    Think you're paying too much for your unleaded? Well look here:

    If your car ran on Diet Snapple, that'll be $10.32 per gallon ($1.29 for a 16 oz bottle)

    If it ran on Lipton Iced Tea, how does $9.52 per gallon sound? ($1.19 for a 16 oz bottle)

    Gatorade? $10.17 per gallon. ($1.59 for a 20 oz bottle)

    Ocean Spray?? Well, while it would be real cool to have CranGrape flowing through your engine, it'll also soak up $10 a gallon! ($1.25 per 16 oz)

    So, what if auto engineers found a way to run our cars on Brake Fluid? Seeing how it's in our car anyway? Well, then we'd be paying $33.60 per gallon ($3.15 for 12 oz)

    This isn't a typo! If WHITE-OUT could make cars go it would cost us $25.42 per gallon ($1.39 per 7 oz bottle)

    SCOPE!! It can clean your mouth and make your breathe rock, but put it in your tank and you're paying $84.48 per gallon (.99 cents per 1.5 oz mini-bottle)

    These gas prices making you SICK? Then have some Pepto Bismol!! Just thank GOD it doesn't go in your car... a 4 oz bottle goes for $3.85. That's $123.20 PER gallon

    Vick's Nyquil MIGHT be the nighttime achey, coughy, stuffy-head, fever, so you can rest medicine... but if it was fuel too, you'd be paying $178.13 per gallon ($8.35 per 6 oz bottle)

    Now here's the funny part... Evian Water... which no one REALLY knows WHERE it comes from... if WATER could replace gasoline, using EVIAN would cost you $21.19 per gallon ($1.49 per 9 oz bottle)

    yeah but if you look at it this way then originally that snapple was $.69 and FOR THE SAME ITEM the price inflated to where your now paying $1.29.... BUT your not buying just one but a CASE a time with no discount /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Pepto Bismal? Snapple? Sure, use examples that cost a lot.

    How about some other examples...like water. If the manufacturers could design an engine to run only on water then I could fill my 31 gallon tank for about 5-10 cents. I live in the country and have a deep well....my well pump costs 25cents per hour to run.

    Being from Cali and being able to only run premium not to mention my K5 is my DD, current prices piss me off! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
