How much does it cost to fill up a typical family car?
June 13, 2022 - Soaring prices at petrol pumps across Europe are squeezing millions already enduring a cost of living crisis.
The cost of a litre of Euro-super 95 petrol has hit €2.55 in Denmark, as the continuing war in Ukraine drives prices ever higher.
The cost of filling a typical family car – with a fuel tank capacity of 55 litres – has risen to €140.25 in Denmark. Finland and the Netherlands come second and third on €137.50 and €130.35, respectively.
The cheapest place to buy petrol in the EU at the moment is Hungary, where a full tank costs half as much as in Denmark – €69.30. Malta and Slovenia are the next cheapest on €73.70 and €85.80, respectively. Notably, Hungary does not support sanctions on Russia covering oil and gas imports.
The UK, which left the EU in January 2020, is near the top on €118.80 for a full tank – which equates to £101.75.
