No more 2500
 
So recently I switched jobs and started driving 80 miles a day. At 16 MPG, that was costly, even with the HUGE increase in pay.

So after looking at quite a few cars, I decided on the VW Passat SEL Premium TDI

I love my car, I don't miss my truck as much as I thought I would. We plan on buying a 3500 soon enough, the 2500 was didn't have enough towing for our liking.

Congrats on the new car. I know how you feel with the gas. Sometimes even if you HAVE the money, it's still unsettling to fill up almost $100/week in gas. I compromised and bought a old beater car that gets 40mpg all day long. 1994 civic. $1500 bucks. Shoot, 6 months and I've paid it off with gas savings.

Except I had knee surgery and can't drive manual for awhile, so back in the truck :(

Great looking new car. cant wait to see the 3500 though! Congrats on the new job too!

Why are you getting such low mileage???? I get better than that! And gas is expensive where you all are. I thought $90 was bad :P

I'm sure it'll be a dodge. I'm looking for an 07ish with a 5spd. We'll see how it goes. Wanting something pre-DPF that I can do a Bi-Fuel CNG system on.

I went from $450 a month to around $100 a month. It's a huge change.

I go through 130 bucks in 91 octane in 5-7 days. Full tank 130 bucks. Sucks





That VW is real nice. The tdi's are awesome.

It's around $60/tank. I make it two weeks on a tank roughly. Last tank I averaged 48 MPG.
