The other day, Laura Acuna, the housekeeper, needed to go to the store, so we piled into the car and drove her there. However, the car was running low on gas and we had to pull into a gas station along the way. Check this out!
1 Wow, driving this big SUV sure burns a lot of gas! We SOOO need a hybrid SUV, ASAP!
2 So that's how you pump gas. I'll just follow that white truck's lead and put that hose into the gas tank.
3 Sharkey, I'll push the buttons if you lift the nozzle.
4 Now clip that little latch on the handle and it will pump automatically.
5 Gas sure has a distinctive aroma.
6 Sharkey, did you know that you can improve gas mileage by simply keeping your tires properly inflated?
7 And always avoid lengthy engine idling. You should turn your engine off when you are delayed for more than a couple of minutes.
8 And always have your car tuned regularly. An engine tune-up can improve car fuel economy by an average of 1 mile per gallon!
9 Well, let me tell you that Sharkey and I have enough 'gas' to power an entire fleet of SUVs!
10 We can't help it, but it's common knowledge that we Frenchies are a 'gassy' breed!
