Default How many times a month do you fuel up?

I drive normally (unlike what many people may have assumed). Follow the speed limit, let the momentum carry the car most of the time (not applying throttle) get about 18 mpg city and almost 28 hwy. I fuel up once every sunday (live in SoCal LA Area, so traffic is pretty bad). I drive about 12-13 miles daily and about 30-40 miles on the weekend (total for both days). Just wondering how many times a month you guys fill up because it's really been concerning me (I can go about a week and a half (almost 2 weeks) in my CRV AWD)

Edit* I have an IS250

I commute from Burbank to Northridge to Van Nuys and sometimes further but I fill up about 1-2 times a week.

I drive my IS hard. I floor it between lights. I red line my car like a honda civic. I pretend like my car has VTEC! but I only fill up twice a month. Why is there a 0 choice?

Let's see. I drive 70 miles a day for 3 days in a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) so thats 210 and about 120 for both days on the weekend. That is 330 miles per week. i get about 400 miles per tank. i fill up about 4 to 5 times a month.





Lexus IS250 AWD.

Fill up once every three weeks with 97% city driving. No A/C, easy acceleration, and always manually shifting to get the most out of starting and stopping. I'm pleased with my consistent. 22 mpg average. The rare times I do make it out on the freeway, it always jumps to 29-30 mpg. All this is exactly what my window sticker advertised (21/29).

I put about 70-80 miles on my car M-TH and the weekends around 100 that's counting F-Sunday, and i fuel up once a week. On some days i can put 110 miles and then i have to fuel up more often. But on average i fill it up for $50 4-6 times a month.

Between 2-3 times a month, depending on how much I drive on the weekends

You should fix the poll so that 250 and 350 has its own poll. I'm guessing most said 2 times a week since most 2IS owners are 250. Statistic speaks for themselves.

I have a 350 and I usually only fill up 2-3 times a month. it all depends on how much time I drive on the weekends and how much I drive my FX.
