Can someone explain how the calculation in the Driving Down Costs example is worked out?
It has 15000 miles at 35 mpg costing 100.9p/l average fuel cost as £2160.
But I get:
15000/35 = 428 gallons
428*4.54 = 1943 l
1945* 1.009 = total fuel cost of £1960 ????
Then using cheap petrol (96.5p) the saving on the above is £83 not £270 as shown in the table.
