How Often Do You Do It?

Mon Apr 19, 2004 11:12 pm

I do it about 3 times a month, sometimes 4 if I use her more often.

So how often do you fill up you car ?.

Usually about every 4-5 days. I don't get very good gas mileage.

4 times per month, once a week. We get about 520 km on a full (68L) tank.

Usually about 3 or 4 times a month. But with the prices going up like they are, I'm going to either have to cut down on driving everywhere, or stop filling up so much.

Probably 2 or 3 times a month. Some weeks we can go with only doing 30-40 miles and others we'll have done 800 so its kinda dependent on where whoever is driving it has driven it to... Big grin

Stop whining!
What does that total up to, $90 for 4 full tanks???

Here it is more like $75 for EVERY full tank.

Yup, its about £25 ($45) to fill up the tank here (35 litre I think), and that'll last about 300-350 miles depending on what sort of driving you're doing. I think the current prices can be as low as £0.79 ($1.41) per LITRE to £1 ($1.80) per LITRE.

It sucks.

Twice a week usually. It sucks when you have a V6 and drive about 70-80 miles daily.

But I plan on filling her up about once a week this summer

About twice a month, always fill my little car up on payday (thursday yippee!!) and half way through the month. It's a little bit low on juice at the moment, just under a quarter of a tank, but that will last me for another two days.

At the moment once in a month because I am in between two jobs and I don't have to drive every day. From May probably every week, than I have to drive every day because I will start working again.

I was really really lucky during the fuel blockades a couple of years ago, I lived so close to work that it was nearer to get the bus than drive to the staff car park, (and bus was free). I had a full tank of petrol in my car for the whole of the crisis, but it didn't affect me.

In the UK we have the cheapest petrol in Europe, but the amount of tax that is slapped ontop makes it amongst the most expensive.

About three or four times a month.

Less in the summer when I don't have to drive in to school.

I top off

DAILY!

it's the last thing I do at night before I pull over to the side of the road for a well deserved sleep. I mean after all my "car" is a Peterbilt! My truck has two 150 gallon side tanks, I get about 7-9 MPG. And I drive over

Seeing as how public transportation here is next to nil (I could take the bus some places, but it takes roughly 5 to 6 times as long as driving there myself for the places I go)....

I fill up my SUV up about every three to four days at minimum just off of local driving, normally about $23 each time.
