I shop at Costco. The price is $27 for 6 qts. That is $4.50 per qt. Pretty hard to beat. Also, qt bottles are a lot easier to handle than gallon jugs.

I just use a 70# bag of sand in the trunk for snow on the road and it is just fine with my 19" all-seasons. All that weight in the trunk is way overkill!

I ordered mine here in Portland mid May 2010 and I drove it away from the dealer July 2nd. Not bad. I tracked it all the way across the country from the plant. It moved right along pretty steady.

Here in Oregon it rains almost everyday for six months of the year. Well, thats a little exageration, but the car does just fine in the rain. I do like keeping it in the garage at night.
