Throttle has 2 positions, On or off ;D ;D ;D ;D

But whats 5 litres going to do?
Do you walk/bike/bus evrywhere?

i just use my car on the weekends, during the week i'm at uni, and can't afford Parking, let along gas to go to Uni... when i need to use the car, i put sufficient gas in...

Your best to fill it up and top it up when it gets to half way. It will cost you less in the long run and wont pick up all the crap from the bottom of the tank.

problem is getting that 100 bux to fill up the tank... you are right tho...

yeh $100 to fill as well, at least the mileage is reasonable, i get about 500-550 a tank, not like the lancia i used to have, lucky to get 200mi out of a 60 litre tank..... and it was only a 1600... glad i'm not filling that up anymore.

The Haynes manual for my '85 80 says 68l, my handbook says 75, yet I have put in 78 before. Makes no difference, it's been more than $100 for a while.

EDIT: Let's assume that the tank was 70l, my city consumption being under 10l/100km would mean I should see at least 700k to a tank. I normally fill up when she gets down to around a 1/4 tank(accuracy of guage notwithstanding), and the odo shows around 600-650 kms.

well. we have bought it on ourselves... the more we use petrol the more prices are going to rise.. Petrol WILL be 2.50 before the end of this year unless the population puts their foot down..

The more we let or stupid left wing govt push us round.. the more Tax they are going to recieve from us the suckers.. they are clipping the ticket on 54cents per litre (not including GST on the petrol too..) and not a dollar of that is going to roads..  >:(

i think that's the problem, we already are. ;)



i look at it this way, per litre petrol costs less than milk and yet has much more massive costs associated with production.

My thoughts on that are that Milk should be cheaper than petrol! After all I drink a litre of the stuff a day.
