i would say from when the needle is lined up with the mark, maby and i stretch maby 40-50k...in the city.....on highway....10-20k lol

i do the o shit is out of gas test......take off from a light and depending how hard i am on the skinny peddle it studders. and thats how i determine how far i go... if im on the highway i dont go under 1/4.

IIRC, 15 km is recommended. I've squeezed close to 60 km once and I know it was sucking fumes at that point but I had no choice.. LR

Must be spring break or something, its even cracking $1.15/L at the cheap spots out here too. I'm used to $1.07/L being bad, this is just ridiculous. Downtown Vancouver's apparently cracking $1.30/L right now from what I hear.. LR
