We drive a 1997 Chevy Suburban, probably responsible for at least one degree of heat last summer. It’s such a good vehicle, especially for my wife, who feels so safe in it, plus it fits the kids, the dog, and a couple other people every once in a while. The problem is that it gets like 5 mpg’s & with gas at $3.50+, it’s literally killing us. So we’ve been talking about sucking it up and getting something new/different that gets triple or quadruple the gas mileage. We can’t really afford it, but we also can’t afford to keep dropping cash into the beast either.
Anywho, as we’ve been doing our research, we found this cool site where you can find out some good info on vehicle’s gas mileage, how much it costs to go 25 miles, how much it costs in gas per year, etc. And you can compare vehicles side by side – pretty cool!
