It’s been about 2 weeks and I still have a half a tank. You need to way up your poll answers because my tank normally lasts about 2 weeks

I would have been in the 2-3 week category, but I had to fill up a low tire and just decided to fill the rest of the tank a couple days ago.

Behind you
With one high schooler and one college kid who's back home in the house now, all the time, non-stop, just hanging around, 24/7, always, right there, with us... I thought the second half of your question was going to be something else.

I filled up mid March shortly before heading to WFH. My gas budget in Mint has $0 spent for April

I get around
March 13, over six weeks ago and I've still got 1/3 tank left. It's $1.27/gal here in Altoona, Murphy's. At this rate I'll have to add STA-BIL Storage Fuel Stabilizer at the next fillup to keep the gas fresh.

About 2-3 weeks but I went a month before that.

Was $11 to fill up 3/4 tank. That was fun.

Normal fill up schedule here, once a week. Both the wife and I work "essential" jobs that cannot be done from home. On the other hand it is pretty awesome to fill up on less than $20 no matter how low I Iet the needle get! (On my cars, the pickup still cost me $40)

Tuesday I guess with my personal truck. But it was probably a week and a half before that.

Work truck at least a couple times a week.

Filled up the bike last weekend. Filled up the truck two weekends ago. Drove about 190 miles that day. Have about 300 miles on it now so I'll be filling up next time I take the truck out. Had to drive to work 3 times in the last 2 weeks so that made up half of the 110 miles I put on in the last 2 weeks. Normally I fill up about every two weeks

Stopped in a few weeks ago but really only to buy a car wash at the pump. Figured mo' social distancing at the pump than going into the store to buy a drive through car wash.

Only drives the last six weeks or so are over to a couple of local nature preserves to go walkabout.
