I'm Asking: How Much Does It Cost to Fill Up Your Gas Tank?

I'm Asking: How Much Does It Cost to Fill Up Your Gas Tank?

Sitting in traffic this weekend, I stared at the cars surrounding me thinking about how much money it takes to simply get from here to there. Maintenance costs can be highly expensive but those are occasional expenses — it's filling up the tank that can cause frustration on a more regular basis. Approximately how much does it cost you to fill up your gas tank?

I drive a tiny Renault Clio and it costs me about 70-75 Dollars (meaning between 40 and 50 Euros) and a price of almost 1,4 Euros per liter. Gas is so much more expensive here in Austria so honestly, I don't reall yget it yet how Americans can complain about paying half the price for their much bigger cars...

Ha, $35 on regular unleaded will usually take my V4 1991 Subaru Loyale over 270 miles - enough for the entire month. :)

That's when I'm REALLY glad I don't live in the U.S. It fills up, I always have about 1/4, with $250 pesos which is anywhere from $20.83 ($12x1 Dollar) to $25 (Closer to $10 x 1 Dollar). And I only need to fill it up every 1.5 weeks.

Until yesterday, it was about $50 (and I fill up 2-3 times a week - not cool!) I don't want to jinx it - but gas was just under $3 yesterday and I couldn't have been happier to fill up!

My Honda Fit is about $30-35 for 8-10 gallons and I only fill up about once every 3 weeks. God I love my fuel efficient car (living very close to work helps too!)

I drive a Mazda 3, and it costs about $50 - $60 to fill up, depending on the week, given "crisis," and where I'm filling up. I live in Seattle, and it seems like gas is typically much more expensive than most other places.

My 2 litre car costs £50 ($100+ USD) to fill up, which i have to do every single week. When my BF was driving me it was costing me £100 ($200+USD) every week which was a third of my wage. The cost of petrol here is reeeediculous!

i have a REALLY big gas tank so it's usually upwards of $55+ and it's not fun since i feel like i have to get gas more often than most. at least i leave my car in my mom's driveway except for the weekends, and then i just drive a couple miles to the gym.

The average is $50. I have a MINI Cooper with a 13.2 gastank and I use 93 octane, so it adds up. Luckily I only have to fill up every 2 weeks or so because I get 30 MPG (trying for better).

My old car (Chrysler Sebring Coupe) was around $55-60. My new Honda Fit is $32-36! Woohoo for better gas mileage (and on a smaller tank at that!)!

around or under 40, i usually fill it when i used up half the tank. i get uneasy after that because i usually drive 80 miles back home on the weekend, and what i forgot!

About $30 if I have a quarter of a tank in there. Not too bad, all things considered. I can't believe the people saying $80+! D: Do you drive a Panzer? I cannot imagine a car which requires ~20 gallons!

I never let my Saturn get below 1/4 tank, so when I fill up it costs about $30. If I let it get really close to empty, it costs more like $40. I'm really loving that lately I've been averaging 38-39 mpg per tank lately.
