    Do these phrases go well with "how much more do I need to"

    I am going to make up three examples below.

    (1) I am raising funds for charity. I have not been keeping track of the amount I have collected so far. I am wondering how much more I need to obtain (or attain) a certain sum.

    (2) I have only $2 with me. I want to take the bus home, but I do not know the transit fare scheme. I am wondering how much more I need to pay the full fare.

    (3) I want a faster shipping service from here to Mexico. I am wondering how much more I need to add to upgrade the shipping service.


    Are these sentences grammatically correct? Thanks a lot.

    All three are grammatically correct and also very natural.
