Re: Ouch!!!!!

Man $4.09 for diesel. The worst I've seen it in Arkansas where I live is $3.53/gallon. A $500 fill up is my car payment and insurance for the month.

LMFAO "oh i thought i didn't need that" i bet in your head you were like "go kick your mom in the ass for me when you get home " 08mazda2.0

Re: Ouch!!!!!

I am going to be really sad when gas prices go up enough that a fillup on my 3 is $50+. My ususal fill up is 10-11 gallons.

Stephanie, we calculate it out at 5mpg, sometime we get 6 to 6.5 but to be safe we stick with the 5mpg figure. So figuring on that number I can run 1500 miles on 300 gallons on straight level roads but pulling the hills with 40k lbs mpg drops to about 2-3 so in reality I manage 1200 miles to a tank.

Premium unleaded in Atl is running 3.39 per gallon, so to fill up my MS3 runs me roughly $40-$45
