I used to drive a 3.6 litre Jaguar XJS - €80 to fill the tank ($103)
It did around 15 mpg.

Luckily I saw sense and got rid of it.

Oddly enough I received this in an e-mail, and although I arrive at this thread as a late bloomer, I don't think it's too late for a little humor.


Compared with Gasoline

Think a gallon of gas is expensive? This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ........ $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ...........$9.52 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 .... $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 . $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 . $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 .... $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ...... .. $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 ...$84.48 per gallon

And this is the REAL KICKER...

Evian water 9 oz $1.49..........$21.19 per gallon?! $21.19 for WATER - and the buyers don't even know the source. (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)
Ice cream 1/2 gallon $4.99 to $5.99......$9.98 to $11.98 per gallon

So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, or God forbid Pepto Bismal or Nyquil.
