Fuel as a percentage of hgv operating costs
FTA's 'fuel fractions' table shows fuel costs as a proportion of total annual vehicle and driver cost for a range of hgvs.
Using information from this table and fuel price movement over the last 12 months, it is possible to calculate the annual change in vehicle operating costs occurring purely as a result of the movement in fuel prices.
|Low mileage (miles p.a.)||Fuel costs as a percentage of total cost of vehicle and driver||Average mileage (miles p.a.)||Fuel costs as a percentage of total cost of vehicle and driver||High mileage (miles p.a.)||Fuel costs as a percentage of total cost of vehicle and driver|
