I am a new member and I was ONLINE I was wondering about this site because when I'm out driving am always wondering where could I go to get cheap gas that is in my area. Once I normally fill up as I drive a little further down the street I than see cheaper gas wishing I would of got my gas from that place , so I think this is a very good site once I find out how to put my gas prices on here so I can take advantages of the things you have to offer and hoping that I am not to late to get the points to win the free gas.

Not really a good deal unless your sucking fumes and have a really dirty vehicle. Here the deal is $.20 per gal, but it's still not worth it. Carwashes are big money makers for the stations, like buying coffee at 7-11 or Starbucks, they have a big profit margin there too.

Too expensive and I'd rather wash it by hand.

I don't really see where I can save any money when I get a car wash. The wash is expensive and it is usually not very good.

It's a scam, unless you really need your car washed.

Usually, I'm buying car wash with combining gas in winter time once or twice. I'm washing my car myself during summer, spring, and fall seasons. And use touchless car wash. Touch one will make tons of scratches on your car. Even though they are clean, dust or fine soil on your car would be in between car and brush and it makes lots of scratches. I made a mistake to choose touch car wash a few times.
