From the mouths of babes

17 year old: "How many miles does the Jeep get on a tank of gas?"
Me: "About 228 before I get nervous."
Son: sends picture of gas gauge pointing to the red just above E and replies, "I can make it to school."

It’s time to hide an empty one gallon container and a $20 bill in the Jeep. Nothing teaches one to respect the inaccuracies of a gas gauge quite like having to walk for gas.

  1. How about a $5 bill ($3.50 for one gallon of gas and $1.50 for something to drink as he walks back to the jeep).

    The other $15 would just be a reward for running out of gas. 😉

  2. You make a good point!
