About $1000 for about 15000 miles early-feb to early-feb. I expect it might be about the same or less this year, depending on gas prices.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

About $1000 for me. My math came up in the 900's for my average fuel use, but I picked "$1000-2000" since I occasionally take unplanned trips.

approx 500 miles on the Mustang at <=18mpg
approx 2000 miles most likely less on the Jeep at <15mpg
maybe 5000 each on the truck and car at >20.

We had a lot of trips for family events half way accross the country this year.

We might have broken $2000 last year.

~$2460 for ~21,000 miles and ~593 gallons of fuel (diesel & gasoline)... that gives (with some rounding):
- 12 cents / mile
- 35 mpg
- $4.18 / gallon (diesel and premium is pricey!)

This is across 3 cars; one diesel at ~50mpg (73% of total miles), one regular gasoline at ~27mpg (9% of total miles), and one premium gasoline at ~21mpg (18% of total miles)
