how much does it cost to run a 30 year old refrigerator?

Buy a plug in energy meter. That will tell you exactly how much it costs you per day / week/ and month.
It looks like a standard time switch. Then you can unplug it and find other devices in your home that are power hungry.
Just unplug your fridge and plug in the meter, then plug your fridge into it, and leave it running for a month.

a 30 year old fridge will likely last another 10 or 15 years. A new fridge will likely last 10 years.

I don’t know but whatever you do DON’T move it. Old fridges always seem to pack up when you do.

far less than the interest cost of buying a new one

More than it costs to run a new, energy efficient one--but if the fridge is working okay, I'd think twice about replacing it for use cost. The difference will not be significant enough for a while to offset the expense of replacing the entire thing. And there aren't too many people who would want a very old, used fridge.
If you want newer features, then that's another issue.

I don't know, it depends upon the company, functioning ability.

In a six or twelve k race? Kidding. But really no way to tell. Less than $40 bucks if the seals are good.

Many variables, but around here probably $5 a month.

That would depend on the size and make and model of the fridge, it's current operating efficiency, and what electricity costs where it is.
