I've known I was saving money by driving as little as possible, but I didn't realize how much.
Gasoline here is $1.13 a litre as of today. A 50 litre fill costs $56.50. Filling the car once a week for a year will cost $2,938. That's just the fuel cost. It doesn't include maintenance, repairs or regular servicing.
Going car-light and filling up once a month costs $678 a year, again not including maintenance, repairs or servicing. The difference in fuel costs alone will come to $$2,260 a year.
Even if I lived in Vancouver and needed the most expensive transit pass in the area, I'd still walk away with money in my pocket by going car-light.
I might have to use my calculations the next time starts to whine about fuel costs.
