    Working out Pence cost per Mile. 27th Apr 07 at 3:29 PM
    Hi Guys
    I am looking for a really simple (I am blonde) way to work out how much a mile is actually costing me!

    My car is a 2.0 TDI and I always fill up at Sainsbury's / Tescos etc so that I pay as little as possible.
    I claim my mileage back but only get 9p a mile. I have a company car but no fuel card.

    Anyway, for the last two 'fillups' I have recorded my opening and closing mileage.
    To work it out I deducted the opening mileage from the closing mileage and divided the number of miles by the amount that I had used to fill that tank up.

    EG: Opening Miles: 66321 Closing Miles: 66804 = 483 miles in total.
    483 divided by 33.66 = 14.34 (14p)

    I know that this is not scientific, but would it 'add' up?

    I want to email my company and ask that my mileage reimbursement be looked at as I feel I am paying 'in' to do my job.
