This sure sounds like a reasonable explanation. It's probably the cause. Kind of
strange -- the booster on the car was brand new two years ago, so this new one
means two boosters in two years of driving.
Let's see, these things are $300 apiece, I've put 15,000 miles on the car in
those two years, so that means, um, at $600 divided by 15,000 miles gives $0.04
per mile for brake boosters, while gasoline, at $1.30 a gallon and 25 mpg gives
gasoline cost of $0.05.
Of course, this is one of those calculations that I dare not show my wife. She
would probably get ideas about amortizing my total racing costs over the track
time minutes I get and that is a truly awful ratio.........
