The fuel cost calculator takes into account the parking and toll fees as well as the number of passengers. The CO2 emissions calculator calculates the specific CO2 emissions of your vehicle for a covered distance.

This is how our consumption calculator calculates your fuel consumption

If you are interested in the calculation basis of the consumption calculator, we will provide you with our calculation formula here: The liters specified for the second refueling at the pump are multiplied by the number 100 and then divided by the number of kilometers traveled. The result is the fuel consumption per 100 kilometers. Here's an example:

17 liters of petrol (filled up with the second full tank) x 100: 290 (number of kilometers traveled between the first and second full tank) = 5.86 liters per 100 kilometers.

Have fun with our consumption calculator, always drive carefully and arrive at your destination healthy and relaxed!
