I hate getting in the car and the little annoying petrol light blinks on. It always seems to happen whenever I want the car. (Yes, we're a one car couple!)
Do you live dangerously and wait until the light comes on to fill the car up/put some petrol in? We do all the time! I get annoyed at having to get petrol again so soon after just filling it up a week ago. It sure doesn't last long - and its so expensive. Gone are the days of having my first little car and having to dig around for $25 to fill it up. Nowadays its more like $70 to fill - and we only have a small car!
A few Christmas's ago hubby won a few 20% off fuel vouchers through his work. They came in very handy, especially at that time of year. We sent one to his parents and one to my parents. When I asked my mum about it, she said she used it and got half a tank. WTF??? Apparently now that they are in their retirement years, they panic when the arrow points to half, and then rush to the petrol station to fill the car back up. I don't get it. Half a tank is still enough petrol to do quite a few kilometers over a few days. And whats the point of getting 20% off the price of half a tank - wouldn't it make more sense to use that special voucher when you filled up the car completely?
So todays poll question: When do you fill your tank with fuel? When its half way, or when its nearly dried up like I do?
