    I just got my old liscence, and my stupid fucking dad is too cheap to buy me a new car and gave me the 94 Cherokee with like 150,000 miles on it. It has so many problems, but one of them is the gas meter. The gas meter fluctuates...wildly. I mean, one second if I'm hitting the gas the gas light goes on, and if I'm coasting, the meter rises to a quarter tank. I really have no idea how much gas I have, and I'm wondering whether I should buy gas when the light goes on, or if I actually have a quarter tank.

    hey nimrod, you got it for free....QUIT BITCHING just fill the damn tank up, then filli it again every 100 miles or so. If you want to get really tech nical with it, drive it the 100 miles and do the math to figure out your MPG. do it 3-4 times to establish an average. Look in your owners manual for the size of your tank and do the math. make sure you leave yourself enough gas in the tank to do about 50 miles.

    Ah shut the fuck up, I'm just joking when I call him my stupid fuckin dad. I love the guy, he's my father.

    But yeah, thanks for the help with the gas. I'll use the odometers.
