    Should that not be £145 :?

    Think mines about £10 a week only use it for nipping around in and driving into London some weekends

    i spend just short of £40 a week on fuel
    do 300 miles a week.
    Still a good whack of my wages though :x

    £30 a week in a Rover 416, 30 mile round trip every day! Glad I don't still have my old Corrado VR6... 19mpg average from a 2.9L engine was NOT nice on the wallet

    I spend about £20 a fortnight. My 1.2 Corsa is very economical! :-D My other half spends about £20 a week in his Astra 1.8.:p

    only about £5 a week on my 125 motorbike,unemployed right now so hardly use it.

    average of 2000 miles per month over the last 15.

    £30 week, 2l c-max tdi

    Sod All Dont Drive Anymore

    a tank a week.. so at the moment about £40 and that goes for a bit over 300 - 330 miles depending on how i drive

    £40-50 a week... I've got a 1.2.

    About £60 a week - other half works about 40 miles away

    Got a 1.6 Fiesta (Anniversary Edition)

    Mine is about 40 a week - and do about 400 miles.
    The missus out about 25 a week in hers as well.

    Its really annoying coz mine is a diesel, I remember when the difference between petrol and diesel was just a couple of p. It is 12p dearer now!

    I know it supposedly costs more to produce but 13% more, surely they're just ripping us off:x

    about £20-£25 a week - 1.1 petrol. 200+ miles

    Ive got a toyota avensis 1.8 auto and i do about 600-800 miles a week and it costs me £90 a week roughly...sometimes as high as £110. Not good!!!

    About £20 - £30 per week in my little 1.3 Corsa, do about 200 miles a week in it,

    Fiance has a Mazda 3 and he is about £10 per day for the same journey (We work in the same town).... don't drive it as much anymore, use my wee corsa now.

    Until recently I was spending £70 a week on my Jaguar XK8 4.2 litre petrol

    Impossible , you would struggle on 3 quid for 30 miles on motorway let … Impossible , you would struggle on 3 quid for 30 miles on motorway let alone around town


    You calling me a liar? :x

    My car does around 480 miles to a tank (12 gallons). Measured over years this is correct (about 40mpg).

    so I use 0.75 of a gallon per week. My pump price is 94.9p.

    1 gallon = 4.55 x 94.9p = £4.31

    £4.31 x 0.75 = £3.23

    OK, so I was a little under lol
