Default How to feel like a king:

1. Notice you're paying a crapload in gas.
2. Buy a cheap economy car.
3. Happily drive your economy car for about three weeks enjoying 35+MPG without even unlocking your Bonneville.
4. Drive you Bonneville for all your errands today

I used a half tank, But God it felt great!

Heh... That'* not the only good part... I dropped my expected mileage for the Bonneville to 5K a year and the difference in premium paid for the insurance on the Geo and a $100 credit towards my next years' coverage

I felt like I was sitting on my couch with my 5.1 surround watching a driving video....

I know how you feel. I've done the same thing. I once went an entire week without my vehicle and when I finally did get it back it felt like the nicest vehicle I'd ever driven.

I get just as good of gas mileage as I did in my smaller car. I guess probably cuz my driving is all highway.

I commute to work with one other guy. Been for about a year. We alternate weeks. Some of those weeks I haven't even gotten into my car and I know that feeling. After riding around in his litttle Accord all week it'* nice to stretch out.
