You know your own gassers mileage so do the math at $4.09 per gallon which is our current local price. It has saved me alot of money already and I really like the car. Perfect commuter car, great looks and snappy handling.
In your estimation, how long will it take to make back the difference in purchase price between the FFE and, say, an SE?
