Daily driver. I would have to update this daily due to gas prices to be legit. Gas is usually around $3.15 a gallon here in Springfield Missouri. I usually hold just under 14 gallons and spend about $44.80. I average around 17 MPG. If your purpose is to save gas I have a Yamaha XT 250 basically a street legal dirt bike. It gets 73 MPG. And carries as much as a Prius

When she was my DD, I drove about 100 miles a week. Would go through about 25-30 a week. Gas currently is around 3.50 a gallon.

With my new dd...i go through 30 bucks every 2-3 weeks in that and i actually got 20 bucks to last me almost a month and a half in the jeep haha (i only drove it 4 times over the last month and a half...two of those times were today and yesterday lol).

Daily driver for me, I fill up about every other week for around $40 give or take. Sometimes more but I try not to let it get past 1/4 of a tank left.

40 miles a day. About 30 stop lights to and from work. 55,45,35,25 MPH zones. Stop and go, hard on the acceleration. I work about 6 days a week. Sometimes 2 weeks straight. About one fill up a week. Gas is averaging $3.30 here in northwest Florida. So $55-60 a week.

DD. I drive to and from work daily 44.5 miles. I work swing shifts so I don't drive the same amount of days each week. I can usually get close to 6 days on a tank of gas but I'm also running mud terrain tires on the hwy which is killing my fuel mileage. Gas here in Kingsport TN is around $3.19/gl

Daily driver. Gas prices usually between $3.50 and $3.80 per gallon. I mainly drive around my small town and spend about $40 a week. I think I get about 14 mpg but have never really calculated it.

Not sure what this question accomplishes, I went from 500 miles a week to 200 a month so who really cares.

As soon as it's warm enough to take the hardtop off my MPG's will probably go up a few but I'll spend more on gas because I probably won't stop driving for a week after the winter we've had here this year.

Funny how life works sometimes
