Americans are spilling over the Mexico border to gas up.

A person who was interviewed by CNN said he comes into Mexico to fill his tank during the weekend to enjoy a saving of $1.50 a gallon. He's not alone. Many Americans living near the border are crossing over to do the same thing. Some do grocery shopping while they are there, a double savings. An expert on gas quality said the Mexico gas contains high sulfur which is harmful to the engine in the long run. If a person keeps using this type of fuel, the engine will damage and the cost of repair will exceed the savings.

Please correct any mistakes.
Thanks.

Thanks, Clive and Optilang.

Clive, could you give me an idea why "the cost of repair" is incorrect or less preferred?

Hi,

It's just less idiomatic. Perhaps 'repair cost' is easier to say, as well as being shorter.

Thanks for correcting for naturalness. I really appreciate it.
