Default re: How often do you fill up?

I fill up twice a week , about 38 dollars ,as I put on approx . 300 miles per fill up which is pretty good . My Ram 1500 used to take about 75.00 ( twice a week ) in this economy of 3.15 a gallon .

I don't know how accurate this info is, but i always heard that a lighter car consumed less gas to drive, so having a full tank all the time means you spent more?
dont know how to add a poll if someone could that would be great

Default re: How often do you fill up?

Since I've been out of high school its been almost every three weeks or so because when I'm at school I don't drive it much and in the summer I had a 5 minute commute to work.

In high school I filled up at least once a week; driving to school, work, friends, hockey.

I wait until the last possible to fill up and usually put 70L+ in my 73.8L tank... I've filled up 67 times in 320 days so about every 5 days.

Default re: How often do you fill up?

almost once a month, even in the winter when my car is hibernating. My commute to work is only 5 miles round trip, and I don't do much driving. I bought my car 3 years ago with 50k on the clock, and now it only has 67k. 17k in 3 years is nothing. I've had the truck for over a year now and have only put 6k on it which includes a 2k drive home.
