This comparison only looks at the expected savings for those who use their trucks for business and pleasure. It doesn't take into account the convenience, safety, or efficiency that a TITAN Tank offers.
On a cost-basis alone, a TITAN Tank will pay for itself within 1-3 years, depending how you use your truck.
If you drive about 50,000 miles per year, get 15 mpg, and estimate you can save about 12 cents per gallon* by buying when the price is right, in the first year you will save $400 in fuel and $670 in labor for a total of $1,070 (factoring your time to be worth about $25 per hour).
If you drive about 20,000 miles per year, estimate your time at $15 per hour (average between time spent for business $30 and personal $0), you will save $160 in fuel and $160 in labor for a total of $320 in the first year.
