Stuff Article...


So anyway, I remember the days of my first car about 8-10 years ago... I even remember 89c octane. Topping up was only $32... I now have a similar sized Subaru 2004 to the older wagon I started driving that takes about $75 to fill and drinks about $45 a week...

How much do you guys spend a week?

$110 ish for the car, every 8-10 days, with 91, with around 600km.

The bike does around $25 for 300+km, with BP ultimate.

about 7L per 100k, have managed 610k to my 40l tank, but that was through driving backwards and forwards 2km between 2 petrol stations, just to see if I could make it

40L tank, 1.6L pulsar, nicely nicely about 72-75 to fill

My last fill cost me exactly $70, which was interesting!

I used to commute for ~7 hours/week, which was $0.96/litre at the time. I'd think twice about doing that now, although I'm lucky enough to live about 1 km from work now :)

Side note: I put my home and work addresses into Google Maps just to see how accurate my "1 km" guess was, and it suggested that I drive the wrong way down a one-way street :P

Average $160 per week, 35000km per year




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Come on nate, you've been thinking about getting your man card for months. Just get a bike, and you can have it back!
