Another fill-up: update on our savings

We had a little less than a quarter of a tank on Tuesday, so I stopped in to fill up. Prices of regular gas have dropped about twenty-five cents per gallon in the past ten days; hopefully the trend continues. We did well on the last tank, averaging 30.7 miles per gallon as shown in our spreadsheet:

With our commuting schedule, it looks like we'll be filling up every 10 days or roughly three times per month. Most interesting is our cumulative savings over our prior vehicle. It would have cost us $105.47 more over the past 20 days if we still had our Dodge Dakota. Hey, I don't mind saving $5 a day; that really adds up, not to mention the lower exhaust emissions too!

I think you had better check you math - the first tank resulted in 26.2 mpg not 30.6 and the second tank resulted in 30.0 mpg not 30.7.
