Cost me $75 @1.02/ L from empty for my 3.5L

Really thinking of a 4 cylinder for my next car...

16-17L/ 100km

A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Gas is cheap now, especially filling up premium at Costco.

48L tank on the winter beater. Wishing we had today's gas prices in the summer (91 octane) when the summer car was still out.

A more useful question would be how long will a full tank last you. :)

It costs me 75$ or so a tank but it can last me 2 weeks.

What a pointless question. Everyone's tank is different. A good question is what MPG do you get for a car that meets your needs, but that question is easily answered with quick google search.

Also, the size of the engine has nothing to do with the size of the fuel tank, so that's another irrelevant statement. If the cost of gas bothers you, then the only valid consideration is the MPG of the car.

paying for gas is for losers.....fill up and leave without paying FTW!

Seriously though, what a craptastic thread....it's become an epidemic.

Bonus points for driving away with the nozzle still in your vehicle.

Regarding OP, gas is cheap now, so I've had to adjust my driving to ensure I still pay the same $/km (i.e. more fun).

73.8L tank but in BC, our gas is $1.40 avg. So a fill-up be like $80-100. Mileage is not great but manageable, hovering around 12L/100kms.

My 18 GMC only has a ~100L tank, but lately, I just fill $75 at a time, usually from about 1/8 of a tank remaining. I have a short in-town commute.
