Since I've already seen prices on the trail that were $2.16 a gallon, I'm certain they will still continue to climb. So how much are you willing to pay, or will you just park your sled?
Let's hear what you think!

I would Have to say, that I would pay just about anything to ride on the white stuff. Well, unless it got to like $3 a gallon or something rediculous like that!

When you think about it, at $2.00 per gallon and most of have 13 gal tanks, 13 x 2.00= $26.00 Let's say we get an average of 12 mpg, thats 156 miles. I think 156 miles in one day is a very good day! If you ride Saturday and Sunday the most you would pay (if you rode under 156 miles) would be $52.00. (unless you have to pay for multipul sleds at the gas station) I guess you should add APV oil too (maybe another $15-$20)

I'm just ramblin

I don't think it matters, it is beyond our control. They just keep putting it up and up.

I except that and filler up time to ride. It's nice that some of the machine are getting better mileage.

Well, you can pi## and moan all you want. Here in Canada we are already paying $3.00 per US gallon and thats for Regular.

I drive possibly the worst sled for mileage in the cat line. (Guess's here!) And I not about to stop.

It's a hobby, albeit an expensive one!!

To put it in perspective. How much are you paying for valentines day? And are you smilling as much when you are finished???

Just a Thought

I gas at least 4 everytime We stop! Usually runs 80.00 to 100.00 when We fill up. I have payed 3.00 before for gas! ( I didn't fill up! Just enough to get back) But hey just give em the Visa and sign the slip! I have probably spent 20,000 on sledding this year. New sled, new trailer, Maint. work gas, oil, motel rooms, But it has been worth every penny! Winter Rules!!!!!!!!!!!
