    Just be glad you are not a Jehovah's Witless out in field circus. Well Wtwizzard I used to spend 150.00 a month in service back in the late 80's for gas. I'm too tired to try to figure it out. But we are now at $1.12 per litre x 4.5 litres per gallon.=$5.04 per gallon. P.S. Did I say I hate Firefox,I can highlight, can't paragraph, can't double space on this computer.

    BFD, life is getting always dearer but petrol for you is less than half price compared to the UK. Now for a driver that fills up say with 40L per week the tax paid is £26.40 and over a year it becomes £1372 = $2744 which is a lot of money.

    And 20 cigarettes cost typically £5.50 and out of that £4.22 is tax. Someone smoking 20 per day will pay £1540 of cigarette tax in a year.

    It's a country that likes taxing heavily.

    I gave up my car six months ago when I moved back to NYC. I figure I save over $200 per month just on gas not to mention car payments, insurance, and maintenance. Also, if I had a car in Manhattan I would pay at least $350 per month for parking.

    The added benefit is that I walk a lot more.

    R.Crusoe- A myth busters episode recently ran a diesel car on recycled kitchen oil. Yep, went to a fast food place, strained out some of their used oil and the car ran fine. Now that's an alternative fuel the industry really doesn't want to get out! -Potential
