a big snow-system. It went to our south. I kinda wanted to see what the Regal would do in new snow/ice! Faron

    Regal Haldex info....

    Hmmmm... I realize it's not the exact same unit obviously, but the wildly expensive Bugatti Veyrons have a permanent AWD Haldex traction system. Maybe you should tell that to the Bugatti designers. They seem to know what they're doing.... Just sayin'! <img src="/forums/graemlins/12.gif"...

    Our new 2014 Buick-Regal AWD 2.0 Turbo! (non-GS)

    Obviously you'd probably get that car for less than $20G?!??! That sounds like a good value! Sadly, the MT is such a liability for most people. If is was an AT, it would've been gone long ago...my guess anyway. Faron

    Our new 2014 Buick-Regal AWD 2.0 Turbo! (non-GS)

    Hey Benzadmiral! At least for the 2014's & 15's, the only way the MT is available, is FWD-ONLY. I'm not a MT fan at all. I can drive-'em just fine....grew up farming! I can drive anything, but in cars, naaaaahhh, give me an AT! We get Buicks 4-yr. warranty, & 4 "free" Oil-changes. I'm...

    First turbo looking for advice 2014 Regal

    Hi guys! We're pretty new to our 2014 Regal AWD 2.0 Turbo. Loaded Prem.II group. We got mid-July. I posted pics of it here in the VEHICLES forum, if interested. Owner's-Manual obviously stresses Dexos-1 Licensed Oils. It specifically states to use the GM Semi-Synthetic 5W-30. 0W-30 suggested...

    Our new 2014 Buick-Regal AWD 2.0 Turbo! (non-GS)

    For the heck of it, here's the '06 GP GT, with the Supercharged 3.8L obviously...& the optional bigger wheels. Loaded Black-Leather interior. 92,000mi when we traded for the Regal mid-July. Over the years we had it, I MAYBE added a QT....TOTAL...of Oil!!! (that's the complete opposite of MY...

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Somewhat funny coincidences here... * I've watched a lot of those "TFL-Car" videos this year, including anything Regal/LaCrosse related! * I joined that Buick Forum last July! Had been reading it most of last summer. * Funny you mention a Grand-Prix LS1Mike! We...

    Oh man! Thanks guys! Does photo-bucket work? This is one of the few forums I've used that you can't upload pics from your computer!? To ME...it's easier. Faron
