I just go back from filling up my truck with $60 of gas. Ouch. So I thought I’d look at old posts I had about fuel cost savings.
First is that fuel in April 2006 was $2.60, which is more than I thought. Seemed to me out costs had skyrocketed in a year, but they’ve been in this range for over a year. I just paid $2.95/ gallon at Costco for regular unleaded.
Suzuki’s fuel savings numbers have been adjusted since I last looked. They are now look at the cost being $2.90. They also assume 22 MPG, and even my truck make 17 MPG on average. Which is the same as my RX-8.
Not that I’m going to get a motorcycle. There is the danger factor, but there is also just the cost.
