so how far can you get in first gear in 4lo

staying in first in my 03 rubicon which gets 15mpg (2600 rpm at 65 mph

according to my math (which you must forgive I had limited time so its not very precise.
0.729922918237364950987234587238572fart0865121 mpg

.73 miles x 19 gal

13.87 miles total range LoL add a 5gal gerry can and Youd get an extra 3.65 miles

my daily commute 28 miles each way 56 total would take 76.71 gallons

or cost $205.59

and Id only have to stop 4 times to fill up from empty

not to mention it would take 40.2 hours each way (48.76 hours if you stop at taco bell 8 times during the trip ((and 51.2 hours if you stopped and taco bell and got the shits from it and had to go stop at the bathroom 3 times))

Grand total of 102.4 hours (or 91.4 hours if you learned your taco bell lesson and didnt go there on the way home from work) which by the way was 8 hours

now youve got a 110.2 hour day . which has nothing to do with the original topic idea.

now if you make 11.75 an hour you worked 8 hours you made 94 dollars, now after taxes thats basically $2.50 th government leaves you.

$205.59 - $2.50

202.09 in debt

your in debt
