Where to find a car's running costs
CAR website CarsIreland.ie claims it is the only classified site on the Irish market where you can view each car's running costs.
The special feature means you can see running cost details on each used car listed on the site, including mpg and annual road tax.
The facility is in response to fuel prices and changes to the motor tax system now based on emissions for many cars.
