Peder Karlsson: SEK 50 per mile in petrol cost – it’s shit the same – Chronicles

Gasoline prices are high on the list of things that are easy to be annoyed about. Rebellions are started online that quickly gain huge numbers of followers, it is all shameless and miserable.

This is a chronicle. This means that the content is the writer’s own opinion.

I basically agree. It’s crazy expensive to refuel.

Lately, I have also had the good taste to buy cars that are not directly fuel-efficient. I currently have three pieces that all pull over 20.0 l / 100 km. A Lamborghini Urus, a Ferrari FF and a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. No piggy banks or environmentalists any of them, I’m a little ashamed to say. But just a little. I choose to look at how much car traffic accounts for by and large and realize that there are bigger fish to fry before we motorists get on their heads to destroy the planet.

But if you drive more actively with any of them, it costs the equivalent of about 50 kroner a mile in soup. It’s expensive, no talking about it. Insanely expensive.

But I still want to put it in relation to other costs of taking the edge off the debate. I’m also going to give you solid, actual tips on how to forget the high price of gasoline and get more money left in your pocket than before. That you!

“Do you know what your car costs in taxes? Was that a factor when you bought it?”

Namely, there are other costs which not many people seem to think about and which you put on without hesitation.

So we say for the sake of the game that an average car in Sweden pulls 10.0 l / 100 km. I think that number is high, but we are giving the petrol insurgents an honest chance.

At 1,000 km a year, we then have about 17,000 kronor if we also there pull the price tag in favor of the uprising.

SEK 17,000 a year in fuel then. The difference from 15 years ago when the soup was around SEK 10 / liter, which most people think is okay, is thus SEK 7,000 per year.

So we say it’s 7,000 kronor a year I need to save for you to make you happy, okay?

There are several things to keep in mind here that save far more than SEK 7,000 per year, and it’s all about which car you choose.

The tax is one of them, only on the tax can you today save your entire petrol bill. My Urus costs
SEK 30,000 per year in tax, there are cars that cost SEK 1,500 a year. Do you know what your car costs in taxes? Was that a factor when you bought it?

Tires are another thing you do not seem to think about. Tires for large SUVs are far much more expensive than for a “regular” passenger car. While a new winter tire for a Volvo V70 can cost less than a thousand kroner, a SUV tire can easily cost three times as much. There we have one more thing to save the entire petrol money on. Did you think about that when you bought your latest car?

Service costs. Before you buy a car, do you check what it costs to service? Many new, completely ordinary cars are very expensive to service, and service costs can vary from a few thousand kronor up to over SEK 20,000 for a service that must be done.

There are more examples but the most important thing that seems to pass people by is the depreciation of the car you are driving. The decrease in value of an ordinary Svensson car can without a doubt be tens of thousands of kronor a year, sometimes more. In my car replacement frenzy, I have lost millions over the years. Most of what I lost on a car was SEK 500,000 in three years. That is just under SEK 200,000 per year. Do you understand then that I actually shit in what the soup costs?

That figure is of course extreme, but look at Blocket and educate yourself, there is a huge difference between different car models, and a loss of SEK 50,000 on a completely normal newer car is not unusual.

So do yourself a favor. Stop thinking so much about what the soup costs, if the car pulls 6.0 l / 100 km or 8.0 l / 100 km. It is negligible on the whole when you own a car.

Focus on what is important instead and which you yourself can influence, namely almost everything – EXCEPT gas prices.

Do you come you sleep better at night, and wake up in the morning with more cash in your pocket. You are welcome.

How about SEK 30,000 a year in vehicle tax? A little depreciation on it, then you do not have to worry about the price of gasoline anymore.
