ss gas vs v6 gas

I just recently came from owning a v6 for 2 yrs, cost average for a full tank between $38- $55 depending on the economy. Now that was using regular, on my ss I filled up last night with 93 octane 11 gallons for $44 thats not much more than the v6 price. Now my ss is the a6. But If people are still concerned with the price of gas to which they should get a 6 or ss IMO its not that different in price maybe $4-5 when u fill up.

Yes, but that's to fill up. And in some places like where I live, it's gonna cost $65 to fill all the way up. The SS is gonna burn a lot quicker, so I highly doubt at the end of the day they are the same because your gonna have to fill up one more than the other over time.

a one year overall gas + insurance cost savings would be a better comparison.

my insurance actually dropped $12 a month upgrading to the ss, I am aware the ss isnt gonna get gas like the 6 but its not a whole lot differnet, now keep in mind I dont let the fuel get to E unless something prevents me from fillling up.
