200 miles each way 400 total

300 dollars divided by 4.25 gallon 70.58 gallons = 5.6 miles per gallon


i think you might want to consider trading in your current vehicle.

It gets about 14 pulling a trailer.......but now you have to add in a tank of gas for the jeep seeing as it would be coming along to play with after the comp.

So $250 in the truck and $50 in the jeep.....yea, thinkin that's damn close at a $300 for gas estimate

Your carb. my trans.......complicated is an understatement!
