I understand school isn't cheap, I've been paying out of pocket until this year. I don't have a job right now either and live 120 miles from home. I drive a car that gets 16mpg average.

What is probably happening is as mentioned. There's crap buildup at the bottom of your tank. Why it happens to you and not the other guy depends purely on the contaminants within the fuel at each station.
Thanks...really yeah its tough and i feel you on that fuel economy! Had a 1991 f-150 and oh man i don't know what the outlook on gasoline was back than but from that freakin truck they must have been swimming in it.

so seafoam? Ill check that out. it goes directly into the fuel tank?
