Per year, fuel is my biggest expenditure. The Alfa will be costing about 2k a year in fuel at the current rate, and it isn't my daily! Insurance came in at 1600, repairs so far 500. 90p a mile at the moment, which puts into perspective just how expensive motoring is.

Fuel Tax.

Though I don't know if the TVR is depreciating much, the Passat has depreciated by about 70% I suspect, I must confess it isn't really something I track nor worry about until the time comes to sell...

Insurance by some margin (thats 2 cars and 1 bike though).

All vehicles don't have much depreciation left to do hopefully. Best way to play it IMO. The hoon mobiles aren't very thirsty either.

Fuel I use for work is paid for. Thank fk I don't pay for that!
