Default Is it worth the drive?

I usually get Marine fuel off of Bayfront (Pensacola)as of today the price is $3.08 a gallon. Last time I went to Buc-Ees
( Robertsdale)Marine fuel was $ 2.47 a gallon that was three weeks ago. I looked online but was unable to find a website nor a contact number to get the current price per gallon. Anybody been to Buc- Ees to know the current price? If I could save $.90 to $1.00 it’s worth the drive. Thx in advance.

How often do you run your boat? If you can blow through a full tank in a couple of weeks, I wouldnt bother with marine fuel in the first place.

I use marine fuel in every engine I have. From lawn equipment to all cars and trucks.

Same here and in over 3.5 years and 3000 hrs Ive NEVER had an issue with my motors other than finally blowing a lower unit a few weeks ago. Granted that was of course not fuel related.

When you are talk 130 plus gallons it means a lot. All I need is a price pre gallon.

Well my work took me right by Buc-Ees, so I stopped in and took a pic of this week fuel prices. Needless to say it’s not worth the time nor the wear and tear on equipment.
$3.08 vs $2.69. Not saving but 20.00, if I only put in 120 gallons of fuel.

Care to share where you get fuel "off of Bayfront". I'd like to compare to the new Murphy's (Walamrt on 29 and 9 mile) which has 87 octane non ethanol at a decent price.
