Works out to 72 MPG...Sometimes AVIS gives me the Prius...it doesn't seem like I get anywhere near that. More like 50 MPG

EDITED: I just re-read and saw that you have the Civic..that's quite a bit smaller that the Prius I believe...apples and oranges I guess.
Last time I filled up it was at 3.40/gallon a few weeks ago.

However, I filled up today and it was $45. I did give a range, and generally my tank isn't totally empty when I fill up, so the $ is a little less than for a full tank (and so I should also say the miles a little less). I'm not going to do the math, but I can generally get close to 600 miles on one tank, esp if I'm doing mainly highway driving.

$70.00 to fill up.
Gas lasts about 1 week, depending on how much I run around after work.

Used older cars like the Geo Metros are going up in price. Who would have thought that piece of junk years ago, especially a car would actually "appreciate".
