Haven't owned a gas hog since the '60's.

Hey, Andini, I drive a Fit, too. We took it on a 300-mile day trip this weekend, averaged 41mpg. Sure wish the pickup would do that. I once put over $100 worth of ethel in that thing. She wasn't happy.

I used the fit to commute to Lenexa for a coupla years, usually averaged about 33mpg. The trip this last weekend surprised me. Mixed town/highway driving usually gets around 29 mpg.

Don't worry boutit. Every farmer can tell you all the times it has happened to them. Most of them giggle like teenagers when telling about the 'cute little city gal that conned him outa a gallon of gas'. "Cept for my FIL. Anybody that shorts him a nickel gets their whole fam damily condemned for all future generations. I like to make him squirm boutit.

Last month I took the F-250 in to get gas. When the pump hit $100 I shut it off. The gauge showed full but probably could have taken a couple of more gallons. Luckily I only use the truck a fraction of what I used to. Should last me until mid July.

My Honda Civic takes about $40 to fill. I can drive it for weeks running normal errands like grocs and laundry. I take the bus otherwise. The University has some deal worked out with the bus people so it costs me nada.

Had to get rid of my nighttime car though (Towncar). The pimp mobile had to go.

It only takes around $40.00 to fill my Hummer ever since I replaced the engine with an after market Prius one.

We borrowed the in-laws truck to go camping a couple weeks ago and filled it up before we took it back--to the tune of $75 and it still had a quarter of a tank before we filled it. Made me appreciate the Taurus.

We were down in the S/E part of state the past 4 days, average price down there was around $3.70 range, when we were coming home through Garnett Ks, regular gas was $3.49----- you bet I filled up there

My '93 Surburban has 42-gal tank. Ugh!

dogsandcats 6 years, 9 months ago

I'm pretty sure the most I ever paid was the last time I filled up. $48.73. I usually don't let my tank get too empty, but this time I did. I don't understand people who drive large vehicles as their everyday transportation. What a waste of money!

Multi -

Maybe you can make a donation in the amount you owed the farmer to an area agency like Meals on Wheels or any other of your choosing. I had a similar feeling about someone helping me out (except they wouldn't let me re-pay them), so when I could, I donated the equivalent in their name.

Just an idea...

Here you go Mult - The Farm Aid concert is in KC in August. They have a link at the top right hand cormer for donations. I'm sure they'll gladly take a couple of dollars.

I did not chose to drive my Ford Windstar, it was given to me. It is a large, heavy, and I believe very safe minivan. I fill the tank on the last day of every month which was today, and it cost $17.49.

But, I had only driven 75.3 miles this month.

Technically not 'gas'. Try filling 2 250-gallon tanks on a Freightliner. A couple grand will do it.

Ron Holzwarth 6 years, 9 months ago

I'm sure that's true, but if you calculate the cost by the number of tons transported each mile per gallon, I'm sure you're doing a lot better than any car on the road!

labmonkey 6 years, 9 months ago

Probably about $70 for and individual tank in the Colorado when gas got over $4/gal.. Back in '08 when I had the lawn service, there were times I had some $120 trips to the gas station when I filled my truck, mowers, and gas cans. I would take up two pumps with my truck and trailer of mowers.

The Colorado is still my daily driver and I have a 100 mile daily commute to work... but I don't complain since I have a good job and all my vehicles are long paid for.

Shane Garrett 6 years, 9 months ago

Really surprised on the run last week to Saint Louis and back. The six cylinder 2002 monte carlo made 32 mpg heading east and 29.4 heading back west. But it still cost $50 to fill it up.
