I usually take my Suburban up to Ottawa. Used to cost around $150.00 round trip... Today it'd be 2 bills easy. Took my Sebring this weekend, roof down through Algonquin Park and had a blast..$70.00 rounder.
I love my truck. She goes anywhere, does anything, hauls everything but she's a sucker that digs deeper into my pocket than any girlfriend I ever had.
Is this a Fabreze moment? C.Y.D. I'm voting white elephant. 2¢. My competition are my best salespeople!
i only buy fords. will not consider any other truck due to my perception of fords being very tough. my way is to buy leftover vehicles at a very good price. i send out emails to all the local dealers telling them what i want, and let them offer vehicles to me. once i get all the numbers, i call the dealer whom i like to do business with and let him have last look. as far as fuel pricing, you need to be getting compensated for that anyway via a mileage charge or some other way depending upon what market you are in. if you know your costs, this fuel thing right now is nothing more than a minor nuisance.

Diesel 1.9L engine gets 35 mpg around town. I use it when I give estimates or run errands. No sense in carring ladders, parts and tools when I go to the bank or to inspect a job.
I use a 97 jeep wrangler.

I have a E-350 knapheide also that gets 10 miles per gallon, trip charge for truck only is $25 in county and $25 plus $1 per mile out of county. Also rasied my hourly to $85 so I have no problem paying for gas.
You can have that weak a$$ over priced sprinter toy truck.
