It costs just as much
Cars of beauty:
2000 Taurus, My buddy Sonny had a Taurus, he loved it. I know of one accident it was totaled, he bought it back and had it repaired. (Now he might have done that twice, Not sure)
I started to contact my retirement pay group to have my income tax withdrawal increased, since we had to pay this year. Then I thought, hey, it costs just as much to wait and pay or have it taken out monthly.
It is kinda like filling your fuel tank at the ½ mark or near the big ‘E’. (I call the E on my gas guage ‘excitement’!) I do get excited when I don’t pay attention and notice I am near or at ‘E.’ The amount of gas you use will stay the same.
Playing it too close either way, can cause trouble. If you owe at the end of the year and did not prepare for it, it ain’t good.
If you have ever pushed the gauge and run out of gas, ‘at ain’t good either.
You can pretty well trust a gas gauge on cars over the past 20 years, but there was a time you had better not trust it down around excitement, because I have, and walked to get gas, so I TRY to fill up at the ½ mark.
My daddy told of gas gauges on the T & A Model Fords that changed going up or down hill.
Did you ever buy $1, $2 or $3 worth at a time? Or have you always been a “Fill-r-up” driver.
Do you fill up below ½ or above?
Have you ever run out of gas?
PS: I ask because I have noticed since we have sat here a few months, I don’t pay enough attention and the little warning light has come on a couple times.
On the road In the coach I pay very close attention.
