I desperately needed gas last week. I had to do some juggling of finances in order to put a small amount in the Jeep. I set the gas cap on the rear tail light. 90% of the time, I hang up the pump and then replace the cap.
I've had a lot on my mind lately with the plumbing and the computer and wanting to go to Iowa for family Christmas and realizing that wasn't going to happen. Even with gas dropping some 40 cents since Thanksgiving, my reserves are gone, absorbed by these two repairs. I'm grateful I had the reserves in the first place, however. It would have been worse had I not set aside a chunk back in November.
When I first got the Jeep, I was constantly losing the cap, so I would buy two and keep one in the car. Eventually, I got myself trained so this is an anomaly rather than the norm. So, I can be forgiven for forgetting to replace the gas cap. There's an auto store near the office. Tonight I'll get a new cap.
