I'm riding my motorcycle now as much as possible (45 MPG) and the truck (10 mpg) that used to be my daily driver is only moving when I need it.

How is it affecting you?

Not affecting me now that I have figured out that my e-brake has been dragging and that is the reason I was down to 9-10 mpg in the truck. Now I am up to 16-17 again.... So for me, the price of gas just went down....

Although I am driving White Lightning for all of my daily commutes and it gets about 34mpg.... :thumb:

How many times do I need to tell you, NOT to light your stinky gas farts by that ford to fire it up! Just go to the bathroom and take care of it. :mrgreen: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

the Blazer gets about 5MPG rather it is floored or not (but it sounds GREAT) as the cop told me (mark THE Baby sitter) it was floored when i got pulled over in RIGBY thank God he is AJ's neighbor and cut me a break this one time only! he said. . .

the jeep gets about 18 if danielle drives 11 for some reason with me driving. . .

the honda gets 38 with danielle driving and about 22 if i drive (she dont let me drive that offten)

my feet get the worst about 8 beers to the barbeque and one soda to the sofa. . .

on the side note timed the blazer with the help of shelley's finest and from stop sign to the next one city block was at about 58 MPH and i did not have it teched out that high only at about 3400RPM's i wanna see what that motor is going to be like in the CAMERO

when I drove from CA in the new towrig, it was crazy - gas was $2.75 for the cheap stuff :scared:

The towrig gets 8MPG
The jeep get 16MPG so I drive the jeep to work still

It would cost nearly $100.00 to fill the towrig so it sits at home so I have :beer: :beer: $$$

My tow rig 17 mpg loaded and about 19-20 unloaded, I really can't complain tooo much, except the Toy 4 banger only gets about 6-7. And at the sand dunes, well lets just not talk about that! It is still worth the $$$ cuz it is still cheap fun! Till something breaks!

I am glad the company pays for the gas to get to work and back. I have no idea what the mileage on the 70 blazer is, the wife's car gets 26mpg and she drives 50 miles a day.

It's a lot better for me since I changed jobs. Although it does still hurt to pay $56 with the company card to fill up the truck. :scared:

I hardly drive my own truck anymore, mainly cause I go to work, come home and go to bed then start over.

Right now gas is ranging from 1.93-1.97 around here.
