    Springs here, May long weekend just over the horizon and fuel going up.
    What is your cost for fuel?
    I converted mine into U.S. gallons.

    Premium 91 octane is at $1.37 litre which is $4.99 gallon here in Calgary.
    I expect it to go to $1.50 a litre in May which is $5.67 a gallon.

    It'll cost me evenings in front of the TV.
    It'll cost me weekends pulling weeds and painting fences.
    It'll cost me family and work stress on my mind.

    It'll cost me....
    Oh Hell... you get it!:rider

    considering it's still under 25 bucks to fill my 6 gallon tank and I can run around town all week on that fuel cost is the least of my worries. Now if your talking about my Tahoe I need a bank loan till fill that puppy.

    Prices here in the UK are still going up and we are now paying $8.10 per US gallon. I know it's a lot of money to pay but I have rationed the wife and son's food, stopped them from using the heating at daytime (when I'm at work) and whe ca just afford it...................Just. And thaen to know that more than 75% is tax being wasted on gouvernment projects.

    I agree with you spend 60 bucks a week on the bike including the weekend rides and it costs over 150 to fill up the Chev.

    It will save me a lot of money versus riding the cage to work. Now is the time my bike seems more a necessity than a luxury :hii

    When riding my bike, I don't really consider the cost of it. The price of gas where I live in Oregon is around $3.85/gal for Premium and going up weekly.
