commuting again
 
last year I was working 12 miles from home when at the beginning of summer my company transferred me to gallipolis for 6 months, 132 mile round trip. got back to my store in october, well its the beginning of summer again and there sending me back to gallipolis again. hope the old vulcan is up for it again and if shes down I hope you all are there again. hopefully this is my last stepping stone till I get my own store, I work for cvs by the way!

I take 32 out of piketon to 35, nice roads and very little traffic but I usually do it rain or shine. its 6 to 8 bucks versus 20 to 25 in my truck.

$20 - $25 to fill up your truck???? Right now it takes almost $80 to fill mine up. 34 gallon tank but I typically refill at 28 gallons. I just drive it about 450 miles and then fill-up. I drive 2005 Dodge ram 1500 pickup. Yes, I have a Hemi. It was the last year before they introduced the MDS version to shut down the cylinders not needed.

I wish, I have a ford ranger 6 cyl. takes about 45 to fill it up 19.5 gal tank. it takes me 20 - 25 to make that trip every day. about 6 bucks on the vulcan!
