I'm assuming an average of 35 mpg. I only started hypermiling last fall, and have owned the Green Machine since May.

Price of the green machine: $0
Price of registering it: $20
Maintenance: $0
Oil changes: $150
Fuel: $1440ish
Insurance: $1100
Miles driven: 22000

11.545 cents per mile thusfar.

I try to keep an up to date cents/km in the description of my garage entry. Right now it's around 28 cents CAD per mile.

Edit: gasoline alone is 7.3 cents CAD per mile.

i bought my car within the past year -- so my numbers are quite high...

Estimating Some of These
Car: $6,000
Maintenance: $100
Fuel: $850
Insurance: $900 (and that's without any violations/accidents on my record)
Registration: $65
Miles: ~10,000

Cost/Mile = 79 cents/mile and falling
Cost of Car Aside - ~20 cents/mile and I just started hypermiling.

Insurance is a killer :/

Oh I wish! At least my gas bills wouldn't be so high if I lived in the USA. Just filled today: $31 for 8.5 gallons. I remember when $30 was mucho birthday money!

In the time that I have owned my current car (june 6th 2005) I have spent $6,673.97 including:
price paid ($1925),
oil changes ($75.50)
tires ($448.91),
transmition ($453.28 with new clutch, axle seals, and reserficed fly wheel),
suspention ($684.45)
even a new radio ($214.65)
along with gas, insurance, title, and all that other stuff.
In that time I've travled around 31,900 miles, that comes to 20.9 cents per mile.


now my motorcycle is much cheaper!
I put 2000 miles on it last summer.
$0 paid (got in trade + the least amount of cash I would have taken for the cycle I was selling)
$23 for collector plates
$40 for title transfer
$30 for paint
$60 for tires
$75 for gas

of course I don't need insurance, and the lisence never expires.

11.4 cents per mile

Man, insurance is a killer. So far I'm in it about 13-14 cents per mile with the two VWs, two nighthawks, and pickup. But that's only for ~10kmiles on the bunny and 10k on the truck w/o parting anything, and a new battery and starter pushing the cost up. I'll hopefully stabilize at ~6-8 cents per mile or less for a compact, pickup, and motorcycle all insured and running. The Camry pissed me off. I got it with ~90k miles (~170k now), and ~50k miles have been at ~23mpg, when they could've been at ~33mpg, and saved me the kbb value of the damn car!

$300 a year for insurance w/o collision, $50 for reg, $800 for gas (75mpg@$3/gal), plus whatever for upkeep/initial cost ($300 per year average? A rebuilt engine should last ~300-500k miles at $1500, junk yard parts or lifetime warranty aut0z0n3, etc... And I've paid ~$800 for both rabbits and misc parts.) over 20k miles per year is ~6-8 cents per mile for the rabbit. The truck's more expensive, but I'll likely only put insurance on it and drive it when I need it. The nighthawk should be about the same as the rabbit. Worst case scenario is I drive the rabbit like everyone else and only get 50mpg, so the cost jumps to ~8-10 cents per mile. It sucks, but unless I knock down at least 20k miles per year a legal'ish VO system/permit is not financially worthwhile. I may try for a hook-up from one of the heavy VO users/collectors since ~100 gallons may be able to get me through a year of ~8k miles.

Man some of you guys are paying next to nothing for insurance! Guess I need to drive MORE to lower my cost per mile since the oil changes are taken care of and insurance cost is fixed.
