EPA Fuel Economy Estimates
Did anybody notice that the estimated annual fuel cost was $2,088 based on 15000 miles at $49.00 per gallon?
Using this "data" and the estimated "42 miles per gallon on the highway", I come up with an annual fuel cost of $17,499.86 but since most of my driving is in the city at 10mpg it really will cost me $73,500 per year for gas. Is this why some Maserati people say " if you have to ask, you can't afford it"?
"These estimates reflect new EPA methods beginning with 2008 models." Ah, that explains everything---especially for a 2005 car.
Oh well, it's nice to have the "factory sticker" anyway
