Car blog – March 2019 update

This blog is mostly dedicated for myself and I use it to keep track of my car’s odometer and other important information about the car. For example, it’s great to have a history of repairs, bought equipment, average fuel consumption and just for the fun of it,  history of gas prices throughout the years.

Car: Toyota Avensis
Year of production: 2014
Engine power: 108kW (144HP)
Front-wheel drive
Fuel type: Gasoline
Body: Sedan
Transmission: Automatic

In March I drove a total of 2140 km. Odometer went from 95070 to 97210.

In March, I managed to drive 69.032 km per day. One of the main reasons I drove that much was that I had to drive to Riga, Latvia, and back.
And no, not for the cheap liquor nor anything like that. Had to help out friends and I drove about 800 km to do so. That’s what friends are for, right?

The graphic below shows the average refilling prices. As you can see the price has been steadily rising.

Estonia is notorious for high fuel prices and the prices are changing constantly. Sometimes even every hour. It’s made people quite furious and many of us, atleast the people who live near Latvian border, go to Latvia daily, because the prices are significantly lower + the cheaper liquor, building materials etc etc. It all adds up a pretty big chunk of money.

To get cheaper fuel, I use regular bonus programs. For example, you can tie your regular shopping customer card with certain gas companies. And I got a lot of them, for my luck.
I can not remember the last time I didn’t get any discounts on tanking fuel.
Paying full price on something already so overpriced seems absurd.

Average discount is about 0.025 euros per litre, depends on the campaign. It’s something …

How much money did you spend on fuel in March? Do you have any suggestions for me on how to spend less money on fuel?

Finance Freedom

Hi! My name is Lukas, I am in my mid 20’s and I am an engineer from Estonia. I started investing at 2014, so I have been investing for over 6 years. In addition, I was 20 years old, when I started my first company and just 21 years of age, when I made my first investments. I was hooked instantly! In this blog I will be documenting my journey towards financial freedom.
