Whether E5 or E10, whether Super or Super Plus – the price displays at the gas stations are currently moving in one direction: upwards. Gasoline often costs around two euros again. Diesel even more. The main reason for this is the expiring tank discount. It ends on the last day of August. From September, motorists will again be able to tap without government support. And that means skyrocketing fuel prices.
Seat Ibiza FR CNG subscription at Like2Drive from 359 euros per month
A kilo of CNG is currently quoted between 95 cents and 1.10 euros per kilo at the filling station (as of August 29, 2022). This is significantly cheaper than petrol or diesel. Plus: the energy content of one kilogram of CNG corresponds roughly to that of 1.5 liters of petrol and 1.3 liters of diesel. Or to put it another way: not only is it cheaper to fill up with natural gas, you also get further than petrol. In short, less coal for more range.
The subscription Ibiza with FR equipment is a well-equipped small car with a 90 hp engine. His tank almost 14 kilos of CNG. Filling up once means about 14 euros. This means that the Seat handlebars can travel 370 to 400 kilometers with a cautious driving style. The pure fuel price per 100 kilometers is around four euros. With a comparable petrol engine, on the other hand, the 100-kilometer fuel costs are more than ten euros.
Natural gas burns cleaner than petrol and diesel
Unfortunately, you only have to look for the CNG filling stations. Your network is unfortunately relatively thin. Currently only around 900 to 1000 gas stations nationwide have one or more natural gas pumps. Before taking out a subscription for the natural gas Seat, it is therefore important to check whether there is a corresponding station nearby. The same applies to trips abroad. Availability is particularly good in Holland and Italy. In Eastern Europe, France and Spain, on the other hand, insufficient.
