In my last post I wanted to know how much it costs to operate my Geo Metro and Yamaha Vino in a year, so I could compare it to alternative methods of getting around. I turns out that with Mint.com, which I use to do a lot of my budgeting, that was easy. Over the past year, including upgrades and my trip to Portland, it cost over $3000, which really isn’t bad. This doesn’t include the probably 80+ hours I spent working on the car, but I actually usually enjoy doing that, and intend to ride herd on my time management well enough to still be able to do it.
|Auto Costs May 2012 – April 2013 (Metro + Vino)|
|Service and Parts||$1,256.00|
|Road Trip Gas||$458.00|
