Compliment!

ordered a pizza and the delivery guy saw my gassaver.org stick and asked if i had one of them hybrid cars!

I told him it was just a regular car and site was a bunch of gas saving guys that give tips and advice on saving fuel.

he drives a jeep and does local delieries so i'm sure he put alot of gas in that thing.

he said he's gonna check us out later tonight.

I second Pizza Hut -- but believe it or not, the Freschetta frozen pizza line is actually pretty good, and it doesn't require delivery :-)

I delivered pizza this past summer with my 1991 Ford Thunderbird with a 5.0L HO engine. there was an average of 6 deliveries a night (maximum I've ever recorded was 18), so I put 15-20 miles a night on the car. Making money was easy with minimum wage + $3 per delivery run from the store + tips. I'd come out with at least $30 untaxed money every night.

Have you figured out how much more you would have made with the Metro?

I put 12,300 miles on the T-Bird in the one year I drove it (it got around 18mpg average), so that would be around $1600 savings if I drove the Geo that same distance instead. Not all that much money if we're just including the miles while delivering pizzas.

Yeah, what could you buy with $1600 in a year? ...besides a car and enough gas to take Darin ~7,850 miles.

I used to deliver Pizza in my VX....before I put the turbo LS in it.

It was great...I got $1.25 per delivery on top of the tips...I made a KILLING there. Then I almost got killed and changed jobs.
