Mazda MPV down to five cylinders

Friday the MPV went to five cylinders from six.

How much have I spent on gas the last 13 years?

250K miles div 20 MPG is 12200 gallons times $4 a gallon is $48800 div 13 years is $3750 per year.

If you double the gas mileage to 40 MPG over the life of the car, $24,400 savings or $1880 per year.

Replace with:

2013 Mazda MAZDA3 Sedan i Grand Touring at $22,800 for 40 MPG
2013 Honda CR-V SUV at $23,378 for 30 MPG
2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan at $40,000 for 40 MPG

Val picked:
2013 Honda Fit Hatchback at $15,425 for 27 MPG

For a new car, lets say $20K for 15 years or $1333 per year.
For a used car, lets say $10K for 10 years or $1000 per year.
For a new engine for the MPV, lets say 5K for 5 years or $1000 per year.
