New widget helps you to quickly add up annual mileage and fuel costs
Commuters can find out how many miles they travel getting to and from work every year, and how much they spend on fuel, thanks to a ‘Commuter Calculator’ which has been created by Admiral Car Finance.
The tool also tells users how much time is spent in traffic, what the cost of fuel would be if they owned a newer car and how many songs they listen to on their way to work each year – see some of my results below.
The aim of the Commuter Calculator is to give drivers information and statistics about their annual commute, including the total time spent and how much of that is sat in traffic jams, to help them make an informed decision if they are thinking of purchasing a new car, or are just considering ways of improving their daily journey.
Motorists simply fill in their home postcode, work postcode, how many days a week they work, as well as the year and fuel type of their car. The online tool then figures out how many miles they will travel to and from work every year.
The tool will also work out how much fuel is used and how much commuters spend on average per year on fuel. It will also work out how much commuters could expect to spend on fuel if they owned a newer car based on average fuel consumption.
Drivers can discover just how many hours they have spent in the car and how many songs in total they will have listened to, as well as how long they will spend every year in traffic.
