After a long wait since my first installation of this series on the real cost of car ownership, I am here to add this to the mix. I guess you could see it as supplemental to that post, since fuel economy and car ownership are inextricably linked.
Now, you may be wondering why I think that you give any hoots about what my gas mileage is when you’re vehicle is not the same? Well, although I will get funky with a little bit of basic arithmetic and algebra, like most of my posts the point is the message – the mindset – rather than the details. For me, gathering some data on something – some real, hard, data that I myself went and got on my own – that has a monumental impact on my ability to incorporate real change into my life around that thing around which I am gathering data.
