Cheap allowed the purchase of that plane. Now to save elsewhere. That plane drinks at a rate if 11 gallons an hour. That is at about $5 a gallon.

Dear Zapy: As a former light twin, and complex single engine, owner, let me reassure you that the $55/hour you spend on avgas will be the LEAST unpleasant outlay you will come to experience. However, let me assure that the thrill and sense of accomplishment, far outweighs that. So congratulations, and welcome to the Money Pit!

Ahhh. Perhaps you didn't partner up with the "right" people?
Partner owns a hangar and happens to be an aircraft mechanic. The flight instructor is giving free lessons for IFR etc. in exchange for use of the plane. Plane is also availalbe to the flight school for rental / lessons.
But you are right ------ just minutes after the purchase i put it into the shop to have all the avionics replaced and updated a $35K cost but worth every single cent!
Now the insurance and fuel are really the only major things to worry about, I think.
