depends on the area... in some states it is cheaper than 93 in others it is more... unfortunately i am in one of the areas that generally there is a .10-.20c premium over shell93 v-power. the last time i filled up 93 was 4.539 and diesel was 4.739. i owned a v10 touareg when prices were insane and while it was relatively good on fuel for a 10 cylinder it still pinched a bit when i had to refill a 26gallon tank at just about $5 a gallon.
