How we calculate fuel costs
Fuel cost is calculated by multiplying a vehicle's real-world fuel economy by fuel price and the distance driven. For petrol, diesel and all-electric vehicles, real-world fuel use is estimated using official test data together with correction factors generated by vehicles driven on real roads.
The calculation for plug-in hybrids is more complex, as they can be simultaneously powered by electricity and petrol or diesel. For the real-world estimate of fuel costs for PHEVs, the default calculation assumes that the vehicle is driven for half the distance in EV-mode and half using a conventional fuel.
