Make a garage entry so that we can all learn more about your vehicle.

I'd reccomend an insight, With that much driving, it should pay for its self fairly quickly.

But seriously, let us see what your driving, and some more information on the commute, speeds, types of roads etc..

WElcome to the boards!

Mac -

Welcome to the site. I couldn't imagine what you have to go through every day . Please tell us about your car and your commute.

Wow 262 miles. The commom recommedation is to drive slower to increase FE, but I think you need to get longer gears and maintain the speed to get home in a timely manner.

It is possible he is getting paid from the time he leaves, until the time he returns home. In that case it MIGHT be worth the very very long drive.
I cannot see me driving that far to get to work and back.

Welcome Mac,

I have to say you are insane Really thats around 65k per year, if you buy a new car its shot in about 3 years

Your best bet is to buy a cheap car that gets good mpg.
when I used to drive 100 miles a day I bought a new festiva, it paid for itself in a couple of years.
