I joined June 30th of this year. For the 3 months shown in my gas log, my ZX2 and I went 8631 miles (yeah almost 3000/month), used 212.64 gallons of gas, for an average of 40.59 mpg. The EPA combined avg is 25 mpg for a total of 345.24 gallons to go that far. A difference of 132.60 gallons not bought or used. At my 3 month average of $3.96/gal, I have spent $525.10 less than the goverment rating says I should have. I do drive mostly highway miles though, so using the 30 mpg EPA highway rating, I did'nt spend $297.25. This is $100 to $175 per month I did not spend on gas!

God bless us one and all.

I do know that as of about 8months of ownership(I'm at 11 now) I'd saved about $475 in gas driving Box vs my old Subaru Outback.
I figured all of mine manually. I also keep a running total of total miles driven, number of miles between fill ups, amount of fuel used each fill up, total fuel used, tank MPG and average MPG on a Microsoft Works Spreadsheet. Maybe I should add a column for total fuel saved then it could be updated at every fill up. I'm not aware of any way to total everything on the gassavers web site.

@ Holy Cow...

Damn you're good. I'm almost afraid to ask... If I dropped a box of toothpicks on the floor could you tell me how many were still in the box? I guess I'm the same with my cell phones. I always hack the phone's operating systems and set them up custom the way I want them Everyone has their special talent.

just since January I have saved 146.694 gallons. I got this number by taking the miles traveled in my log and divide by the milage I was averaging before I came here 18mpg then subtract the fuel I've used in my log.


369.385 gallons at 18 mpg over 6648.93 miles (roughly) VS
222.6911 gallons at 30 mpg over the same miles saved 146.694 gallons

if you figure 3.25/gal average price that a savings of $475.288

Havn't saved much gas.......................But I spent less for it. 5% less.

Here's how:

I got a Costco-American Express Card. Yes it is my Costco card.





Any business qualifies; Amway, Consultant, E-Bay Sales.
Membership is $100.00. You can save that much in half a years gas purchases, and, for example, I just paid around $200.00 for three glasses perscriptions.

Depends on how you figure gas savings...I acquired my '91 Geo about the same time as I joined here. So, if I figure out how much I have saved by driving the Geo as opposed to driving the Cad (which was what I was driving before I got the Geo) it would be:

About 28,000 miles, divided by 37 mpg (Geo lifetime) =757 gallons = $3028 (757 times $4/gallon)
28,000 miles, divided by 20 mpg (Cad) = 1400 gallons = $5600 (1400 times $4/gallon).

Savings of $2572. Now, maybe not all of that can be attributed directly to this website (I was looking for a Geo or similar car before I came here) but the positive reinforcement for the use of saner driving techniques (I used to drive to work at about 80 mph...) and a couple tips and tricks has probably added a couple hundred to what I would have saved anyway.

102,000 km in the smart over a little less than 4 years as opposed to the Peugeot 405 DL: it would have been 8364 L versus the actual 3988 L. At average prices of fuel, it's about $5000 saved, after factoring in the diesel price differential.

My numbers would be astronomical if I compared my Escort to the Lincoln MK IV I use to have that only got about 10-11 MPG locally and about 14 highway.
