EV car and van data tool.

The Fleet News fuel cost calculator uses fuel price and vehicle data to calculate the cost of your journey. If you drive your vehicle for just 10 miles a week or 1,000 miles a month, using this tool will help budget for your fuel costs in the months ahead as well as show you potential savings on fuel costs.

Using the average fuel prices across the UK, we have pre-filled the pence per litre for you, but feel free to change this should you wish to use a more accurate petrol or diesel cost for your area.

You can either enter your mpg or look up your vehicle mpg from our running costs data set.

After entering the mileage for the routes you drive, simple click the view results page to view your fuel costs.
