It’s My Car-iversary!

One year ago today, I picked up my beautiful baby Smart carSmart car from the dealership!

In that time I have:

  • driven 22,000+ km
  • spent $1699.77 on gas

This is pretty close to what I estimated for the one year mark when I hit the 10,000 km mark back in October.

It works out to about 7.5 cents per km – and that’s buying the 91 octane gas, as opposed to the cheap stuff.  I know all this because I’ve been keeping a spreadsheet to track my driving & fuel costs1.  I wanted to see if my car actually gets the advertised mileage of 5.4 L/100km2.  I’m getting a mileage of 6.2 L/100 km3, which is quite different from the 5.9 L /100 km I was getting at the 10,000 km mark4

Happy Birthday, Zaphod Beeblebrox the Car!
