FUEL FUEL FUEL FING FUEL. 81.85 a tank. I'm fill like two tanks a week. I HATE IT! 81.85 use to be huge when i was a little kid; and it still is huge. that one week on gas can go to so many different things, credit cards, insurance, car payment, RENT! hell school, books, new lap top, my cell phone that i hold together with my fingers to connect the speaker because somehow it is no longer connected to the wire. sorry just wanted to rant :crybaby2:

Even with the euro I have been able to cut my cost buy adding warren octane booster available at the dollar store for a buck. Regular is 3.61 and 93 is 3.99 that's 38cents more a gallon. so for 20 gallons 93 cost 7.20 more. so I save $6.20 every tankfull. It's been work no pinging but the summer will be the test.

It was inevitable and will get worse. I burn homemade biodiesel in the warmer months here in South Dakota for $1/gallon but in the end, that's not the answer either. I really love these diesel cars and wish they were the solution to the big problem but in the end, I'm afraid we're all obsolete. In another 10 years when fuel is $10 or more per gallon, this will be an 'electric car' forum....and maybe that's the way it should evolve.

What will my kids use for fuel?!
