The UK government decision to postpone a 3p per litre rise in fuel duty is good news for cash-strapped motorists. That will save £1.50 when filling a typical 50 litre car petrol tank, welcome relief when you’re already handing over £60 or more. Petrol and diesel prices have risen so fast they’re now at their highest since 1920, even when inflation is taken into account.
But instead of just saving £1.50 every time you fill up you could be filling your petrol tank for under £20, enough for your week’s commuting!
Modern motorbike and scooter engines can get over 100 mpg – the most economical motorcycles get over 150mpg.
