about a gallon a day for work, i've stopped going out for lunch because that was bascially another gallon


then add in going to school and getting food, so i probably burn 2-3 gallons of gas a day in the liberty.

42 miles round trip. 19.5 mpg average per tank mixed = $.20 a mile with diesel at $3.99. Basically $8 a day. Would be better if I just went to work and back.

About a 25 mile round trip for work, roughly $5 a day for the old Cummins

To top off the H1 before the Easter trip was $124.00 and it already had about 1/2 in the reserve and almost a 1/4 the main. It's around $200 if there both low enough for the fuel light to come on
