I have a problem only with the cost of fuel.
If you want to create any more problems for
me, I don't appreciate it.

You do see the problem here, right? Let's go over all the figures one
You told us that you determined that it cost you 0.27 per mile based on 18
MPG, which works out to $4.85 per gallon.
Then you told us the gas was actually only $4.03 per gallon.
Then you told us that it cost you $30.85, which at $4.03 per gallon means
you bought 7.655 gallons.
You also said you drove 114 miles.
114 / 7.655 is 14.89 MPG, not 18 MPG.
So if it really does cost you $0.27 per mile, then you are not getting 18
MPG. Maybe you got 18 MPG when the truck was new (or new to you) or maybe
you weren't towing a boat or maybe the truck is having problems now, but
bottom line is your numbers don't work out to 18 MPG based on everything
else you've told us.
