lol... I don't have time to do the shit I want to, you think washing a car is gonna cut further into that? The guys at the car wash do a good job and I get it detailed once a year, my free time has significant value to me and I don't mind buying more wherever I can.

thanks for the suggestion tho

5% cash back on gas year round, though with their gift cards that comes out to 4%~ cash back. Works at any gas station and whatever you buy inside too

Had a friend complain about $4/gal. I had to laugh. I told her to visit SoCal then complain.
