spend on petrol per week?????

Charlie,

Some weeks only spend £20 others can spend upto £80,depends whether I go out for a thrash late at night.
£ 20 can get me some serious back lane miles in when bored.

Re:How much do you guys spend on petrol per week?

I spend nothing! Claim it as fuel for my ST24. That thing does about 8 mpg, terrible fuel economy! http://www.lancerregister.com/graphics/tonguewink1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Re: How many times do you fill up

I fill up at least 3-4 times a week. An average of £29 per fill and 140-170 miles per tank.

If I drive with delicate throttle response the fuel consumption is not to bad but the temptation to floor the pedal is too great.

These cars are seriously addictive.

About 40-45 litres every two days, so about £90-110 ....and I only work 15 miles from home... or is that 45 miles? Never can remember, as the route seems to take me down a different twisty country lane every day :D

Re:How much do you guys spend on petrol per week?

Let us see,

About six months ago I boutgh my E6TME and I travelled about 14K miles since then.

Considering that the car used to do about 200-210 miles/tank I must have filled the tank
about 14,000/210 (~66.7) times. This divided by the number of months (6) that I owned
the car equals to 11.1 times per month !!! It takes about 40 pounds to fill the tank so I
reckon that the average cost for me per month was around 40*11.1 ~ £444.4 per month !!!

My God, I need to get a diesel car !

I fill up once a week, normally about £35 but I only use it at the weekend.

I guess on average I spend about £50 a week on gas however I once got through £98 worth in a day on a long journey. (3 fill-ups)

It is a pain having such a limited range but having said that if we all had 80 litre tanks we would all be moaning about the excess weight and would only half-fill anyway.

I've got a bit of a problem in this field actually. I have this habit of attracting gay men, which as a straight guy is a little bit taxing at times. The pretty girl who used to work in the Shall garage just down the road has now been replaced by this gorilla who quite frankly wants a bit so a trip to the garage is now a 10 mile affair to the next town. Still at least when I say I'm just going for a 'fill-up' it's only my fuel tanl we are talking about.
