    Haha - too funny. I guess a lot of people's piggy bank looks like that now w/ the gas prices and all. That's how mine looks now that I got my collarbone surgery bill.

    Yeah, except you can get more effcient diesel cars that we can't.
    Let the bitching continue...


    Another few cents per gallon and my truck will be over $100 to fill up.

    I drive a 92 Diesel Terrano, so I'm not exactly Mr. Efficient.

    I pay about 30 for a full tank on the 1979 el camino and it last about a month, due to avoidance of driving.

    I pay probably $40 for 2/3 of a tank on my 84 S10. Lasts usually 2-5weeks since the only real driving I regularly do is the 1mile round trip to school. :p (I'd ride there but I'm scared of my bike getting stolen/broken)

    Now would be the time to own one of those Smart cars that populate Europe. They get like 70 MPG on a 7 gallon tank.

    Could you do it for me and post a picture? I know what car you are talking about. They look awesome for how small they are. And they are owned by Mercedes.

    Dude, you need to get a garage sale beater and spray paint it, preferably about 3 or 4 different colors. Make sure the paint runs so it looks REALLY good. Then ride that to school. Get some Wahoo's stickers for it and make a PBR badge to put on the head tube. :thumb: You'll only have to worry about have the PBR badge stolen.

    Walk fatass.

    Or if you rode your bike and it got broken or stolen I'm sure mommy would buy a new one for ya...



    It takes about 60 bucks to fill up my 1990 S15 GMC. 20 MPG is okay with me. But it has a huge ass tank. 20 gallons...
