$4200 for fuel

Just finished analyzing my fuel costs for the year and it cost me $4200 last year in fuel for my Jeep to drive 25,000 miles. Yikes!!!

If my math is correct then your fuel cost is .17 per mile or $1.70 for every 10 miles. If you averaged 15mpg (I'm sure that is high) your average cost per gallon is $2.55.

That means you used about 1,666 gallons of fuel.

This doesn't have any real bearing but is a fun excercise with a "what if" question.

I'd say my average price was .20-.25 higher.

Come on folks, if ya can afford the XK, you surely can afford driving it around, at any cost. Nothing but the best I say... so fill her up and use it as much as you can...

That's the way I look at it. Sure, the mileage and gas prices suck, but that's life with a truck. I spent a ton on gas this holiday season with all the family travel that I did, but it was worth it for me. At least we were comfy and safe when we were up in the mountains.
