    at the same time i want a truck, for truck things, and keep my current car for daily commute to work because i cant come to terms with the gas cost on a larger vehicle.
    I just bought a 300k Impreza now that my commute is 45 minutes one way. I still don't think its going to cut it, I'm thinking 90's civic that can knock down 50mpg is in order.

    This is my tone now -it might change if I get a contract back downtown haha Current contract is less than a 5 min drive from my house and I'm still filling up once a week lol I drive into the city (like 34th ave) every lunch hour so that offsets the fuels savings having to work close to my house. It might be a good excuse to pick up a wrx or something down the road. Looking to get stupid and am eyeballing procharger supercharge kits for the wk1. That will be silly fun.
    i had Magnaflow on mine. Sounded awesome. Still can't beat the Corsa though. I'm very seriously considering giving back my woman's 2014 Lexus now that lease is up. Giving her my 2016 Lexus and us sharing it as much as possible. Then just getting a 2006 Charger SRT8 as my daily. Toss a cam in it and some decent exhaust.

    I'm in the same boat... just bought a small farm with the woman about an hour east of the city back in February. If it weren't for her Golf TDI we'd be fucked for fuel bills right now. Been averaging 6 L/100km (tracked with fuelly.com), which works out to a fill up every 4-5 days. At ~$50/tank of diesel we're getting an average of 760 km distance, for a fuel cost of ~6.5 cents/km. I could stretch that out noticeably, but my cruising speed is exactly 2000 rpm and doesn't attract the fuzz but I'm still passing most people haha

    Recently managed to get a killer deal on an old plumbing company's truck from my partner at work... $200 for a 2001 Chevy 1500 4x4 extended cab with the 5.3L. Decent truck for what it is, only needed a battery to get it going. Handy, but thirsty. I'm lucky to get 300km on 40L of regular (haven't filled it up yet as I cycle out the old fuel).... so 13.3 L/100km. Ouch.

    13.3L/100km sounds quite good for a half ton.

    My sti got 12.8L/100kms with normal driving. I wasn't flooring it everywhere I went (rarely floored it), but was generally spirited everywhere I went. 13.3L for a half ton seems awesome to me in comparison.
