I have a 80-miles round trip commute in fairly nice road (when they don't repave the perfectly good road to waste tax money) and drive a Fit Sport, which give pretty good fuel economy of 37 mpg combined most of time. It is now 33.2 mpg combine for the last 1.3k miles since the last oil change with M1 0W20 Extended Performance (yellow cap) instead of the green cap I normally use. I see that an 4-cylinder Accord LX, which has more luxury feature than my Fit Sport, would have a same fuel economy. It will be more expesive to purchase and probably more to ensure but definitely more for properly tax each year. However, I always buy my vehicles new and keep them for as long as possible, then they go on the farm to be use as farm vehicles. I haven't had to do it so far as I still have my 2 vehicles purchased new. I am debating of whether to get an extra Fit (manual this time) or an Accord when my Accord gets way too old. I don't drive the Accord but it gets 100-mile round trip each day for 5 days a week for 6 months and 7 days for the other 6 months. My rationale is that if I spend that much that in a vehicle, I may as well make it enjoyable. Gas cost is about $5k a year for the Accord and $2.5k for the Fit. Vehicle wear and tear is about $4k for Accord and $3k for the Fit. Thanks.
