Might as well have an intro with some Meat .
In my life I have good memories of Toyotas my sisters 1972 Ha , My used Tacoma
BUT Gone due to a accident at 285,000 miles .
Well what went down is I have a Honda ridgeline & Chevy silverado , year 2011 on each , great autos
7 months ago took on a job (painter journeymen in union) I love but plenty of driving. Focusing on the job so much that fuel I excepted as a business expense
WELL SAYING THAT AND LIVING IT ARE TWO DIFERENT THINGS . after 7 months I toss in the towel
I say UNCLE , this is not going to work I AM GETTIN BROKE . I sat down looked over my records & faced the truth , work @ 2 months driving cost $1,500
personal use for two months adds another $600 = $2,100 heading for $12,600 per year & but in last 7 months at $6000 to $7000 what ever this is Blinding & since fuel prices spiked I have been in a fuel cost burn . What does help is separate income from scrapping metal allowing trucks to earn But fuel cost can exceed that extra side work $$ . Conclusion I am going broke
Fuel - Food - House cost -Yada Yada . This is REAL Id almost say an attempt to destroy lives.
I pushed on & seeked help from my favorite used car dealer a 2008 Prius 137,000 mile just came in on trade . With looks only a mother could love
yes it's bit tattered on the outside . Then I drove it ,wow , smooth not a rattle it just ran so sweet , shifts so smooth silent motor This is a freak ..
The test drive sneaks to 50 mph barely touching peddle
look at the center dash screen & there it is 45 - 55 - 64 - 72 ?? MPG mostly above 55 MPG .This is a life changer . Loan paper work signed
I'll have Prius in 2 days .
I'm here to learn & share . Look this is equal to my only survival and I must keep this car right . My life depends on it Let the fun begin
Howdy to all .
