The same trip at 30 mpg = 26 gls, or $104

Pack a lunch and eat at a picnic area. Save the $25 this way. Or take a paying passenger.

The virtue of the CV is that a well-maintained one lasts many, many years and miles.
Ditto that 30MPG is achievable and still be a good cruizer for another 100k miles
