Adding to the confusion is electric cars. If you can’t tell the difference between a kilowatt and a kilobyte (the latter is a measurement of digital file sizes), a different way of comparing is needed.

So here’s a comparison in language everyone can understand. How far can you go on five pounds?

How far can you go on £5?

Carwow has compared exactly how far you can get on £5, in terms of petrol, diesel, electricity, and indeed public transport.

Some used EVs are appreciating in value

  Some used EVs are appreciating in value Cars like the Renault Zoe and BMW i3 are rising in value. Right now isn't a good time for used car prices – unless we're talking about electric cars, which are currently bucking the industry trend by appreciating in value. CarGurus analyses data on hundreds of thousands of used cars each day to calculate each one's instant market value. It examined the prices of the four most searched electric cars online since 2017 – the BMW i3, Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe, and Tesla Model S. Its data showed that the value of each car either remained steady or gained in value over several months.

Fuel costs regularly fluctuate due to the price of oil and other variables such as In fact, fuel prices have just risen to the highest level for four years. Average diesel cost per litre is £ 1.33p and petrol has risen to over £ 1.29p.

I was wondering how far you can go on just electric power. Today my battery was green (8bars). And i drove 2.9kilometers (1.8 miles) with 55km/h Didn't use the EV mode let the car decide when it was time to charge. The ICE came on at 4 bars. How far did you go on just electric power?

The car buying platform established the average costs of each by comparing fuel and public transport costs in 10 of the UK’s major cities. Figures for respective variants of the Volkswagen Golf were used. What did the researchers find?

Leading the way is electric. Charge your electric car to the value of £5, and you’ll go 102 miles on average. That’s good news for the 35 percent of Brits who say their biggest worry is getting stranded in an electric car.

Compare that to second-placed diesel, and you’re nearly DOUBLING your distance. Put in £5 of diesel and on average, you’ll go around 56.5 miles.

Things get worse from there for petrol, the train and the bus. On average, £5 takes you 49.6 miles in a petrol car, 20 miles on a train and just 12.6 miles via bus.

Fuel prices drop for fourth month in a row

  Fuel prices drop for fourth month in a row Fuel prices have been falling for four months. However, the RAC believes there's room for the prices to drop even further. The post Fuel prices drop for fourth month in a row appeared first on Motoring Research.

Petrol and diesel cars still make up the majority of UK car sales, despite gradually increasing electric car sales in the UK. To help you make the decision

The more petrol , the farther you go . It wouldn't go very far at all. Semi trucks use diesel , which is a fuel oil - not refined gasoline. On 300 gallons of diesel , you could be looking at 1300 - close to 3000 miles, all things dependent.

“Some people might be surprised to see that you can travel pretty much double the distance in an electric car than you can with diesel or petrol, but you can’t argue with the data,” said Mat Watson of Carwow.

“That said, ‘range anxiety’ is understandable, particularly as the main battery operated tech the average person will be familiar with is the mobile phone. The good news is there are already more charging stations than petrol stations in the UK, a fact almost half of the country (49 percent) are unaware of.

“Undoubtedly more needs to be done when it comes to educating people about electric cars, their benefits and their feasibility.”

Watson conceded the decision to buy an alternative fuel vehicle will be a personal one, based on where you live and how much local investment there has been to charging infrastructure. “The roll-out has not been even,” but progress is being made.

“We hope our findings will help, because it really does seem that in years to come, we could be together in electric dreams.”
