old fuel prices

interesting site. I have mentioned it here somewhere.

when my car was new in 1987 at 35mpg (combined underestimate) fuel could be found for .79 cents
22 years later, still running, the past 3 years into the 40s unsurprising..
122k miles now..

that would be a grand total of $2753.71 spent. At that rate, to spend $10k in fuel the car would be 79.2 years old, with 439,200 miles on the odemeter to have spent ten thousand in fuel, and the year would be 2066.

As the site address is random useless info, I have decided to share mine as well.
