Probably can make a tank of gas last me about a week and a half right now. Limited our trips to the store but I still have to work 5 days a week so at least 1 of our cars is still getting somewhat regular use while the other barely leaves the garage.

IMG_20200425_141310070_HDR.jpg I fill up my truck every few months ( Ride a motorcycle to work 90% of the time). But I did fill up yesterday.

End of Feb, and I still have half a tank. I got an email from Subaru that says you need to drive your car every 3 weeks or it shuts off all the electronic systems so your battery won't completely die. So you would have to reset all your settings.

Every couple of days. 70 mile round trip/5 days a week at less than 17mpg... I'm taking Mother Nature down with me one tank at a time.

I did top it off in early April, we had 1.65 in fuel saver that was about to expire, so we topped of my car, my wife's car, and our other car for $15.00.

Will have to fill it up this week since the 15 year old has been driving since drivers education starts back up next week.

11 days - April 15th. Have almost half of a tank left.

I'm still driving to work 5 days a week, groceries 1 day a week, and once or twice a week I'll take my dog to an open space area where he can run off leash.

My last vehicle, I was filling at least once a week on only slightly more miles. Went from about 13 mpg to about 28 mpg.

Still once a week on the work truck. My personal vehicle only got driven one day a week prior to this entire thing happening so I'd go 6-8 weeks easily (and still do).

Put gas in my wife's car about 2 weeks ago, and it was only at 3/4 of a tank then. That was a much crazier time, it felt, so I was keeping both cars full "just in case."

We have over $3 per gallon in fuel savers that will likely expire before we need them.

I think last time I filled up was around March 20 and I still have a little more than half a tank. Don't go to the office, no kids activities, grocery store is less than a mile away.

Just a suggestion, maybe you can use that fuel saver as sort of a "pay it forward" and give somebody a free tank of gas. There are lot of families out there hurting with this shut down. I'd look for a family type vehicle, might be a little awkward in the approach but well worth it in the end. IMO

Just filled up for the first time in 2 months. I’ve ran into the office a handful of times (8 miles away) and the grocery/Home Depot are both less than a mile.
