Just off the top of my head figuring at $2 a gallon for gas $2.25 for diesel in the last few years, figuring all maintenance, registration, insurance, repairs ect. Not counting the initial purchase costs I came up with the cost per mile of my 3 primary vehicals. Doing all repairs and maintenance myself.
1977 Kawasaki KZ650 motorcycle, $0.12 a mile
1997 Ford F350 Diesel truck, $0.34 a mile
1984 Honda GL1200 Aspencade, $1.70 a mile
I hope things improve someday on this Aspencade, not doing real well.
