Every time someone in EU mentions that I have to ask this... What do you consider a long trip? I have to drive 60 miles round trip just to get groceries. Spaces and towns are a bit farther apart in the USA. Quoting: MaryAlananB
we got uk prices AND us distances- yet mad max apart- we dont have anything like the us behaviours ( and no we dont all drive supercharged v8 interceptors in oz...)
god knows many (most??) of us would love an xb coupe with a supercharged 351
most of us drive fuel efficient cars that get 5l/100km or less
I got a thirsty diesel 4wd- it uses 10l/100km
richer folks that can afford new cars buy euro cars that get less than 5l/100km
I consider a long trip 1000km or more- that's a weekender trip down to my sisters place- another 200km gets me to mums house
I currently live in town (30km) but I did live at a farm (rural property we called it) it took 40 mins at 160kmh to drive to the nearest shop.... so I made sure I had ciggy papers....
but `you have to drive 50km each way AND pay less than a dollar a litre..'
cry me a river...
