Yeah tell me about it...23 mile one way commute, then I drive a lot on the weekends. I keep kicking myself for selling my accord after I bought the truck. DOH! ...but at the time I needed the cash to resolve a money situation with my ex g/f. Had to pay her for the furniture in my house that she paid for.

Well my fingers are crossed for a company car sometime within the next year. Then I will go to filling up once every two weeks.
