Its not as bad as it seems. In 6 hours or less (depending on surge and PB) im cashing out an estimate of 200-300 for that day, of course I don't do it every day. Traffic? Well I'll be on carpool which in some areas is worse than others...so? but at least im not stuck in the same area (it has become boring) with the same crowd, wear and tear, high risk coalition involvement, and many bull****, besides I don't fallow Quest like a puppet, and most important of all, Im saving half a tank, yes you heard right..HALF A TANK. Yea yea..more miles, but who cares, that's deductable (and it pays off in tax season). Try it, sometimes it happens, and sometimes you have to really take a lot of factors in consideration, like how many DF you have left when you end up in an certain points of bay area.
