Then give the money to buy a "commuter car" and I will drive it!
Right now, I ONLY have the truck, so what do all you rocket scientist
suggest I do. To make money I have to work, to get to work I have to
drive, to drive I have to use my truck as that is all I have. Hmm...
One can pick up a beater commuter car around here (old Honda or
Toyota) for the cost of your fuel savings over a year or two.
Of course there are additional costs associated with another car
(especially an old one) that would cut into the return on investment
I once had a temporary job down in CT that ran from March to November
when funding would go away, so I decided to do the 83 mile each way
commute rather than move, so I understand why you might choose to
stick out the commute over other options.
[I used a cheap old VW Rabbit for my "econocar" for many years and it
worked quite well at 32 mpg.]
I used to be a driving fool (not dangerous,just loved to drive!) and I
still am to slightly lesser degree, but that 170 mile round trip
commute got old fairly soon and I was glad when it ended!
