Well... you can buy a new rig that gives you 17 MPG,
or buy an old rig that gives you 10 MPG.
If you drive across the continent, say, 3,000 miles.
The new rig will consume 176 gal. At @$2.50/gal, that's $441.
The old rig will consume 300 gal. At @$2.50/gal, that's $750.
A difference of $300.
I don't think it is a deal breaker.
