and the computer is always optimistic with mpg readings. The only way to truly know is by manual calculation.
…But what you are suggesting may apply to you and some others who is conscientious and keep tracking of every receipt and miles that they put on their cars including insurance costs and stickers renewal…, sorry that takes the fun out of it and also that is not an enthusiast way either. The rule of tomb is that you should afford to buy things that you can up keep and I’m sure people who like their cars and welling to pay the cost of up keep could do that for so long if they couldn’t afford it, don’t you think?

It is an Individual paint. Not sure if it is the original paint or not, but the bottom parts are painted. Like you said, they are supposed to be black. You can clearly see the door seals are black when they are supposed to be in body color.
