Gasoline Credit Cards

Tuesday, September 3, 2002 11:13 AM
With the amount of miles I drive to get to my favorite parks, I use up a decent amount of gas, even though my Honda is very good on it.

I have recently gotten a Shell Mastercard which pays me 5% back on gas purchases and 1% on all other purchases. BP has one as well with the same offer. These are great when you spend a lot of time on the road.

Just a money-saving tip from your freind John

--Or you could get a Delta Skymiles American Express Card and accumulate miles so that you can fly to a park that you have never visited before.

Good idea. I've had a Shell card for about 8 years now and I never fill up anywhere but Shell.

Sunoco MasterCard. 4% on Sunoco crap, 1% elsewhere. Did you know that Sunoco uses mostly domestic, and no middle-eastern oil?

I was thinking of getting a new car, I wonder if I could charge it? That'd be about a year's free gas right there.

(and no, John, I'm not giving up my '92 Celica... it's just getting a new "sister" to play with.)

And since this is a coaster forum and all, there's also a 6 Flags card... so there.

That Shell card helped me and my little Celica a lot this year. Hopefully my Buzz Club card will see more action next year.....:)

I say get a Wal-Mat gift card and use it for your gas. With that you save 3-5 (depending on the sation) cents per gallon and you don't get charged intrest.

Wal-Mart has gas stations? I didn't know that. I wish the ones near me would get them then. We have K-Mart gas stations and Sam's Club and BJ's but no Wal-Mart stations.

Okay, I'm not gonna even touch that Sam's Club BJ comment. I assume you live in Nevada, though.

John, I test drove the Maxima SE (dark blue metallic), Celica GTS (silver or black), RSX type S (silver or metallic sand), C230 (black), and Solara(metallic tan). They all have their fine points, and I just love the 6-speed manuals out now. I should have something next week, I guess. (First new car ever!) I was gonna wait until the new year, but the wife & I are going to FL in January, and if I wanna take the new car I'd like it to be a bit broken in first.

I'll never get enough for my Celica, so I'll just keep it for a good fun winter car.

I should insert something about roller coasters here.

KPJB: I would either go with the RSX or the Celica. Heck, how about an S2000?

Coasters are good!

Ever watch that tape? I just am curious to your reaction.

S2000 and MR2 are great, but my wife has forbade any 2 seater cars.

Coasters are fun.

kpjb, I highly suggest you test drive the Lexus IS300. It's an amazing car and the electronic 5spd is really neat. Plus it has the Toyota 2jz-ge inline 6, the same engine as the Toyota Supra. Plus if you will be taking long trips in it, you'll definitely love the awesome perferated (sp?) leather seats. I don't know what kind of budget you are on, but the IS 300 outperforms all the other cars you mentioned and it does it in a luxurious manner. I don't mean to sound like a car salesman, but it's the truth.

The RSX and S2000 would be my first picks. However, once you're in S2000 range, you may as well test the Z3. And once you're in that, you may as well hit up the Boxster (slipperly slope )

"It's only a few thousand more..."

Relating this back to coasters -- if I had ANY of the above cars instead of (or in addition to) my trusty Honda Civic EX, it'd be a tough call for which to take to the parks. The Civic is a lot leaner on the gas and has more room for luggage (for those week-long excursions ), but wouldn't be nearly as much fun getting there...

Of course the Prelude is always fun.

Coasters are sometimes steel.

Why not test drive the six-speed Tiburon GT? Bet you'll love it...

I like roller coasters.

I'll NEVER buy a Lexus as long as they still make the Avalon (it's the same damn car for THOUSANDS less). And anyone who think that leather seats are a PLUS, obviously has never *owned* a car with leather seats (dem son'*****es get HOT).

I always thought the Avalon looked like a Lexus, granted Lexus/Toyota is the same thing.

The Tiberon is a cheeply made sporty coupe. I have been told by many reliable sources to stay away from those as well as the New Beetle (98-00) and the KIA products.

Now, if your going to spend $25,000 for a sporty vehicle, why not get an Accord V6 Ex? Thats 200hp of pure Japanese engineering... Mmmmmmm Boy!

The 2003 Accord will have 240hp. Yummy!

Gas Cards are good.
Coasters are better.
