|Price ||Savings/Gallon ||BreakEven|
As we can see as the price of gas increases the gallons needed to break even decrease.
What we can now do is take this break even and multiply by your vehicles average MPG to see how many miles you'd need to drive to start gaining versus the $1000 rebate.
For example take $4.00 gas with a breakeven of 398 gallons.
Drive the Hyundai Vera Cruz @ 23MPG you will need to drive 9163 miles to start break even. Not bad.
Now if you drive a more efficient model.
The Hyundai Accent @ 35 MPG you will need to drive 13944 miles.
