I spend between $90 and $100 a month. I fill up once every 2 weeks at Shell using Shell V-Power 91 octane.

250 right now ( 50 mile commute total + school in other direction).

Moving soon and will only have a 12 mile commute though, it feels life changing! As soon as I signed my lease I started to loath the drive to my current home.

Around $200 on the focus. Other cars are around $150 depending on time of year.

That's why I have a Focus. I drive around 30k a year and that gets expensive in anything.

How do you guys only pay $100~200 a month on gas? I'm presuming the mustang isn't your daily driver then. My stang is a daily driver and I probably fill gas 5 or 6 times a month which equates to about $250~$300 a month on gas.

Depends on miles driven, mods, and how you drive it as well

my work/home roundtrip was only about 25miles city, so i'd fill up about every other weekend. Gas pretty cheeeep in texas, 3.13 at last look today. Dont drive her much lately since being 'reduced' back in june :/ but saving tons on gas lol

I drive 500 miles or so a week. Then again it's a Focus and 87 is cheap here. 3.02 when I filled up this afternoon.

34 mpg helps as well. I took the Cobra on a trip last weekend and spent over $100 just in gas for a weekend trip. Took the focus this weekend, will cost around $25 for the whole thing (100 miles each way plus driving around).

Some of you will now see the benefit of a beater...

Simple! My job is exactly 3.5 miles away from my house, and my college is right across the street from my workplace. On a normal day I drive to school, back home, to work, and back home. So 14 miles a day total.

As far as mods go, I've recently installed these and the 'Stang has been quite generous with gas.

About 2 tanks a month, usually around 13 gallons each fill. Average price around here for 91 has been $3.80 so that makes it just shy of $100 a month. I'm driving even less now that I'm in college.

Tonage don't want to add up lol. Gas around 3.70 for midgrade. Currently 3 part time jobs, one is 60 or so roundtrip. Other 2 about 30 roundtrip. With cigs may get 30 every couple days in jeep and 20 in stang every few. Far jobs hours are going to increase so more days. So id say...400+
