I made my first ownership update a couple of days after I got it. Back then I started with fuel economy, so that’s where I’ll start.
Since I’ve been out of high school, I haven’t really had a daily driver. I didn’t have a car on campus in college, my sister had my explorer. Once I graduated, I had 9 months at home before my job started. Once my job started, I was in the oil field for 6 days at a time then home for 3 days. Then I got laid off and spent 11 months unemployed. Now that I have a job with a normal schedule, I drive everyday to work. In fact it’s about a 74 mile round trip, meaning I do a lot of driving. Meaning that I care about fuel economy. I decided to document my costs related to this car so I can see how much it costs me to drive it.
