Taxi Meter for Freeloaders

Now that gasoline prices are on the rise again, it's time to start thinking about ways to keep the old gas tank topped off.

If you end up being the designated driver for your group of freeloading friends, it can be awkward if they allow you to shuttle them around but never chip in for the fuel.

Sure, you could ask them nicely to help out, but where's the fun in that?

Go the passive-aggressive route with this replica Japanese taxi meter. As they hop in the car, start the meter, and glance in the rearview mirror to catch their look of surprise and horror. They'll be confused, too, because the meter reads in yen.

I hope your friends have currency converters on their iPhones. Otherwise, they'll die from shock when they see the bill.
