We have a brand new volvo XC and we are spending approx. $75 to fill it, but we don't drive very far with it so it lasts a couple of weeks. If I make 1 trip to the city however (we live in Barrie) I use about a quarter of a tank....if not more.

On the other hand, we have a diesel jetta and diesel is now more expensive than gas! When we first bought it, it cost us $30.00 to fill it (it is 4 years old), but now it costs almost as much as the volvo! The only difference with it, is that we can get 1300 kms to the tank, which is amazing! When I was commuting to the city everyday, I would fill up once every 2 weeks! We have loved that car for gas milage value.

80$ fill-up lasts me for 3 days. Commute 176km to work and back everyday. But I would not give-up my truck for nothing in the world. Well, maybe for an identical diesel truck, but can't get it in north-america
