Fuel costs represent the money spent on fuel to power your vehicle over a specific period, usually monthly. These costs are influenced by factors such as the type of fuel your vehicle uses (e.g., petrol or diesel), your vehicle's fuel efficiency (measured in liters or gallons per kilometer or mile), and the current local price of fuel.
An insurance premium is the amount of money you pay to an insurance company, typically on a regular basis (monthly, quarterly, or annually), in exchange for insurance coverage. It serves as a financial safeguard against various risks, such as accidents, damage to property, or other unexpected events.
Maintenance and Repairs
Maintenance and repairs refer to the ongoing upkeep and restoration of a vehicle to keep it in good working condition. Maintenance includes routine tasks like oil changes, tire rotations, and inspections, aimed at preventing issues and extending the vehicle's lifespan.
Tire replacement is the process of removing worn-out or damaged tires from a vehicle and installing new ones. Tires play a crucial role in vehicle safety and performance, providing traction and stability on the road. Over time, tires wear down due to normal use and environmental factors.
Depreciation is the gradual decrease in the value of an asset, such as a vehicle, over time. In the context of vehicles, it refers to the decline in their resale or market value as they age and accumulate mileage. Depreciation is a natural part of vehicle ownership, and factors like age, usage, and market conditions influence how quickly it occurs.
License and Registration
License and registration refer to the legal documentation required for a vehicle to be legally driven on public roads.
