New Commission online tool to measure fuel costs and CO2 emissions of your car journey

The Joint Research Center has developed an online tool to help citizens estimate fuel costs and CO2 emissions of their daily commute or holiday trips by car. The “Green Driving Tool” estimates the fuel costs and CO2 emissions based on variables such as car segment, engine power, fuel type and driving cycle. This tool uses detailed map data and vehicle simulations; thus it is expected to raise awareness of the impact of car journeys and support citizens to make decisions on their use of cars.
