Infographic: The Cost Of Driving
How much do you think it costs to own and drive a car?
The answer is a whole lot more than you think - I made a spreadsheet to do the calculations & present them thus (click to enlarge):
That total of over £4,000 a year is for me, driving an old Honda for just 11,000 miles a year, and squeezing 54mpg out of it! I need to earn more than £5,000 a year before taxes to pay for that - i.e. around one hour out of every working day goes on the car.
You can work out your own costs . . . as I’ve made the spreadsheet that does all the calculations publicly available.
