A full tank for $20?

October 30th, 2008 at 11:28 pm

I decided I would attempt to use my stupid/useless prepaid rebate card again - at the gas station.

S'posedly I can pay inside; not at the pump.

So, we'll see.

Was kind of being lazy and dragging my feet - thinking, "Maybe next week..."

BUT dh's tank is about empty and the credit card doesn't close until Tuesday. I'd like to avoid more charges this month.

I ran the math on the gas prices I saw today.

Wait a minute. $20 will fill the whole tank?

Why does that blow my mind so much????? A free tank of gas - now we're talking!!!!!

Well, it's 8 gallons for $20, but since the "no fuel" light has not come on I assume that is all I will have to fill anyway.

I can only figure some of you are nearing $1.99 - we are so slammed with gas taxes here in Cali.

    Congrats on the free tank - I'd be excited too!

    Paid $2.269 at my last fillup, but now I'm seeing as low as $2.199.

    IT worked!!! I decided to only use $15 because I wasn't sure I had $20 worth of gas (was fuller than I realized).

    But at least the thing WORKED. 3rd try was the charm. (& reading the fine print).

    I'll put $5 in the van this weekend and we can squeak out a few more days before fill ups again.

    I paid $2.23/gallon today. I had 1/4 of a tank of a gas. I filled up for $21.70 W O O T !!! :-)

    I haven't seen $1.99 yet here in Ohio. $2.26 seems to be the lowest. I hope people don't get too excited. This is temporary. Enjoy it only while it lasts.

    We just got down to $2.95 here in NY and I'm stoked! I only got a tiny bit of gas yesterday because when I fill up by the time I need gas again the pumps are down so much more. It's the opposite of the "OMG, I have to fill up NOW while the prices are low!" LOL.
