How many miles your car can travel with fuel light on & the 5 most energy efficient vehicles
If you’re guilty of leaving it to the last minute to put petrol in your car , here’s how far you will be able to make it without breaking down
If you’re someone who leaves filling up the petrol in the car to the last minute, you might question how far you can make it after the fuel light comes on. And if the dreaded light takes you by surprise and you’re miles from a petrol station, panic might set in.
As the cost of living crisis continues, prices are rising everywhere from food to bills and fuel, making it more difficult to afford everything from car finance payments to central heating. The rising costs mean that you have to be careful with how much you are spending at the pumps and how far you can drive before you need to refuel.
New research from Moneybarn has revealed which cars will get you the furthest after the light has come on and which brand is the most energy efficient. The research also shows which cars can take you the furthest with just £10 of fuel.
