Analyse your motoring spend

If you've ever wondered how much your spending on motor fuel ranks against others with similar driving patterns, then you could use the National Consumer Agency's 'Economiser' tool, because a motoring category has been added.

The online tool allows you to see if you spend above average on groceries, energy, mobile phones, TV and telecoms.

In the new motoring section tips relate to getting the best value on fuel, servicing and other car-running costs. It also includes guidelines on avoiding common pitfalls such as driving with unnecessary loads or not regularly checking your tyre pressure.

To try it out go to: www.economiser.ie.
