Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discussion Discussion, how much do you spend a year on fuel in General Discussion; how mouch do you spend a year on fuel ?
I just figured the math out and on and im ...
Personally, I can't answer this question. While there are some obsessive car owners out there that track and log mileage numbers, I really don't know what my car gets long term. The price of fuel has really been a roller coaster over the past few years as well, so the numbers really wouldn't mean anything without setting a standard fuel price.
But, I'll play along.
I only drive about 7k a year or so as I've been lucky enough to live within 10 minutes of my jobs, school, family and friends. I also commute by bicycle when the weather permits. Using 3.00/gal and an estimated average mileage of an abysmal 18mpg's, I use about $1200 worth of fuel per year.

Not only do I not know, I don't think I want to know! Both hearses get absolutely ABYSMAL gas milage. Highway, MAYBE 9-10mpg. City it goes to 3-4!! I calculated it once and just decided not to worry about it as they're not daily drivers.
Between all my cars I'm in the neighborhood of $10k per year. The Dodge truck is bad, my E250 van is not that great but travels the most. The Jaguar is bad as well thusfar and my 383 Chevy powered '67 Cutlass isn't faring so well with mileage even though it is a 4 speed trans
