Owning a car is not a cheap lifestyle, with insurance, emergency funds and the cost of fuel. 

Whether you own a petrol-run car or diesel, the cost of filling up can be a big dent in your weekly budget. 

Recent times have seen the cost of fuel rapidly increase, with some areas facing costs of nearly £100 for a tank's worth.

But now there's a handy app that could save you some extra money on petrol.

All you have to do is search by postcode, town or city and filter for any individual brands, furl types and sort so the cheapest ones appear first. 

Self-described as the "‘TripAdvisor’ for petrol stations", you can also review stations and even get rewards for helping others.

The app does share that sometimes their price data can be out of date, which is why they ask for users to give a helping hand to make sure that all prices in the local area are correct.

Plus so you don't forget, you can even set in reminders for when your next MOT is needed or when your car needs re-insuring.
