# How much air are you paying for when fueling up a car for instance if you bought 1 gallon of gas would it be a solid gallon of fuel or is the air in the line going on the cost as well?

-- The measuring takes place inside the pump. It's calculated from the turns of the

pump motor, so anything in the line has already been measured before you begin.

-- There should be no air in the line. When the previous customer finishes his delivery,

the hose is still full of fuel when the valve at the end of the nozzle closes. That bit

in the hose has already been counted previously, so if you want to be technical, you

get it for free. But you can't actually get it unless you run more gas through the pump

to push it out with, and then when you're finished, your cost includes that same amount

of liquid that stays in the hose for the next customer.

So I'd say that you get the amount of gasoline molecules you pay for, but they're not all

exactly the same molecules that got tallied up to determine the cost to you.

### If I pay 20 for 1 gallon of shampoo that dilutes 32-1 what am I paying per gallon Same question for a shampoo that dilutes 50 to 1 and costs 49.40 per gallon?

If you pay 20 for 1 gallon, then you are paying 20 for one gallon. Similarly if you are paying 49.40 for 1 gallon, then you are paying 49.40 for one gallon. --------------------------------------------------- If, however, you meant how much you are paying for 1 gallon WHEN IT HAS BEEN DILUTED, then: When diluting 32:1, you will add 32 gallons of water to make 33 gallons in total. You will then be paying: (40 + cost of 32 gallons of water) &divide; 33 &asymp; 1.21 + the cost of 32/33 gallon of water. When diluting 50 to 1 you will add 50 gallons of water to make 51 gallons in total. You will then be paying: (49.40 + cost of 50 gallons of water) &divide; 51 &asymp; 0.96 + the cost of 50/51 gallon of water.

I was paying between 17.9 and 18.9... In 1968 I bought a 68 GTO and was paying 19.9 and could fill could fill up for about 3 dollars In my area of W-Ky a gallon of gasoline in 1966 cost .25 cents per gallon on average. Adjusted for inflation that is equal to \$1.81 in 2013.
