Ride: 5.0 AU's and 5.0 Maverick

Power: 139 rwkw

Location: Sydney West
NSW, Australia

5.0 V8 Maverick. Dont work out weekly running costs as it would depress me. I just put fuel in it as it wants it.
Building a V8 XF ute. Will be the same story. DOnt care on running costs just have to enjoy them.

$35-40 per week (V-Power only) all short trips as well roughly 300-400kms. I usually add Lucas petrol treatment every forghtnight roughly 200mls to 1/2 a tank.
