In the US the state/Federal combination varies.  Last time I checked Federal was 18.4 cents (24.4 cents for diesel) and states varied between 18 and 35 cents (or something close to that that).  The European excise taxes on fuel would make all of us stateside cry.  France is about 70% of the pump price.  Holland was highest last time I had reason to check.  Tax there was about $3.50 per gallon.  On top of nearly all the European's fuel tax is the VAT that gets charged on the full cost too.  Ouch.

$8.11 for a US gallon in the UK. Roughly 70% of that is tax, including VAT, which is 20% currently.  Great, eh?  Paying tax on the tax we pay...

So if my calculations are correct, it's $9.17 a gallon (US) for 98 octane in Italy.  :o

Last year on a little island in Greece I was paying $2.09 euro a liter for 100 octane.  :'(

God knows how much it is this year.

Not a direct comparison though.  The octane rating method for Europe isn't the same we use in the US and Canada.  We use AKI (anti knock index) method of R+M/2 while most of the rest use the RON (Research Octane Number) standard (that's the "R" in R+M).  A 95 on the European RON scale is about the same as 91 on the North American AKI standard.

I always run Shell V-Power in my bike - 98 Octane - when I can get it.  Never thought it would make a real difference, but it does. Was on a hire Ultra in Australia for a couple of weeks, with temps over 100 degrees, and the bike sounded and ran like a bag of wrenches. V-Power in it (it goes beyond just the octane rating, other 98 Octane brands don't do it) and the transition to a smooth, nice sounding motor was incredible.

In Germany - never seen it elsewhere I don't think, though I may be mistaken - some filling stations have V-Power Racing - 100 Octane.  Wish we could get that here!
