A few days ago, I got in my car and closed the door. The reminder sticker from the oil change place fluttered down from my windshield and landed on my lap.
Annoyed, I muttered, ‘Stupid cheap oil change reminder stickers. These things can’t even stay on the glass for longer than…’
OK, so before I finish this sentence, remember, I don’t drive very much since I started using public transit as a way to save money.
The sticker was…
7 months old.
I was so busy paying attention to the mileage, I missed that my last oil change was in early November and perhaps I should change it.
I’m annoyed that I’ve slacked on my car maintenance (other than the maintenance scheduled for later this month) but pleased at the fact that I average 4,500 miles a year! Before I started using public transit, my mileage exceeded 25,000 – 30,000 each year!
It’s not the most pleasant or convenient way to travel, but the savings is amazing.
I understand that public transit simply won’t work in some areas and a lot of people have to drive. How many miles do you put on a year?
