I usually go 2 months on a tank. I last filled up on April 11, in anticipation of a longish trip on the 12th that I didn't end up taking. I think I've only driven a couple of miles since then! It will be really interesting to see how long this tank lasts!
we go out about once every 3-4 weeks. The farthest trip we take is 50 miles each way, we do that once a winter. The rest are trips of 30 to 50 miles. We have a minivan with a 25 gal. tank. Gets fairly good mileage for a minivan.
This would never work for me! I drive about 800 miles a week for work, crazy I know, but I drive a Prius & get .565 cents per mile & I am able to stop by the store, pick up dry cleaning en route home, so I never have to pay for gas to run my errands since I am able to complete these task without adding miles it works out!
Well I kind of blew yesterday! I was trying to plan my route and get all my errands done in line and while I did a big thing happened.
I went to antique store and then to the feed store and then to home depot and lowes and then walmart then sams and then home. They all go along a route for the most part and lowes home depot sams and walmart are all in the same block.
The problem. I bought so much wood and dirt it was too heavy for my car so I had to leave half of it and my dd, drive allllll the way home and then back and then home again....dang!
I need to buy a Prius. I drive all over the place for work. I think I fill up at least 2 times a week! I don't think this car is too good on gas. It only takes 10 gal or so on fill-up. There is something wrong with the gauge or tank that tells when it is full. I have to always be careful to not let it get too low.
