I haven't drove the Ranger all week. Been on my Harley alot and driving our Geo when the weather sucks. Nothing over 55 on the highways and under 3000RPM before shifting. Geo's mileage is yet to be determined, I get about 40 at best on the bike and I have to run premium -Mike-

i haven't drove my truck over 60 mph or 2,000 rpms in a month. Saved me some gas. but not really enough to notice. I mean it's really not that bad. I used to fill up 2-3 times a week. It only cost me 30$ more by filling up pre week 3 times. Not that bid of a difference. maybe 10$ more per fillup or so.

I did- sort of.

I got a different job that allows me to not have to drive everywhere anymore (went from 60+ miles a day to about 5 miles a day)... plus i had to tell myself no to a larger set of tires that i was going to buy about a month ago. now im in the market for a bike, and would like to have one before the summer is over... realistically though, i don't see myself buying one till prices drop a little right before winter.

I havent really changed my driving habits. Im still hard on the pedal and going to school twice a week 65 miles round trip and work at about 25 miles round trip 4 times a week. I burn through gas pretty quick. I actually hit 305 on my last gas tank..I was amazed..it usually about 275-280.
