Anyway, that is one thing I like better about my Sedona. 21 gallon tank - I only refill once a week. With other Kias it seems like every other day.

Dik wanna be long ?...

I like my gas tank in its current size. Any bigger and the Soul would be heavier, especially on a full tank and use more gas to move around.
On a full tank, I don't have to fill up for 2 weeks and I'm using it to go to work every day and on week-ends. I live about 1/2 from my office. I drive in CLASS. If I would have to travel further, I would get myself a beater like a Honda Civic or a Lada and use it to go to work and drive without class.

Yeah...I think 12.5 gallons is at least 4 gallons too small. This is especially true considering the gas mileage isn't that great. My other car has a 20.5 gallon tank.

UK gallons have more volume than US gallons. US gallons are equivalent to 3.8 liters. UK gallons are equivalent to 4.5 liters.

Well, how far do you drive every day, Dik? Is it long?
I wish you knew.

You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your hand.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I am addicted to you...

I also live in Texas...small town no less. But...work is 3 miles away, and it's a five minute drive to just about anywhere. I go home for lunch. My usual daily total mileage is about 12 miles.

Well, many do courtesy of mom and dad or grandparents. I wasn't so lucky. My first car was a Ford Pinto. Not just a Pinto, but a station wagon. Not just a station wagon, but one with woodgrain paneling on it.

At that time, however, I didn't care. It was a car! That's all that mattered!

Even if we could afford to buy them a brand new car (and most families in the UK cant) they wouldnt be able to get insurance on it!!!....the insurance for a 18 year old in this country for a year is often more than the value of the car.... and i am fairly sure if one turned up trying to insure a brand new kia - the insurance quote would just keep rising until it was unaffordable (thats what happened with a girl i work with)

I know what you mean I used to do 600 a week till I started working from home. I wish that freakin tank was bigger as well. Gas mpg kinda sucks. I prefer to drive my wife's Sonata as it gets better MPG.

I've only had the car 2 weeks & this is one thing I'm definitely disappointed with... I mean, come on... even my old car, a MINI Cooper, had a bigger gas tank!!
