If I'm not back in an hour, send a banker.
LOL i HATE filling my truck 50-60 a tank starts to suck, when you get $100 paychecks!
$58 and a whopping 10.24 mpg.
Man, I'm glad this thing isn't my daily driver!
lol kinda glad im still wrenching on the burban- dont gotta fill it up yet,
thats why i got a cavi for the dd
burban- 40 gallon tank-ouch
Ouch is right. I've "only" got the 31 but that's enough. I put off filling it up until I installed my new tank straps. The p.o. had some of those cheezy (and rusted) uni-straps on it. I cut them off with a pair of tin snips.
I can't imagine how they were holding up 200 lbs of gas.
I've got a Mazda dd and gets almost 3x the mileage.
Got a snow storm coming tomorrow, though. Figured I better top off the four-by.
Hey, I don't know if you have Speedway gas stations where you are but they have a great rewards program. You can earn points for gas discounts up to $.50 per gallon.
7 mpg's and a 20 gallon suicide tank, Passes everything but a station. Not as bad as my dd 96' 2 door tahoe that gets 11.5mpg's. I drive 35K-40K a year i know all about s***ty mileage. If mileage was a concern i would not be here.
try having a burb in socal... and no job.
I can only afford to go wheeling
My last fill was ~27 gallons. It cost me just shy of $61. With my lead foot (acceleration, not speed), that'll probably get me around 250 miles in this relatively flat town. It's my DD now, promoted from resto project to resto project + DD.
Of course, if you compare the fairly low insurance premiums (~$150 for 6 months for ) to the full-coverage costs of a financed new vehicle - and the cost of taxes/plates/tags for a new vehicle - and the cost of a newer vehicle loan payment - and the hellish depreciation that you will eat on a newer vehicle, it doesn't seem too bad to pay 60 bucks for a tank of gas, even when you drink it at about 10mpg.
In any case, if I valued a cheap gas bill above all other concerns, I'd drive my econobox instead of the wonderfully handy, multi-purpose Blazer.
all my vehicles are expensive to fill
my 73 blazer i swear gets like 4 or 5 mpg
and my 99 silverado get like 15
my bike get 40-45 mpg if i keep the rpm at around 5000 or less anything above that the second injectors kick in. dont get me wrong the 2 injectors per cylynder comes in handy when I wanna have fun! (which is most of the time so I average 40 mpg)
