ok today, driving probably less than 50 miles i used 15$ in gas. that was say...8 gallons, so thats 6mpg or so. Lets say 7mpg. THAT IS AWEFUL I USED 15$ TODAY AND I HAD TO PUT ANOTHER 10$ IN BEFORE I CAME HOME way too much for gasoline. so im faced with a dilema. I want to keep my truck. i want to work on it, learn on it, drive it into the ground and build it up again forever. But i need a super fuel economic car. But i have no $. So here is my plan. I will get a modest job. Drop the k5 from insurance, let her sit. Immediately buy a fuel friendly vehicle, drive it for work until i am making enough to pay for the k5. Sound like a plan? Im in a funny situation right now. I dont have a job, because i have no time to get one. I am baby sitting and driving my sister around almost every day. The days i have off, im doing this or that for my parents. Any advice? Sister mom and dad all work, so i get money from them for running their errands. But i am still broke and owe some people lots. being 19 is great.
