Looking to reduce the extra car expenses you have? Look no further!
We’ve put together the ultimate list of fuel price and mileage tracker apps that save up on your time and on your wallet. Take a look:
1. Petrol Prices
PetrolPrices is an app created to help you save money and time at 98% of petrol stations across the UK. It allows you to compare petrol, diesel and premium fuel prices at major UK petrol stations, and review others comments of members. You can also contribute by reporting on fuel prices and commenting about local stations.
The best part: you earn points for every price you update or confirmation you submit that give you special rewards.

2. Fuel Calculator
Terrible at doing maths in your head? Don’t stress, that’s what the fuel calculator was designed to help with. When you open the app you will find what looks exactly like a calculator. Simply select what you want to calculate and what you already know and the app will do all the heavy lifting from there. You will be able to easily find the fuel consumption of your car, fuel cost and volume necessary for a trip and even the distance you can drive after refueling.

Of all the petrol price comparison apps, WhatGas is perhaps the simplest one. It relies on user feedback to let you find the nearest petrol station and the best UK petrol prices.
This app has a map feature, so you can browse about an area, it’s totally free and doesn't require a subscription. Help yourself and other drivers save money by submitting or updating fuel prices and enjoy the ride!

The Roadtrippers app is a necessity for anyone planning a long car trip with friends. Think of it like GoogleMaps designed specifically for road trips, including itinerary suggestions, local guides with stops you can’t miss and plenty of key information (like the nearest fuel station or most scenic points). Not only can your friends collaborate on the planning, but the trips you've saved or places you love will also sync automatically across devices.

5. The AA
The AA breakdown and membership app is a staple for any driver. Simple and easy, with a click you can report a breakdown and track assistance, it sends you reminders whenever an important date like service or MOT is coming up, and the route planner hits all of the important marks: giving you live updates on traffic, parking and fuel prices nearby.
Another perk (as if it wasn’t great already) is that members get up to 20% off at over 1,000 UK pubs and restaurants, just in case they are feeling peckish on the journey.

Working with Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s, the fuelGenie fuel card programme lets you simultaneously collect points on your Tesco Clubcard, Morrisons More Card and Nectar card at Sainsbury’s when you fuel up with fuelGenie.

We recommend MPG to anyone who likes a fully detailed spreadsheet on their mileage and fuel consumption. It’s a fuss-free app that focuses more on the data and less on the aesthetics.
