Default How much to fill up your tank?

I have an acadia and to fill up at 1.34/L for the amount of driving I do a week, it's roughly $100/week. Just wondering if people out there are willing to share how much they're spending on gas? It would be an interesting comparison.

Don't know. When I see the little light go on I tell my hubby. The next morning the tank is full again.

I'm close to $100/week too. I drive a Pontiac Vibe GT and commute from St.Catharines to Dundas/Bronte. I normally get ~8L/100km.

$600 last week.

Just put another $138 in the van tonight.

I think my rates are going to go up, because this is starting to hurt

I empty out 63.4 liter tank on a five day driving. Until i started Hypermilling. Now i get six to seven days driving from home to work. Nevertheless, the prices of gas still hurts my pocket. I should have bought a compact car instead of an SUV.

2008 Land Rover LR2 cost about $65 per tank at $1.34 reg. gas . At these prices I'm not putting in premium. $30 can get me to work( Burlington - Oakville/403) all week.

2002 LR Freelander haven't filled it up in a while because it's for sale. Used to take $45 at about $1.20 per litre reg.

1993 Toyota Camry V4. We only have 1 car and car-pool with the wife in the morning to work so about $50 every week.

Just wondering if these crazy gas prices are impacting your plans to travel in the summer...we will probably take less road trips and will look at trains as an option.
