How much can I save on petrol?

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics figures (Survey of Motor Vehicle Use, Australia ending 30 June 2020), the average fuel consumption per passenger vehicle was 11.1 litres per 100km.

Covering a distance of 20,000km a year at this consumption rate would require approximately 1,802 litres of fuel. At a cost of 155 cents per litre, a motorist could end up paying $2,793.10 per year in fuel costs. Members who make the most of their 5 cents per litre savings could save approximately $90 per year.

Save more with electric vehicles

Motorists driving the same distance in an electric vehicle (EV) would require just 33 cents per litre when charged via the electricity grid, with an annual cost of approximately $595. Compared to a standard passenger car, an electric vehicle would save you $2,198 a year in fuel costs.

What is the Sydney petrol price cycle?

A petrol price cycle is where the retail prices move from a low point (trough) up to a high point (peak) and back down to a subsequent low point. During these cycles, motorists can see petrol prices decrease before suddenly rising sharply. Like other Australian capital cities, Sydney’s pricing cycle has been increasing over the last few years. In 2020 the cycle ranged from a low of 19 days to a high of 53 days.

Stay up to date with the current Sydney price cycle by following the NRMA Weekly Fuel Reports.
