So, @ around 25mpg over around 12,000 miles the volvo will cost me about £2500 in petrol over a year.
If I were to run the MGB V8 for a year (9mpg + same 12000 miles) it'd be around £6,900. No wonder I could never afford to do half the jobs on it I wanted to do!!!

I also do a lot of fuel usage working out on mine, I don't drive as economically as I could do, I tend to drive more with safety in mind. Offical stats say I should be doing 50mpg, I tend to make around 34-45 mpg depending on whether im doing long distance, running on a higher % of chips etc...
I don't really worry about fuel costs as I get it stupidly cheap anyway
