What do you drive that only holds $30 worth of gas? A moped? :-o

Either that, or where are you getting gas so cheap at?

Pretty good gas mileage ~30/g

I never top it off anymore. I guess I think if I only buy it a 1/4 tank at a time it'll end up costing me less somehow. :-D


Cost less? Umm.....suuuuuuuuuuuuuure. ;-7

Nah, even using that guy I've been misunderstood, so it's just easier to use whichever I feel like and toss in the disclaimer :-b .

Not bad at all for a '92. ;-D Both my cars get 30+ as well. Never been too fond of wasting money on gas guzzlers. B-)

I'm at half a tank and so is the wife so we didn't get gas. Does putting gas from a can in your mower count? I didn't buy it today so it shouldn't right?

Honestly, I think this is a bit of a ridiculous concept. People don't generally buy a tank of gas a day. I usually buy a couple 17-gallon tanks a week. If I was interested in this program I'd just fill up the day before or something. A more effective, but probably less successful, program would have been to simply not burn gas for one day. Like that smoke-out day they used to do, or maybe still do.

Where's FireballExpress been anyway?

I don't own a car, but I thought this was such a ridiculous idea that I went to the gas station and filled up my Zippo yesterday just out of spite.

I considered doing it just to spite this e-mail, but then I realized that was dumb.

I'm not getting gas today because I don't need it. Shake in fear, Exxon.

This is the second thing we've agreed on in about a month.

What's going on? Are certain planets coming into alignment or something?

How about this for a concept. A gas station that only sells American gas. No foreign oil.

Would you pay an extra $0.30 per gallon for American gas?
