Saw this pop up earlier, I was trying to work out the fuel costs for that many miles.

I think i worked it out to be about 60k.

240.000 miles @ 16mpg = 15,000 gallons.

15,000 gallons @ £4 per gallon = £60,000.

I may get shot down of course. Just some basic calculations.

Must have been a motorway muncher.
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there!
