Metro owners will appreciate this

So, I'm listening to a local FM station this morning to catch traffic updates. And the morning show team is running a call-in and Web page poll:

Quote:
With Gas prices so high, do you still fill up your tank or do you just put in a specific dollar amount?
Most people said they fill up. But about one in four also whined about how it costs them $50 or $65 to fill their SUV.

Towards the end of the show a call came in that went like this:

Quote:
Caller: I fill up, but it usually only takes about seven gallons to top off my tank.

Host: Seven gallons?! What are you filling, a motorcycle?

Caller: No, I drive a Geo Metro.
Take that, all you whiners!

Rick

Good one The same thing could go for a Civic CX or VX as well and it does feel good to see the pump stop so fast already after you started fueling!

That's what you get. It's sort of a dare
