Fuel Prices!

Ey all, im sure everyone is pissed off at current fuel prices. Just want to know how many k's people are getting out of a full tank for EB/ED's. I filled up to 3/4 tank the other day, and trip comp saying im getting 420k's. Is this good/bad?

Re: Fuel Prices!

I paid $75 to fill up yesterday at Churchill. That hurt. It's normally $55-$65!

I go thru 1 to 1+1/4 tanks in a fortnight.
