    I still use my suburban when I need to, but for light loads, I strapped a milk carton on the rear of my bicycle. I keep the tank on my burb buried on full, so where $10 will easily top it off

    as for my GMC van, gonna try and trade it for an 87-91 Buick Le Sabre/Park Avenue
    and my 82 Regal, I'm gonna enjoy myself in that!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know about everyone else, but I have to budget for Gasoline now. Just wanted to see how everyone else is still doing on this topic.
