    Default Gas money your car has eaten during its lifespan

    Was just curious how much money it has cost just for the car to simply go from point A to B without maintenance costs etc. I just divided the mileage by the average distance per tank and multiplied it by the average cost of a gas tank between now and 93.

    The car has gone through about $21 000 worth of gas... Kind of sobering...

    Hahaha, how about you guys?

    1) Gas consumed during ownership: Have had the car for nearly 13000 kms now. The average distance per tank is around 825-850kms and each tank costs almost exactly $25 to fill up (diesel price has stayed at 59.9 for as long as I can remember)
    Total = $375 of fuel to run 13000kms since the time it was purchased (In September)

    2) Gas consumed since new: Total kms on the car is like 122k....so total cost of fuel from the day the first owner took it off the lot: $3588
