A Car that empties your wallet

I saw a commercial yesterday where the selling point was the number of miles between a fill up.

Then again this morning, I heard a radio commercial for the Nissan Altima. It gets over 600 miles between fill ups. This had me interested, so I went and checked. 32 miles per gallon, with a 20 gallon tank. It may be 600 miles between fill ups, but each trip to the gas station will cost more than $80. Yikes.

I want to get 600 miles for $40, get me one of those cars.
