    So, since many of us can't make it to the Camping Trip, Genetics Dave and I are going to be getting together for a lunch or dinner the following Monday.

    Thinking Fast Food, cause some of us are poor.

    Time?

    Place?

    TJ?

    If it is after 6pm I can make it (off work at 6 Monday). I would suggest something a little more sit down, as there are many restaurants that are no more expensive than most fast food. A BK meal will run you $7-10, red robins will run $12 (just an example). Golden corral run $10 I think.

    I am up for anything within reasonable scooter distance (no freeways) of the E-Center for lunch, or anywhere in the valley for dinner. If we do it on Monday my wife can come!

    I was more concerned about time than I was about distance. I can easily take a 90 minute lunch, hell even a 3 hour lunch, but I have to make up that time somewhere...

    WVC is best for lunch

    Monday evenings are Family Home Evening here, non-negotiable. I could probably do lunch.

    I would most likely only be able to do lunch. Anyone else interested in lunch, let me know. Otherwise I think I will have to defer to Tuesday night after the Council meeting for a meet.

    What kind of fuel economy do you get with the scooter? Do you open carry on it?

    I am getting about 70 mpg right now, but that is because I push it pretty hard on the way to work. At slower speeds I think I would get 80+ no problem.

    Pics are posted on XD Talk (last post of page 3), I tried to post to UCC last night but my internet crapped out on me:

    Hmmm...80 MPG = $4 to drive 80 miles on a scooter.

    CNG is .63/gge. My four door Contour gets 30 MPG.

    $4@ .63 per gallon will give me 6.35 gallons. 6.35 * 30 MPG=190.5 miles!

    So a scooter costs more than double to drive than my car!

    Have I rubbed it in enough yet? :P

    I'm going to have to defer until Tuesday after the WVC council meeting as well.

    And I get 40-50 mpg and can go 90 mph... paid 1600 used. Yamaha Virago.

    But its all the non-gas stuff where a scooter will really save you $. how much do you pay for full coverage insurance? oil? etc. What about for the car itself?

    The car was free... let me explain. I paid $3000 for the car. I received a $2500 tax credit from the state of Utah. The other $500 I have saved by not buying gasoline.

    CNG is far cleaner than gasoline. My oil still looks clean after 10,000 miles! An oil change once a year for $15. (Oil and filter at Wally World)

    I do not fully insure this car, the book value is not worth it. I have all of my insurance (Home, Auto, Life) through AAA. Probably $20 a month for insurance on this car.

    ScottyT, you can learn more at cngchat.com

    Well the real cost depends on how much you drive (running your numbers):

    at 1000 miles a month: Scooter cost $.08 per mile, CNG .07 per mile

    at 500 miles per month: Scooter cost $.11, CNG .12

    The CNG car can go 75+mph, the scooter 55mph (freeway vs no freeway)

    The scooter is fun to ride, car no so much

    Car can be driven year round, scooter 6-8 months

    Scooter is new, car was used

    And they all beat my truck at $1.48 per mile at 1000 miles a month

    .63 cents per gallon/ 30 MPG = .02 cents per mile.

    $4.00 per gallon/ 80 MPG = .05 cents per mile.

    And I can carry a trunk full of rifles and ammo to the range. :P
