  • when i can no longer avoid getting expelled i'll change schools

  • it cost 10 dollars more in/on gas per day to drive a car than a moped/rather than a moped/it's 10 dollars more expensive in gas per day to drive a car than a moped I'm not sure about this one I'd say FIRST and THIRD

  • wait unil he gets back to call/bedfore calling wait until he gets back to call
  • it will cost me 10 dollars in gas to drive a moped per day rather than 20 if i were to drive a car OK but you can also use INSTEAD OF 20... OR AS OPPOSED TO 20...

  • i won't forget what you have done for me for the rest of my life, at least the reaminder of my life/remaining of my life

  • i'll buy you it if you take it out of my debt i owe you OK but I OWE YOU is implied
  • you're using that as an excuse to not move out of your house/not to move out of your house BOTH but NOT TO MOVE OUT is better

Hi,

  • I hope that you are going to start punctuating and using capitals in future posts,as i suggested. earlier. The lack of this makes all these sentences wrong. It also makes them a little harder for me to understand quickly.

  • when i can no longer avoid getting expelled i'll change schools OK

  • it cost 10 dollars more in/on gas per day to drive a car than a moped/rather than a moped/it's 10 dollars more expensive in gas per day to drive a car than a moped I'm not sure about this one I'd say FIRST and THIRD Yes

  • wait unil he gets back to call/before calling wait until he gets back to call Both


    • it will cost me 10 dollars in gas to drive a moped per day rather than 20 if i were to drive a car OK but you can also use INSTEAD OF 20... OR AS OPPOSED TO 20... yes

    • i won't forget what you have done for me for the rest of my life, at least the reaminder of my life/remaining of my life
    • For the rest/remainder of my life, I won't forget what you have done for me.

    • i'll buy you it if you take it out of my debt i owe you OK but I OWE YOU is implied Yes


      • you're using that as an excuse to not move out of your house/not to move out of your house BOTH but NOT TO MOVE OUT is better Yes

Hi,

for the sentence



it cost 10 dollars more in/on gas per day to drive a car than a moped/rather than a moped/it's 10 dollars more expensive in gas per day to drive a car than a moped



its MORE IN GAS and not MORE ON GAS right???

The bolded part is not a sentence.

Clive
i know but would it be

it cost 10 dollars more in/on gas per day to drive a car than a moped

is it IN or ON that is right??
Hi,

it cost 10 dollars more in gas per day to drive a car than a moped

it cost 10 dollars more on gas per day to drive a car than a moped

Please be courteous enough to offer sentences that are as correct as you can make them.

Thank you, Clive

Hi,

It cost 10 dollars more in gas per day to drive a car than a moped. This is the standard way of saying it.

'Cost' makes the statement past tense. Did you mean to write 'costs'?

It cost 10 dollars more on gas per day to drive a car than a moped. I wouldn't say this is wrong. I wiuldn't say 'for is wrong, either. But 'in' is better.

sorry about that again , ill try and get rid of the habit Thank you.

Hello Clive,

How are you?

I had one question regarding RATHER THAN.

I'm going to buy you a car rather than/instead of a motorcycle.
Rather than/Instead of buying you a motorcycle, I'm going to buy you a car

Which of these could be said please?

Thank you very much Clive
