My new fuel gauge

Well not really. It would be too depressing to look at this all the time. Just playing with Power Point and MS paint. The sad thing is the dollar amounts are real. I guess this isn't really funny, but it is either laugh or cry, and we might as well 'grin and bear it', 'cause I think gas prices are going to get worse before it gets better. (if it ever does get better again)

I think it should be the other way. How many dollars will it cost to fill??

Exactly, At least this way I will be real ready for the pump to roll over the hundreds digit a couple more times.

Thanks

RinkersRanch, my diesel fuel tank holds 150gal. Could I see that? Not that I really want to.

Yep... that's what it cost. You can't take it with you! I don't like the high price of diesel either but I have never seen a hearse with a luggage rack! Spend it now on the things you like because all too often the ride is over too soon! My friend Pete, a fellow RVer has cancer and probably won't make it through June, and he is only 60. Puts things in prespective for me.

The DW and I just had a life event that made us take another look at our retirement plans. The DW retired 1 1/2 years ago and I am going to move from full time to part time consultant on the 3rd of August, 12 months ahead of our original schedule.

I had that life lesson way early. My first wife died at 39 years old and left me with kids 12, 10 and 8 (4.5 year cancer battle). Today I am remarried and have a total of 5 kids. We started RVing a year ago. I love the time it gives my family together. I will probably work until I die but my kids will have great memories when I am gone. My kids don't have a lot of those with their mom largely because I figured there's always tomorrow. If there's any regret I have, it's that.

Sorry. Just realized this was in the humor section. I'd hate to be a thread killer. I do like the gas gauge. Fortunately there has been some relief. I think you could change my gage to say "FFN" and "EAU". Full For Now and Empty As Usual. :-)

Don't count the moments. Make the moments count.
