I was eyeing a Subaru to replace my 94 Volvo 850 turbo, but the family needed a larger vehicle, so I ended up with an 11 Ford Edge.
THEN, I found e-bikes. Now my goal is to see how many miles I can trade out from the Ford onto the e-bike.
I like how you put it as a $150 pay increase. I've only managed to reduce my fuel consumption by 2-3 tanks, but that's about $100-$150. Hopefully, it will pile up someday. Keep riding dogman!
