Do I drive a Hummer?

NO! I don't, but taking a look at this picture, it feels like I do:

 

 

I don't drive very often, but when I do, it's my trusty 2000 Honda Civic and it gets pretty great mileage. I almost never drive it all the way to empty, so needless to say I was bowled over when I filled up and it cost me $48.40...

Oh yeah, and it's just basic unleaded...nothing fancy.

We have a mini-van because I drive a lot of big things around (when not using my scooter). From empty to full yesterday: $90.

 

Arrrrgh. Luckily I only fill it up about every 3 weeks. Can you imagine all the people who drive SUV's, Mini-vans and other large cars DAILY?????? I couldn't imagine $90 per week. I would die.

isn't the gas tank capacity of a 2000 civic 11.9 gallons....? the reason i ask is because my '87 did and '96 does. wikianswers says 11.9  for a 2000.  i hope there is more to the story than a gas station ripping you off...

First off - great catch! I did a quick look and found this article:

It claims that the tank is actually 13.6 gallons...interestingly it also say in the gas calculations that they drove it with 14.4 gallons at one point...not sure how that works.

 

Anyway, I got all excited for a second thinking we had a scandal on our hands, haha.
