This thread makes me listen to Miami....


We got the wheels, petrol is cheap
We only went there for a week...


By the way 250 pesos one tank, and I can go and come back from Acapulco.

yes, gas prices suck

I drive a 1986 oldsmobile and I pay around $22 a tank, the gas prices here are $1.39 a gallon right now but they will skyrocket by the weekend. It truly sucks the big one but what can you do?

and the Sunshine Coast (90ks north of Brisbane) is generally even cheaper than Bris Vegas!!!!!

I have an 84 mazda 323 and whilst it runs on super (leaded fuel) I generally only put about 20 bucks in a week and that is almost a full tank and I do heaps of driving, cause the sunshine coast is a very long place where one most definetley needs a car, but in the past I have had very un-economical cars and that sucked big time and since my first car which was a fuel chewer my number one priority with cars is fuel efficiency and my mazda does this well- like the other week I drove down to Brisbane for the weekend and did heaps of driving around the city for $15- cool hey!!!!

I had a '97 monte carlo in great shape and great gas mileage, but I got in an accident and totaled it. Some dumb chick who was stoned out of her mind ran a stop sign and t-boned me doing about 60! Let me say this "that will leave a mark!"

hopefully i will be able to get my beetle...because i want to get the diesel one. diesel around here is as much or cheaper than regular unleaded, and i'll get 50 mph!

(although i wish i could afford a hybrid, you get a $2000/year tax cut in america!)

I just have to say..
Monte Carlo? totalled?
I had never heard of a monte carlo until last week. My son says he would like one. There is one parked in a yard near here, and hes been covetting thy neighbours monte carlo. So that seems a very sad story to me Kari.(they don't sound terribly fuel efficient to me)

and KR? a beetle. I was having a chuckle on the weekend, thinking back to my senior high school days.I realised ALL my friends drove VW beetles, some straight, some modified , some dune buggies. My goodness, what a posse and what a noise we must have made without realising it.
btw i paid 96c per litre for super gas at my local store this morning
it's still cheaper than orange juice, a thing that surprises me.

hub reads up on alternate fuels a lot( why doesn't he but "interesting magazines"? Electronics Today International...I ask you!!)
There is some really promising R&D going on, but it's the manufacturing cost. They are still unable to make it affordable. Give us time...nanobes might prove to be a fuel source.
anyway, that's enough methane per 1 cass story


and a few less typos would save on fuel too......sorry

When I went to Europe this summer I was shocked by the gas prices. For what it takes me to fill up my Nissan Maxima (about $24) it would cost about 85-90 in Europe!! Just thinking about that situation makes me dizzy.
