PT Cruiser Annual Fuel Cost Guide

 

How much does it cost to drive that car each year?

The three charts below represent different scenarios based upon how many miles (10,000, 15,000 or 20,000) you drive annually. Select the chart which best represents your annual mileage. Then cross reference the price you pay, or expect to pay for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline with the miles per gallon (mpg) you achieve with your PT to determine your estimated annual fuel cost.

If you're not sure what your mpg is with your PT, download this mpg Calculator Worksheet PDF file for help. Then use the charts below to determine your annual fuel costs.

Review the Fuel Cost Chart near the bottom of this page for a historic look at gasoline pricing during the last 30 years.
