Petrol/Running Costs Per Mile for Megane Scenic (53 Plate)

Does anyone know where I can find the average cost per mile for a Petrol 53 Scenic. (obviously this will depends on what sort of travel / conditions etc but it will give me a rough idea)

I've estimated 18p for each country mile (like tootling about), and for motorway miles, I've put 14p per mile. Am I about right?

Trying to work out some costings for OH's break away and she reckons she'll do about 575/600 miles over 5 days

Day 1: Travel from Newcastle/Home - Hotel in Staffs (Approx 204miles)
Day 2: Tootling around Staffs (Approx 50miles)
Day 3: Tootling around Staffs (Approx 50miles)
Day 4: Tootling around Staffs (Approx 50miles)
Day 5: Travel from Hotel - Home ( (Approx 204miles)

Apart from wear and tear on the tires/car itself, is there anything I should consider?

TIA

Yes, if your that concerned about the cost of fuel, dont go
or buy a diesel car!
our 2001 Vectra diesel will do all the above journeys, if I start with a full tank of fuel, I'll have at least 60 miles left in the tank when I got home.

It does a minimum of 660 miles on a full tank of 60 litres, thats motorway driving also, I often doit driving to cornwall from Manchester and back again, never have to fill the car till after I get home.

thanks for the advice but when did I say I was concered about paying for fuel. As most of the people in the UK, we're just coming out of recession so need to look to save as much as possible.

The trip is a MUST, do regardless of cost, OH must go. I'm just trying to work out costings etc?

If money is that tight you would be better off not going. She may need a coffee on the way, or there may be a breakdown, a speeding ticket or anything...other than that just write off a generous figure of £150 for fuel and let her get on with the holiday. Personal circumstances appreciated, but I'd hate to come back and find someone with a calculator suggesting I could have saved money by switching off the AC and driving 5mph slower. Just round up a generous amount and write it off if she has to go.

another one that hasnt read the thread properly... Thanks for ya comments as well, but she has to go - I'm asking for an approx mileage cost for the trip above. Its not about saving money.. just trying to budget a few things so interested in how much people think petrol would cost

As a rough guide you should get between 500 - 600 miles from a tank full - to fill it will prob cost about £60 - £65 depending on the size of the tank - that's what I work on and I do @ 800 miles/week. (mine is a diesel so I get just over 600 miles/tank, but fuel tank should be about about the same size as mine's a Megane - tho not the Scenic.) I would realistically allow prob £80 for the whole trip for fuel with the details you've given. Hope that's some help ! (Cant really work on ppm cos just too complicated working it all out when you dont know exactly how many miles you'll do at each speed / type of road etc - that you can work out exactly once she's home !!)
