my annual mileage used to be 26k - bear in mind we pay £0.83p per litre of petrol (£3.14 per gallon approx).
At 35mpg that works out as 742 gallons of petrol bought each year, or £2332.57 spent at my local petrol station.
That's around $3732 to all you guys who don't know/don't care what a £ is!!
This is why I drive a 316
Apologies for lame post, just wasting some valuable "work time"
