John E Davies Posted May 31, 2022 Share Posted May 31, 2022 We have been cruising around southern ID, down to Great Basin NP (east central NV), then back up through northwest NV and southeast OR. Prices were typically $4.79 to $5.39 for Regular 85 or 87 octane. We are now at Steens Mountain / Alvord Desert, a VERY remote arid corner of the state, so remote most Oregomers have never been there and many don’t even know it exists😬 So remote you have to fill up whenever you find a functional gas station, when your Land Cruiser is burning it at a rate of 9.3 mpg, with only a 25 gallon tank😳 Fields Station: Topped her up, 13 gallons for $94 - @ $7.40 per gallon: The shakes are truly wonderful, and the small one costs a little less than a gallon of gas. But WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Their Premium grade ethanol free pump across the lot, which their local guy called “aviation fuel” @ $8.95 per gallon: I have always accepted the fact that my truck is a gas hog, but I may have to park “Mouse” this season, or limit the trips to some local COE campgrounds within an hour’s drive. We drove 4500 miles up into BC and Yukon last August and the prices were way cheaper. This doesn’t look like Oregon… John Davies Spokane WA 1 3 "Mouse": 2017 Legacy Elite II NARV (Not An RV) Two Beds, Hull Number 218, See my HOW TO threads: https://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/john-e-davies-how-to-threads-and-tech-articles-links/ Tow Vehicle: 2013 Land Cruiser 200, 33" LT tires, airbags, Safari snorkel.
