Rediculous? No, I'm sorry, but $500 a month in gas is not as rediculous as buying such a vehicle in the first place. Your "friend" is obviously driving that thing entirely too much. At 10mpg and $2.50/gal (the highest price likely being paid), he's driving it 2000 miles a month. If he knew going into this purchase that he'd be driving that much, he either didn't care about fuel prices or just didn't think it all the way through.Originally posted by darryl32v@Jul 6 2004, 10:09 AM
Being able to afford it or not. I have a friend who owns one and it was costing him $500.00 big ones a month in gas. That rediculous.
The Hummer name is no longer synonymous with bad-*** off-roading for most Americans. It now conjurs up the image of the H2, an over-sized gas-guzzling SUV. It doesn't matter if the H2 is a great off-roading vehicle or not, because it was advertised as if it were a new Toyota car.
