More useless info

Having waved goodbye to bothe the T-Series and the Cougar in recent times it was time to do a bit of analysis of their running costs throughout the duration of their life to see how they compared with each other and with previous vehicles that have graced the garage(s).

Costs include insurance and registration but exclude anything else.

The vehicles:

1. Series 1 AU TE50 auto - orignally 5.0 litre and later stroked to 5.7.
2. 2000 Ford Cougar - 2.5 V6 auto.
3. Series 1 AU XR6 VCT (comparison 1)
4. EF XR8 (comparison 2)

First off the basic costs:

Fuel

TE50 - 65,516 Km 10,882 Ltr = 16.610 l/100 km (15.64 c/km)
Cougar - 47,735 Km 6,443 Ltr = 13.498 l/100 km (12.18 c/km)
AU XR6 - 21,121 Km 2,811 Ltr = 13.309 l/100 km (9.74 c/km)
EF XR8 - 34,022 Km 4,334 Ltr 12.739 l/100 km (9.55 c/km)

Maintenance

TE50 -$ 8045.81 = 12.28 cents / km
Cougar - $ 1676.68 = 3.51 cents / km
AU XR6 - $ 1336.97 = 6.33 cents / km
EF XR8 - $ 2216.59 = 6.52 cents / km

Other Costs
TE50 - $ 4032.55 = 6.16 cents / km
Cougar - $ 2719.37 = 5.7 cents / km
AU XR6 - $ 889.12 = 4.21 cents / km
EF XR8 - $ 1422.07 = 4.18 cents / km

Total Operating Costs

TE50 = 34.08 cents / km
Cougar = 21.39 cents / km
AU XR6 = 20.28 cents / km
EF XR8 = 20.24 cents / km

Cheers
