I filled my Yamaha 100cc scooter with loose change. I filled my Peugeot 308 diesel with three hours' wages.

If only two children, a dog, and all my teaching paraphernalia would fit in to the top box...

I have an electric bicycle. It's awesome, no gas and only 40 cents to charge it. If only it would work in the snow :(

I have a truck, 4wd and love it. I love parking it at Whole Foods and watching all the hippies practically cry. Especially since I'm one of the few in the parking area with stickers on my car that make it clear I'm anti-Obama. :P

It's awesome because it's more than big enough to haul our kayaking stuff, dogs and hunting gear. :D

I have a stick shift Kia that's great on gas. Whenever I see a Hummer or similar such vehicle I just laugh. Not because they're gas guzzlers, but because they're ugly as ----.

DancingEMT, love that meme!

I love my Pug, and really I can't complain- it does 1000-1200km on a tankful. 6 speed manual gearbox and dual-lane highways. <happy sigh>

No I hate scooter riders get a real bike - scooters should be banned - When it comes to Cycle Vs Car accidents in my area its 4 times more Likely a Scooter is involved and a 75% more change of death.

I call scooters users as try hards, a full cycle is inherently more safer and in fact easier to control.

I imagine a scooter is like a motorcycle: it's only cheaper if it's all you own. Otherwise it's just the price of the scooter/motorcycle *on top of* the price of your car, and my guess is that you wouldn't save enough on gas to balance out the price of the scooter/motorcycle and insurance.
