How Much Gasoline Did I Use?

So, since this weekend was payday, I fuelled my truck, as I do each and every payday. I top up the tank on the payday to ensure that I have fuel, and to make it easier to budget.

Well, this was the first payday since I have started driving again, and since the solar system was installed. 

This means that this was the first payday that I didn’t have to fill up my generator fuel can as well as fuelling up the truck.

So, the only thing I was doing was replacing the fuel that I burned, as in all of the fuel that I have burned since last payday.

It was . . . 

As in the cost of replacing that fuel was . . .

$16.10

Yep, that’s it for two weeks of driving. Then again I only move the truck on weekends, as in too and from Western Home, and a dip down to check my mail.

The cost was around 96 Cents a litre (so about a $1.00 a litre cheaper than the Vancouver area) so it was not bad, but not incredibly cheap.

While it is a nice win and a small amount, it is nice to see a bit of the savings that the solar system is giving me. 

While it will be a while for it to pay for itself, I will take the fact that my fuel budget has been cut in half.

I am always looking for ways to cut my expenses in order to maximize the cash I am putting into my savings accounts.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
