About the Fuel Cost Journey Calculator (UK)

Fuel costs are an important consideration before setting off somewhere, and it can be difficult to work out - particularly in the UK, where fuel is priced in litres, but most drivers know their fuel consumption in gallons per mile.

The tool allows you to get a rough estimate of how much your journey is likely to cost. You can use this for budgeting, splitting the bill, or considering whether public transport will be cheaper.

Remember: this is just an estimate. The actual cost will vary due to a number of factors. These can include the additional weight (which includes passengers and luggage), your average speed throughout your journey, whether your driving at the same speed throughout or doing a lot of starting and stopping, traffic as well as the terrain (lots of going up and down hills will cost more than level roads). As a general rule, driving on empty motorways will end up using much less fuel than going through busy city/town roads.

Note: This tool is mainly applicable in the UK, but can be used anywhere that uses miles for distance, miles/gallon for efficiency comparisons and petrol/diesel is sold in pence/litre.
