How do you estimate fuel costs?

The gas price is automatically set to the US monthly average. We check the average price weekly and use that along with your MPG and fuel type settings to provide an estimate for your trip.

Note that you cannot edit the gas price used to calculate the estimate, but you can edit the MPG setting for your trip by following the steps here: Can I edit the MPG for my vehicle?

Check the tabs below to see where and how the estimate will display in your trip!

If you're using our website, you'll see a trip cost estimate next to the piggy bank icon in the trip bar. Keep in mind that this estimate is a total of our fuel cost estimate and any budgets you've added to waypoints in your trip.
