5. Ford Expedition EL Eddie Bauer: $131.32

With the Ford Expedition, we’ve now entered the $130 a tank zone. This flex-fuel vehicle costs $131.32 to fill up, which is certainly a terrifying figure to see on a gas pump. Whats the Expeditions excuse? It doesn’t use diesel, or premium fuel; but has a massive gas tank. A capacity of 33.5 gallons helps put the Expedition at number 5 on this list.

    My 2011 Mitsubishi Triton extra cab cost $110.72
    it is rated at 22 MPG and has a 79 Lt. tank (31 gallom)
    Here in Thailand fuel is now $5.30 a gallon and going up 3cents tomorrow
    Cost to fill is nearly 1/3 of the average workers take home pay
    Luckly it also uses NGV (Natural gas) that cost only 1/4 the cost of Gas and gets 15% better MPG on NGV

    I am so glad I don’t have these cars today.. $1.40 a litre up here!

    This is a very stupid comparison….By your estimations, *ANY* vehicle with a large gas tank would cost more to fill up! If I put a 50 gallon barrel in the back of a Prius, then *IT* would cost more than any of these cars to fill up! Just because a car costs less to fill up doesn’t make it any worse of a vehicle to run! Heck, most cross country semi’s have gas tanks in the hundreds of gallons…so they are *VERY* expensive to fill up…but people need this to move their product…so again…stupid comparison!

    Why not include a tanker trailer… This list is a ‘What has the biggest tank’
    Why not the MPG king instead.

    Well I am driving a Mitsubishi Triton 2.5 litre (diesel) VGT engine. Driving around urban areas gives me around 11.5 litres per 100-km whereas on highways/cruising it gives me around 9 to 9.5 litres per 100-km. Which I think it’s pretty good considering the size and weight of the vehicle.
