Friday, I purchased gas and filled up the tank (hadn't been able to do it right after change about 2 weeks ago). So, Friday, I had to take 2 trips back and forth from home to Cleveland. We did a little driving around Elyria Friday and Saturday. Then, Rob worked this weekend and took the car back and forth to the Cleveland Clinic (which is further than my drive to CSU). Yesterday, I drove one more trip back and forth, but also picked Cassi up from Pa's.
By the time I got back into Lorain County, my gas was just about gone. I stopped at my favorite place, which at this time is a Murphy Gas, which is the gas stations for Sam's Club/Wal-Mart. Their gas is ALWAYS lower than everyone in our area. I pulled up to the pump, with:
To fill up, it took $22.50 (at 2.08 a gallon) and put almost 11 gallons into my tank. I would say with all that driving back and forth, the oil change worked wonders to keep my gas in the tank longer.
So, the moral of the story is: even if you don't have your oil changed every 3000 miles, make sure you get it changed.
Love to all,
