Re: How often

I probably use a tank of gas every 2-3 months for the Cobra for my DD every week (17 miles one way to work)

Re: How often

I fill my car about once every two weeks. We go out to eat often and we have car club activities... Both cars use premium...

Re: How often

When I DD the car about once a week..now, probably once a month or less. Really depends on how much I drive it during the season.

I usually save my truck for the winter months and ride the bike to work in the spring/summer. Costs about $11 to fill it up and it lasts over a week .

I never seem to make it past a gas station with my GT. This IS because I take the 10+ mile scenic route when coming home from a half mile down the road. I'm obsessed with driving my 'Stang and hearing the V8 roar. I think I have some weird car fetish since buying it a month ago.

Me too man! Mine belonged to a buddy who bought it brand new. I
Jumped behind the wheel & drove it around then I wouldn't stop talking about how great his ride was. I actually got him to sell it to me for pretty cheap.
