is it just me or!!

Do our cars use alot of washer fluid. three sprays from two nozzels...
also when your getting gas, its allof a sudden full... you cant shove in another dollar. and when you get in the car the gas says full. but about 10 km its already noticable.
some cars when you overfill it you can drive for 30 km before it moves.. have you guys seen this,

Once the gas nozzle kicks-back, I can't put $1 in. I accidently spilled gas with the new 'trep twice. Only once in the Neon (in 4 years).

I can't say how long it stays above the F mark, seeing as I haven't seen it full in a while

Yeah, I think it's the windshield size more than anything else. I have noticed that it cleans more in one sweep than in other cars I've had. I think it's because it dumps more fluid on the windshield; versus a thin spray.

Man, something isn't right. With a 3.3 you should be able to get around 500km on a tank doing all city driving. I get over 600km a tank in my 3.3 doing 70% city / 30% highway. Have you checked for engine codes to see if there's a sensor problem?

I've gone through about 10 gallons of the windshield washer fluid this winter!! We must be digging into our enormous supply of salt this year!

Right now, I'm averaging around 28mpg (mostly highway), or about 430 miles between fillups... If I go fewer than 400 miles on a tank, I know I've been pushing my 2.7 pretty hard! And, come to think of it, I've never been able to put in more than 15.8 gallons so far!

Its not wise to "overfill" your gas tank. When the pump stops at say "$22.45"... you shouldnt force it up to $23. Its bad for the car.
