Try our car running cost calculator to find out what you’re spending to run your car each day and what that equates to every month and over the course of a year.
We're also sharing some tips to help you reduce your car running costs and save money.
Answer each question as accurately as you can. Enter the amount and how often you pay – then leave it to us to calculate the total amount you spend.
Also known as road tax or car tax.
If you have fewer than 12 months of payments left to make, enter the total amount outstanding and select "remaining".
If you use your car more for shorter trips, consider a plug-in hybrid or 100% electric car. If you don’t fancy electric, switch to a car with a low total cost of ownership, such as one of the cheapest new cars to own over three years.
Accelerate smoothly, avoid braking sharply where possible and stick to the speed limits.
Shop around where possible – for breakdown cover, new tyres, and even parking and petrol.
Check your lights are working, your tyre treads aren’t too low, and your windscreen wipers are in good condition – before going for the test.
Get your car serviced yearly and maintain it in between to make sure issues are caught early.
Do some DIY maintenance!
Do your best to avoid parking tickets and fines.
If you lose a car key, don’t buy a replacement from a dealer – try a key cutter or mobile auto locksmith instead.
