Let's see, so you drove 70 miles, to save 30 cents a gallon on gas. Assuming you get 20mpg, that would have used 3.5 gallons, and it is unlikely you ended up even saving money on the fillup (since you used about 15% of the gas in your tank to save 15% on gas). Oh well, at least it made for an exciting adventure! I guess we make any excuse to drive our Muranos! heheBoobaba said:I drive 65-70 miles a day to work between NY and NJ, gas is a lot cheaper in NJ so I generally fill up in NJ......around $2.05 for premium at a local station. NY is around $2.39 for premo gas.
Well I was supposed to get gas one evening before I left Jersey, only to find myself knee-deep into a phone converstion and foundmyself half way thru the Holland tunnel into Manhattan. At this time the DTE read 60miles to go. By the time I got home, the DTE read 20 miles. I simply refused to buy gas in NY so I went back to work (34 miles) without refueling and was so nervous that I would stall somewhere that I kept starring at the gas gauge which by this
time was below "E" and pegged out. The DTE was a * and any minute now the engine is going to sputter, cough and go silent. All I can imagine is my car coasting to a stop in the middle of the highway, telling the first cop on the scene that I ran out of gas (looking like the dumb a$$). I know it was extremely foolish over a few cents worth of gas but it became a vendetta for me.
By the time I reached the nearest service station across the Hudson river, the middle eastern gas attendant asked me how much, I was like FILL her up quick!
We both watched the pump go, and go, and go................
By the time we heard the "click" of the fuel nozzle, amazingly my MO drank 20.79 gallons at a cost of $43 bucks.....whewww!!!
:cursin: damn, it use to cost me about $28-30.
:29:Halo--- If you read his post, he didn't drive just for the gas, he was on his way to work the next day.
Last fillup for ~18.5 gallons of super at 2.46/gal was almost $50US. Unless you drive long distances and light foot it, you'll never achieve the EPA mileage ratings in any car.Tintin said:i dont own this car (yet), but out of curiosity, how much does it cost you guys (on average) to fill this car up from E to Full.
My brother has an FX35, cost him 70(cad) easy, and i am also thinking of the new pathfinder but since gas a serious factor in my decision, murano is still #1 choice.
Actually, I made it about 10km after my gauge said 5km DTE and another 14km after it read *. I was really lucky to make it to a gas station (I had long given up on making it), by driving really easy on the throttle and more slowly than usual.dillrob said:Did you ever notice that the miles to empty accelerate when you get towards 0. For instance, the MTE ticks down consistently (mile for mile) until it gets to about 10. Then, it starts to tick down 1-1/2 to 2 miles for each mile driven.
