Random Chart Day: My Car

I've owned my new Honda Accord 2012 for a year now. Surprisingly, I've only filled the tank 20 times, and only driven about 6000 miles. This is why it's nice to live within 7 miles of where you work. The table below shows the raw data from my gas tank fill-ups. You can click on the column headers to sort on a column.

Lessons Learned:

  • The average price of gas this past year has been $3.64 per gallon.
  • On average, I go about 300 miles before filling up.
  • I'm averaging 21.4 miles per gallon. I saw my best MPG in rural Waynesboro.
  • If someone were to steal my car tomorrow, I would have paid about $4.45 per mile for the luxury of driving this past year, not including insurance. I should have just hired a taxi or a music major!
