1.71 hours for a tank of gas

Then again i'm one of those idiots who overpaid for real estate location to avoid overpaying for gas, so the gas isn't hitting me as hard as the housing slump.

Sure do. Two of them. But quite frankly sometimes I'm too lazy to pack my dress clothes in a backpack, gear up, hop on the bike, get to work, change clothes...work....leave work, change clothes, gear up, hop on the bike.

If I could wear jeans and a polo to work then I'd ride the bike a lot more often.

Lucky for me I can wear jeans and a t-shirt 'cause my uniform is at work. But my shifts are 24hours so it sucks when it's nice to ride to work but then they call for rain when I get off the next day..so I would have to drive.

oh, to answer the thread...couple hours for the truck and 30min/hour for bike.
