How to use our running costs tool
If you cannot find data for a car, please check these points and then you should
find the tool will work:
- Check you are only looking for a car built since 2006 and filling in each field (box)
- Check that your chosen engine size matches the engine size given in our
official stats data
- E.g. Car engine sizes are often 'sold' or 'badged' as 1.2 when they
are actually on 1140 CC, which is really 1.1. So you will need to slect
1100 in this example.
- Check the number of doors matches the data in our official stats section
There are links to the stats section next to the drop down boxes on the running
Our car data is based on cross-referencing the manufacturer press releases, brochures
and official figures. The depreciation is based on our live prices, so variations and spikes will be the same as in the price data. If there are too few of a particular model of car on the market at present the system may say there is 'too little data' to give you running costs.
