I really don’t drive anything special. I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport that sadly is no longer fully grey as it was when I got it. Had an accident back in August but thankfully it runs just fine and doesn’t look to terrible. Would really like a newer jeep or something but I don’t foresee that happening anytime soon! We’ve also got a 1967 Camaro that belongs to my mom and a redone 1972 shortbed chevy pickup that my dad completely rebuilt. Used to have a 1969 Camaro but we had to sell it.

Depends on where you are in the U.S. though. Some states have really high gas prices right now. Where I’m at they’re not to bad. I don’t know what it takes to fill the tanks of our truck and camaro to be honest. I just drive the jeep, takes me about $30 to fill it from a half tank, around $45 to fill it if it’s down below half.

That is cheap it cost $AU80 to 3/4 fill a small sedan, with predictions of over $AU100 before the end of the year

On average, American cars consume more than twice as much fuel on the highway vs cars in the UK. We also have longer commutes and work more days per year. I spend $6700 per year on fuel and that is primarily just to commute to work and the gym. That’s about 20% of my annual net pay. The comparison isn’t quite as simple as just the cost of fuel. 🙂

Yep, I never really thought about the extra distances involved. mine does take over $200 to fill but my commute to central London is only 11 miles and I get like 35 miles to a gallon (4ltrs), so it lasts me probably 2 weeks of everyday driving.

Can’t learner restrictions otherwise I would.
Yamaha is the biggest cruiser I can get for two years.

If I had only got a bike license when I got a car license it would be all good.
