    I drive much less because of the high gas prices. How have gas prices affected you?

    yes, I skipped needless trips. Fuel prices keep on getting ( 1,50 per liter) worse over here. I'am thinking of converting the car to LPG.

    Sounds like it's the perfect solution. If you want to be left alone, let her shop at Walmart. At least she's not shopping nieman marcus.

    Shaving kit...what a bargain at only $100.00 before shipping

    I only use my vehicle when I need to. I walk the 2 blocks to Wally World instead of drive there unless I need a lot of things.

    Default Driving habits

    I'm still trying to do all those little things to keep the mpg's up. The tahoe has only been driven twice in the last two months. All the work has fallen on the 6 banger chevy malibu. With gas prices somewhat lower now, using the extra savings so i can take the tahoe and camper out on vacation this summer when gas prices get back to the 4 to 5 dollar range. With a very snowy winter here, i've really missed the tahoe's 4x4 but have made due. Also here the roads are really get rough from potholes and years of neglect so that also makes slowing down an added bonus to saving gas.

    I still see so many people wasting gas with the fast starts, high speeds, hard braking, ect. Not only wasting fuel and increasing wear and tear but all that added stress. Oh well, some don't care i guess.
