    How often do you fill up your gas tank? Every two weeks? Twice a month? Only when it dangerously close to empty?

    I fill my gas tank once a week, because I really do not go anywhere so I save on spending gas. I have a SUV, but it does not burn as much gas as the big SUV's. When I do go somewhere during the week I fill up two times a week and it cost me about $60 with the way gas prices are now. When I had my 2003 Envoy XL, I wasted a whole lot of gas driving from downtown Atlanta to go to school and back home. I made sure to consider half a tank as empty so I would fill up. That was about $60 at half a tank, and I was filling up about two or three times a week. I love that car, but had to sell it and get me something smaller like my PT Crusier which I had for about a year and sold for my 2003 Buick Rendezous which I drive now. I love SUV's, but made sure this one did not kill me in gas money.

    Sometimes twice a week, depends. I usually fill it to the top. It can only fit 40 litters inside and burns like 8l/100km so it really goes down fast.

    I generally half my gas tank about every 10 days since I don't travel far. The only time I get it filled is before heading out on a long journey. I hate to be stopping all the time just for gas so I make sure the tank is full.

    It really depends how much I use my car and how far I go. Typically, I fill my car up about 3 times a month on average. If I use my car heavily, then I may go 5 or more trips to the gas station. But usually, I think 3 trips to the gas station is quite enough, especially since gas is starting to raise in price.

    I don't have a lot of money so I don't fill it all that often, I just filled my gas tank on Wednesday and the time before that was two months ago. Usually I just put $15~$20 in and the gas last me 2 weeks because I don't really go that far.

    Nowadays I fill it every 3 weeks or so, the gas prices are going up over here more and more so it's really hard to keep up with that to be honest. I think most people is having issues with that. Worst thing is... the gas prices here are not fluctuating like they do in other places, they go up and never down.

    So far I'm filling up the Jeep once a week. I'm pretty impressed with it. You don't buy a Jeep if your worried about fuel at all. But when I had the chance I bought a new Jeep then I was going to buy because of the 80+ extra hp and the claims of better fuel mileage. It seems to be doing way better then the Mazda Tribute we had. And I don't seem to be using anymore then I was in the Acura TL. I am burning more right now because it is new to me and I have friends and family that want to take a drive in it. And I have no problem taking them places. I will be busy giving drives later this summer when I take off the full roof for a weekend. I might have to do that for two weekends just to get all the drives in.

    With regular fuel at $1.40/L it is about $80 to fill once the light comes on.

    If i fill it all the way it cost about $50 bucks and last me about 2 weeks. So on average I fill my tank up about every two weeks.
