When I fill up it is usually around $35-40. That will last me two weeks if I drive until the gas light comes on. My tank is a 50 L tank and I usually only put in 40 L or so when the gas light is on. Big reserve...for a Focus!
I used to have a '95 Geo Tracker and I could go 325km on a tank for about $30. How big is your tank that you can go 500km?
The Metro is a lot smaller than the Tracker. It is about the size of a Mini. It is a 1L, 3 cylinder motor with about a whopping 50 HP!!, so it uses very little gas . I generally get between 45 to 50 miles to the gallon.
After it's first trip, I can say that my new ride (the Freightliner) gets about 1200km on a $720 diesel fill.
By my calculations, I could legally load 23.25 Toyota Echo's (by weight) on that Freightliner, which makes the mileage pretty similar really. It's all perspective isn't it

My tank is kind of small for a truck. A fill a up is around 60-65litres, although I have squeezed 70 litres into it if I really push it and run on fumes for the last few metres.
As it is I can go three days on a tank of gas, 4 if I just go to work and back with no side trips. I live in Ajax and work in Toronto so I am a slave to the 401, traffic kills me. I pay around $350/month for gas, but at these prices it will jump to $400/month.
If I had to make payments, it would be parked more often.
I'll spend between 40-45 for gas. That will last about 9 days. Driving to work and back plus week-end running around. That will change if the gas keeps going up. May have to look for a second means to get around -- that Focus sounds good!
