ishtarastarte,You wrote, IIRC, you included GAS in that $250/year figure, and that's what I can't figure out.I don't think you recall correctly. (Actually you could just look.)What NoIDAtAll actually wrote was, Vehicles I've owned since I was 18 have cost me an average of $250/year, excluding gas, oil and insurance ...He explicitly excluded gas, oil and insurance from that figure.You should also take his statement a little tongue in cheek, because that's probably an average that spans a few decades. The cost and complexity of cars have gone up over those years the same as everything else, so it's extremely unlikely NoIDAtAll's cars will continue to cost him $250/year going forward. Even so, it's a pretty bold claim. Even if you adjust for historical inflation (I don't really know his time frame, so I can't really adjust) and say that going forward he's only expecting to pay $500/year, that's still quite cheap.- Joel
