I don't remember how much it cost me to fill on friday.....more that it should have because the wretched pump didn't stop when the tank was full (but got a free double deluxe wash, I heart that cashier.) Anyways, I think it was like $38 something from 1/4 tank.

i am worried about it, with both taurus'* getting only 12 mpg <my mom thinks its okay to put 87 in the SHO> and a tempo that gets 17mph, on a good day, really feels the burn. btw, $35 a tank all across the board.

getting about 11-16 MPG now
Thats kinda close to what I get, on my last tank I got 17.3mpg. But I think this one will be slightly more since I've been doing alot more freeway and being a tad lighter on the throttle but that is so hard to do.

Kinda interesting how you compare the rent'* taurus' in MPG and your Tempo in MPH... It'* that bad now? it'll only do 17mph? Roflmao

All you NA owners.. enjoy it.. there'* a difficult struggle every time I get into the car. The balance between mileage and boost is tested every turn of the key. Boost usually wins.

Randy.. it'* still only 2.80 at the Sunoco down the street from you.
