Do you use premium fuel in your vehicle? If so, do you know why? Recently AAA published a study that says we as Americans are wasting $2.1 billion dollars on premium fuel per year.

I knew I wanted a car, but I didn’t have a specific make and model in mind. I talked to my sales person over the phone before I came to the dealership.
