RockyTop Posted September 16, 2018 Share Posted September 16, 2018 (edited) The van numbers are documented numbers and the EUC numbers are predicted. I know that you can get into some additional high fees for parking and storage for a car in the big cities. Cost of 2007 E350 1 ton van USA 100,000 miles Van $18,000 plus tax $1440 pus tag four years $128 plus Emissions four years $40 = $19,608 insurance $89 per month at 48 months $4,272 gas mileage 13 mpg $2.50 per gallon = $19,230 3 sets of tires at $580 $1,740 19 oil changes at $58 $1,102 air filters wiper blades signal light $242 only repair shiftier linkage $320 total cost $46,514 Then sold van for $3,500 End cost $43,014 that is $0.43 per mile Cost of 2011 ford Transit Connect mini van USA 96,000 miles Note: This vehicle was absolute junk. Could not go 5,000 mile without changing a battery or tire or repair. In the end it through a rod at 96,000 miles and was picked up for scrap metal. I am in a 2015 Ford Transit connect now and it is so much better all around. 86,000 miles so far. No repair yet but it is going to need CV joints soon. Van $23,000 plus tax $1,840 plus tag four years $128 plus emissions four years $40 = $25,008 insurance $89 per month at 48 months $4,272 gas mileage 19 mpg $2,50 per gallon $12,631 17 special tires ( front right every 19,000 miles ) nightmare $2,720 19 oil changes $58 $1,102 air filter, belts, wiper blades, head lights , signal lights $432 brake pads and rotors 4 times $970 $3,880 Battery every 11 months $120 $480 Repairs: coil pack $480 wheel bearing $1,264 wiper motor $357 $2,101 total cost $52,626 trough a rod at 96,000 miles, scrap picked up for free, End cost 52,626 = $0.55 per mile Estimated cost of MSuper 5,000 miles MSuper $1,880 1 tires and 2 tubes $120 ??? board ??? this is guessing future repair $220 Total $2220 sell for $300 end cost $1,920 ($0.38) plus charging at $0.01 per mile = $0.39 per mile Summery E350 1Ton work van $0.43 per mile MSuper $0.39 per mile MSuper has yet to prove it's numbers and the vans are real documented numbers. I think you could do better with a KS16s but I know you could do better with a Honda Civic ( $23,000 at 28mpg and better resale at 100.000 miles) MPGe of EUC’s - Related post on electric miles per gallon equivalent.
