https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money...vel-twice-far-5-charge-petrol-car-5-fuel.html Basically it's a test of cars (petrol and electric) compared to buses, trains etc. It says that trains will get you 20 miles compared to an electric car which gets you over 100 miles. Totally unrealistic claptrap!! A car costs the purchase, insurance, servicing, MOT and tax before you even touch the tank, whereas a train has many off-peak value fares, such as Manchester to London for around £25 standard, so a fiver gets you a good 40 miles, so make that 60-odd on a railcard!! Easybus/national Express can do Manchester-London for under £20. And no overheads!! And with some airlines £19.99 (without bags etc) can get you over 1000 miles!! Not surprisingly the "research" was done by website carwow - which I have always found to be an excellent site. Discuss!
