Our last diesel fill-up on our 2014 Nissan Qashqai Tekna took place today. It is the end of an era. No more standing at the pump. In future we will be sitting inside the car chilling out, watching Netflix or YouTube video and taking a break. ūüėÄ

Key Fill-up Statistics on our 2014 Nissan Qashqai Tekna

Over the last six and a half years, we have used a Google app called Simply Auto to capture all the fill-ups and expenses on our Nissan Qashqai Tekna. It is a brilliant app if you are into statistics and keeping tabs on mileage, costs and expenses on your vehicle.

Jo and I would capture fill-up costs and then sync the data to the app, then we have a very good idea how much the car cost us over the years.

Because the Nissan Qashqai had a CO2 level below 100 grams, there was no road tax on our car each year.

We saved big on road tax, especially when we know the annual flat rate of road tax is ¬£150 per year.

We reckon we saved at least £840 in six and half years.

Total Fill-Up Statistics

Below are some of the key statistics pulled from the Simply-Auto app.

Average Fuel Efficiency

Distance between fill-ups

Average fill-up price per litre

Fuel cost per month per fill-up

Expense cost per day per fill-up

It true what they say about older cars – they start costing you money little by little. You can see this below. In the last two years, the car was out of warranty and started to become a little expensive, what with new rims and tyres, a couple of new batteries and some weird engine cut out that took a huge chunk out of the cost-efficiency. It was a good time to trade her in.

Next week we will be trading in our Nissan Qashqai Tekna for an electrical vehicle namely the Tesla Model 3.
