    get through sg

    Hi,

    I was wondering whether we must use "many", "a lot of" etc. in front of "get through sg"?
    Are the examples fine?


    1 The firemen got through difficulty bringing the fire under control.
    2 My old Buick is getting through (a lot of) gas.
    3 They got through (a whole bunch of) chips as they watched the TV.

    2 & 3 are fine, but 1 doesn't work for me.

    I see...and should we use "a lot of", "a bunch of" etc. or they can be left out?
