I did my analysis using the EPA window sticker numbers to keep everything equal across all variations as those numbers are derived similarly and take out the variability of user input and "field" number that take on A LOT of data variability and dirty data
I traded a 07 GMC Canyon 4 cyl 5 speed to get my 17 ED Laramie. My last calculation showed that the Canyon would have saved me two cents over 350 miles of driving. So, at about 21k miles on the ED, I could have saved $1.20 over the last 15 months. Of course that doesn't take into account the failing ABS system that needed replacing to get the Canyon to pass the upcoming state inspection.
