If we didn't buy their products, they wouldn't be posting such large profits.

I ride a motorcycle and use 3 gallons every two weeks. My wife drives the 05
Passat TDI and fills up every weeks to a month.

I have an 08 Jeep Patriot. Had it for a year, just now clocked over 5000mi. It
has a lifetime mpg of 23.

This is how I am sticking it to the "man"!
