Sonoma..I'm not sure he'* got a girlie tank..It looks like his mat is off. He said he put in $33.00, which somehow at $2.53 a gallon equated to 15 gallons?

33/2.53=13 and change
33/15 = 2.20

The real question is did he buy gas at $2.20 (yeah right) or did he only get 13 gallons?... I'm betting on 13 gallons. Only problem then is he got better mileage than he originally thought.

I forgot to set my trip odometer when I filled up the 94. It cost me $34.99 and I was at about 1/8th of a tank when I filled her. I would like to know what kind of mileage I get. I drive 50 miles a day to work and home.
