Abcess Makes the Fart Go HONDA
The dilemma is whether or not to get a zippy little commuter car for Rich and I'll use the CRV for the couple times per week that I use a car. But that would be his third new car in a row, and I think on principal, it's MY turn.
We were going to look at the Honda Fit, which gets decent mileage. It gets a combined fuel economy of about 30 MPG, vs the CRV which gets about 20. But Rich and I are rather large and I'm not sure we'd be comfortable in it. So, I'm wondering if they make a Honda Fat?
I am a horrible energy hogging consumer, but I don't think I'd feel good about trading in my sturdy accord for a little tinny car. I also was thinking Minivan because I want to be able to drive the kids around and do some carpooling.
It's a conundrum. The thing is, I barely drive at all. I put maybe 5k miles per year on a car. So, even at $3/gallon gas the difference between 20 & 30 miles per gallon is less than $100/year. but when I need a car, I really need to get somewhere, so becoming a 1 car family would be kind of hard at this point. And there is the guilt that if I buy a gas guzzling minivan I will singlehandedly turn the planet into a bubbling cesspool before my kids finish high school. But at least I can carpool them there, so I think one minivan would be better than 2 sedans going to the same place...
I'll probably go around and around this thing in my head until the year ends and the super cheap lease deals are all gone.
