2005 Nissan Note, 1.4 litre, petrol, approximately £55, and I'd guess around 250 miles. I fill up once a fortnight.

It's registered on my name, but my dad's also on the insurance policy. However, he barely uses it (has another car).
I can only dream of having that sort of money

That is a NICE car. I don't even want to think of the insurance.

ford focus ghia, 2001

About 400 miles
I tend to fill up in halfs unless I'm doing a long trip so half a tank would last me about 10 days

Just been looking through the receipts in my wallet to find that I've spend about £350 on fuel this month between three cars, seems an awful lots to me I don't even drive that much. So I thought I would see what the people on TSR spend on fuel...

If you're not sure how many miles your car does to a tank I find that the best way of measuring is to let it run right down low until you look as if you're about to run out (or trip computer says a few miles, if you have one), then fill it to the brim (until the pump stops)... then reset your trip computer and wait until you've used all the petrol and see what mileage your trip computer is on.
