    Guess he has a place to live for 4 years but then the rent really goes up.

    So at 8 mpg, which might not be possible, he's making about 86 cents per mile. Wonder what other fixed expenses he has on top of that, I'm assuming insurance isn't built into the lease payment. Even with no other fixed expenses and a warranty that's still not good money.
