i plan on going down to the Taste of Chaos concert next week, and i need to know how much gas money to give my friend. She says her car get about 33 mpg on a good day, and it costs $20 to fill her tank. The concert is about 100 miles away, and we need to get there and back. If i could find the gas tank size, which she doesn't know, it'd be easy to figure this out, but google didn't help much, and i don't know much about cars. She has a 1991 Mercedes 190E. If someone could help me figure out gas tank size, or how much money i need, i'd really appreciate it.

Sorry if this sounds like a complicated math story problem :P

100 miles divided by 33 miles per gallon equals 3 gallons. Pay her enough money to buy 3 gallons of gas, and then a little more because you're not a cheapass.

How does $5 sound? Maybe $10?

we have to figure out how much money we need total beforehand, none of us have jobs and we have to scrape together the money

Siphon gas tanks or find your ass a job.

20 bucks to fill the tank just figure how much gas is per gallon. lets say gas is 2 dollars per gallon then she has a 10 gallon tank. now figure out how many miles you are going and how many gallons of gas that will take. 33mpg is about 3 gallons there which is $6.

You'll need approximately $60, assuming it is $20 per fill.

Id say bring about $80 and next time go to a closer concert

There is no point except party and be healthy and happy. Also money is not something to live for. If i didnt need money for drugs and beer i would give mine away.
