This past weekend I took a little trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles and back. That’s 400 miles there, 400 miles back and about 300 around town miles. At first I was going to take my ’68 Charger and stretch its legs a bit, but at 10 mpg and after figuring out that it would’ve cost me over $500.00 in fuel, I decided against it. Then I considered taking my Dodge Magnum SRT8. However at a combined mpg of 16 mpg that would’ve run me over $300.00. My solution? I rented a Chevrolet Cruze from Hertz for $85 for the weekend, used my own insurance and spent a total of $120 in fuel. So, for just a tad over $200 I got there and back without using any of my own cars.
Damn… I really need to think about updating my garage.
