Let's see. My car cost $40k out the door. I paid $10k in interest before I paid it off. I had it 6 years. I paid $1500 a year in car ins. I extended my service contract once for $4k. I put 2 sets of tires on it for $1200. So,
There's 100k miles on it. It gets ~400 miles to the tank. If the average price to fill it is $50 over the last 6 years that's
100k/400*50 = $12.5k
If I sold it today it could supposedly get at least $12k for it so
($65.4k+$12.5k-$12k) / 100k miles = $0.66 per mile.
That means my commute when I worked 40 miles away was costing me $53 a day round trip
Didn't really need an app for that though yea, it would be neat to see the money ticking away. Given that the longer you keep the car the more it's initial cost is spread out if the app showed cost per mile would show the more I drive the better it gets.
Continued... I figured I could probably add in $250 a month for the garage (12*6*250 = $18k) + and various parking charges which I'm just going to take a wild guess is about $50 a month (12*6*50= $3.6k) so
($65.4k+$12.5k-$12k+$18k+$3.6) / 100k miles = $0.88 per mile
Which brings that commute = $70 a day
What else am I forgetting?
$70 a day is ~$1400 a month for commuting 40 miles. I guess that gives you some idea of how big a perk those shuttles from Google, Apple, Genetech, etc are worth at a minimum.
