Price of Heet

Postby beemerphill » Wed Jan 12, 2011 3:33 pm

A while back we had a thread about the price of Heet yellow bottle. This is just an update.
This AM (12 Jan 11) I purchased a 4-pack of Heet yellow bottle for $4.97 in Walmart in Bartlesville, Ok.
Bartlesville is located in the NE part of the state.

That's a good price.

I've not noticed what it is here in northern Illinois. I'll check later in the day at Kmart.

Thanks for the update. :D

I pick up the hardware store sales advertisements in the hardware store, and, I look for sales at the gas stations and auto parts stores.

Best price: 50-cents.

Time to buy a case of it.

I had a thought the other day about using HEET in my gas tank when I use gas that has 10% ethenol. I deduced that HEET is not necessary. Do you all concur?

I would think Heet would be redundant, if you already have 10% ethanol in the gas tank.

I wonder how much of that 10% ethanol is already saturated with water.

I think it's blended at the pump. The reason I say that is I saw a large above ground tank located at the edge of a stations property that had "ethanol" written on it in very large letters. Other large tanks were there also but didn't notice what was written on those. Maybe it was E85 :?

Yeah, living in Iowa, Heet is pretty much a scam since we have ethanol in all of our regular/mid-grade gas. This is in addition to all of the other additives gas companies add during the winter months.

I get the 4 packs for the same price here. Thus far Wal-Mart has consistently been the lowest price at $4.97 for a 4 pack. Heck, if I figure it per oz, that's a few cents cheaper than Denatured Alcohol by the gallon. (Around $14)
