I am 15, and i want a rocket ship.

My parents will pay half, what are estimates on fuel costs. Also, should I go with one or two turbo boosters.

While you are at it, spare a few dollars, so you can buy an ashtray so you can be buried in it...

Go for the 2-turbo boosters, and don't forget the status package and chrome "rims".
