Engine work was done on my vehicle. Manifold and other gaskets were replaced on my 13 year-old pickup truck. I am pleased with the result. The gas milage has improved 3-4 MPG. There is an increase of 60 miles more driven per 15 gallon tank of gas. Over 100k miles driven I gain 23,520 miles which is = to 92.24 tanks of gas. Assumming a static price of $3.85 per gallon or $57.75 per tank of gas, I will save $5,326.86 over 100,000 miles. Therefore, the manifold gasket replacement gives me a projected ROI of $4,586, a substantial ROI at today's gasoline prices. However my ROI will increase as gasoline prices increase. Therefore this gasket replacement work meets the investment criteria.
Thanks Village Transmission!
