$3.17

Is how much it cost me to fill up on my last trip to the natural gas station! I got about 5 gallons in it and it cost me LESS than 1 gallon of gasoline! Jealous...I thought so.

I love, love, love the new car, but I have to admit I am going through Tacoma withdrawls. Everyone has a Civic! Look, just today I was a Civic sandwich where I parked at work...4 in a row!


I really can't complain, because at .63 cents a gallon I would probably drive the crap Chevy Cavalier we originally were thinking of getting. I heard it is getting hard to even get a used P.O.S natural gas car these days. The waitlist for this car is well into 2009 now. I guess we have a "top of the line" natural gas car since no one is making them brand new other than Honda.

Oh, and the reason it shut down on me last week and had to be towed back to the dealer was because there is an emergency system in the car. If too much pressure is going into the tank it will shut the car down, which is a good thing, I guess. All we have to do is take off the negative battery cable to reset it, but the mechanic said this is a freak thing and should not happen again. What are the chances...the 1st time we fill up and there happens to be a spike in pressure at the pump!
