Awww. Nothing ever comes to santa fe. Wish I were back in Minneapolis right now....
Well, that is still a little closer than I am LOL, but I understand. It probably is just as unreachable....
Yeah, I only get around by walking, and the bus. (I get my license on the 24th!, But I don't have/ can't afford a car)
Save up for a year to buy a car only to find you have to save up 2 more years to put gas in it *sigh*
Diesel! Screw gas- VW golf tdi gets 48mpg!!!! (costs ONLY $5000 used) *sigh*
Around here, you would need to save for 3 years then to fill the tank with diesel fuel, it is close to half again as much as gasoline; so around here, they get you coming and going. *sigh*
But for them it is cheaper to produce!!!! Maybe I'll go with biodiesel, or vegetable oil. IDK what I'll do. I probably would have gotten my mom's mazda 626, but its in Minnesota. *sigh*
All too often, prices are determined by demand. When it was cheap, and the Golfs first came out, the fuel was inexpensive, much more so than gas, but once demand went up, they determined they were not making a high enough profit margin and so the prices go up (I know, I know, that is oversimplification to the max, but still a factor).
I guess I'll make my own then! What is the danger of making your own fuel? If it's outside a few hundred feet away from the house should I worry? Does it ruin the car? Thanks
Depends on the "fuel" you are speaking of. I can't imagine someone refining crude oil into a usable fuel at home, and alcohol, although not overly difficult to make, requires a few processes that "can" be somewhat dangerous (many a person died when their "homemade still" blew up on them).
