No doubt it was costly, but in the grand scheme of things, it was probably less expensive than the transport costs. Even at $100/ft, that would "only" be $5600. A tank of gas (assuming you're filling 500gal of the 580gal total capacity for a "fill up") is going to be $1500-$2000, depending on exact price and delivery method at the time.

So, the ceramic coat was probably about 3 tanks of gas, which in that context seems cheap
