Bean is One!

Exactly a year ago today, I got Bean (our Nissan Cube).  I love it.  It is fun to drive, the dogs fit perfectly and I haven't had any problems with it.  The only thing that I don't like is the windshield.  I have never had so many cracks!  It has at least 8 chips.  I think it is because it is so vertical... at least that is my theory.  We could just have a lemon of a windshield though.  Regardless, we are going to have to replace it soon.

Like the nerd that I am, I kept track of every time I filled the tank.  (Dad, you must be so proud!)  So here are some stats....

In one year Bean and I:

  • travelled 20,821 km.  
  • visited the gas station 45 times 
  • purchased 1,768.41 litres of gas 
  • spent an average of $1.075/L for a total of $1,901.  
  • cost $0.091 per km to drive (gas expense only). 
  • got an average of 34.21 MPG  (our best was 41.22 MPG and our worst was 26.91 - must have been windy that week!)

Happy Birthday Bean.  Here's to many more happy travels together!

Glad you like the "Bean". I wished I could say the same about our vehicle.
