    Everyone could buy motorcycles.. My HHR gets 28-33 mpg. I guess I would buy a bigger gas tank and hide it.

    Smile Gas prices in Sweden.

    Hi!
    I undestand your concern.
    In Sweden we pay about $6.25/Gallon and i have a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer.
    I guess you can say that i must be crazy, and maybe so, but the car is absolutely fantastic. Also i have a bad back and the car is high and quite nice to drive. I would like to use E85, but I'm not sure i can. The engine is quite modern so it should go with a software update.

    Well I think I'd find out what welfare line up the oil executives were in so I could point at them and laugh. That would be more satisfiying to me.
    I would say remember raising gas prices before long weekends? Who's laughing now pumpkin!

    Damn that's expensive! How many miles/kilometers do you do a year? At those rates I'd be spending $150 a week for gas just for work, not to mention going to NH every other weekend!

    I'm troubled by the fact that in every post you feel the need to say that it's not a joke. I'm also thinking your only purpose for visiting this board is to low level spam us to death with your posts about MPG Caps.
    Do you have anything else besides that to contribute to the board?
