Well the gas savings are in my favor… my commute is 36 miles one way my cage is a 99 Monte Carlo gets about 28 mpg…. 24 if theres a good song on the radio. Using $4 a gallon as an example it costs me $48 to fill up, and I get around 225-250 miles to the tank. Now my Vulcan… 4gallon tank but I only use the 3 cause well…. I am a chicken to trust the reserve., get about 150-165 miles to the tank on the Vulcan… again with music varies. So thats $12 against $48 …but we will add another $12 to push 2 fill ups to the one in the Monte…. $24 for 300 miles vs. $48 for 250 ( with a tail wind and bad music)…. DING DING …WE HAVE A WINNER!!
I am more fortunate though in the maintenance area, I work for a tire company and get serious discounts when I need tires and the maintenance, well after I use up the program through the dealer, Being a auto mechanic I can just get the manuals and knock it out myself .
And accessories…. well lets just say lesson learned from my Jeeping days. (Just Empty Every Pocket , is more a warning then joke)
