I find these questions extremely relevant considering the current situation in the gulf and the middle east. I just want to see how serious everyone takes the problems we have as a society at a personal level and do what they can for the better.

Ok, my questions for everyone... and my answers...

What type of car do you drive?
None (self)
Girlfriend = Mustang
How many cylinders?
6
How many miles to the gallon?
N/A
How often do you fill your tank?
1-2 times weekly.
How many miles a week do you drive?
N/A
If you are like me, and don't have/use a car, what is your preferred method of transportation?

When i can afford it i use a longboard, i also take the bus everywhere. If i need to travel further i take the train. I travel about 40 miles a day by bus. It is 20 miles to where i (work,train). I also walk about 2-4 miles a day, depending on what i am doing. When i mean when i can afford it, i mean maintaining the little bastard skateboard. I do drive around with my girlfriend a lot, but we have been taking the bus around together for a year, and i have been using the bus my whole life. I don't even have a license! I still use the bus ever single day as we work different schedules. I also have no plans in the near future of purchasing a car, nor am i working towards one.


P.S. - I understand some people my find this information private, thats fine just answer whatever it is you feel like answering. If you don't find these questions that intrusive, feel free to comment!

Nice, if it will run on biofuel, why doesn't it? I understand about availability and all if that is the reason. Would biofuel decrease the performance at all?

If it isn't available in your town, mybe this is a possible source of income for you.

Actually bio fuel has a higher octane of like 97 so yes it is actually better. I have a computer that has different programs for different fuels/octane and performance levels. The only problem with bio fuel is it needs to be warm outside so it is a summer fuel for me and is not that easy to find all the time.

Because I'm bored....

What type of car do you drive?
Suzuki Grand Vitara

How many cylinders?
4

How many miles to the gallon?
No idea, but when I bought the car it had a sticker that said I would get approx 8klm per litre.. obviously this is for highway travel because it's way less when driving in traffic (which is what most of my travel is).

How often do you fill your tank?
I never fill my tank but put $30 in 3 times a week.

How many miles a week do you drive?
No idea but I drive approximately 350 kilometers per week

*** Extra question ***
How much does fuel cost where you live?
We are currently paying $1.30 per litre for petrol here.

I ride a bike.

4 cyl

get about 20km/l
fill once a week ave.

I've kept it standard, including the emmisions reducing stuff, and it is a very efficient engine, ie it doesn' leave much of anything behind.

well here's some input from overseas..

Myself: OPEL VAN
WIfe: Audi S4
cylinders 5 and 6 respectfully

mpg (make it km per liter k?) myself: 11 km per liter diesel
wife:
5-8 km per liter gas
weekly miles.
myself: when working I drive about 600miles a week
wife: 10 miles? thats pushin it

I just hate the bus or train (you'd understand after 1 week of dutch public transportation)

Oh kinda relevant diesel and gas prices:

diesel 1,21 euro per liter 1,51 in dollars
petrol 1,55 euro per liter 1,94 in dollars (in 2004 I tanked petrol for 1, 47 dollar)
Holland is just completely wacko with gasprices. I believe well over 70 percent is taxes

I think i am going to calculate how much we spend collectively on gas. I am going to include my bus fares in on that calculation. Let's just say $3.00/g across the board.

My transport:

2003 SEAT Leon 1.9TDi 130bhp.

Mileage since new 131,000

Reliable, quick, plenty of that diesel engine torque when needed.


MPG - currently averaging about 58MPG

Miles per week - usually between 500 - 600 (500 of that is the 100 mile commute each day)

How much for fuel - currently paying £1.21 / Litre

I keep thinking of maybe changing to a newer car, but with that MPG figure I see no reason to so will probably keep the car for now.

1998 oldsmobile intrigue

mpg; 19/22
miles per week: around 350-370
fill up every 5 days or so, id say the average price is 3$ a gallon but it has dropped since.

I would love to be able to ride my bike, or take a train/bus but we have no such transportation here. There are busses but they are very localized and dont go far at all, only between 2-3 towns.

I am looking into a cobalt (34~ mpg) or an escape hybrid if i can afford it next year.

yup, those 1.9 diesels are almost historic in europe... even the 150bhp version still as AWESOME mileage... I'm thinking of trading in the audi for one of those... just like you said they're pretty darn quick to!!

seriously england pays that much for diesel? do you get the "v-power"for that or just regular?
