Top 5 Most Useful Online Tools

Mon, 22 Nov 2021 17:04:00

When it comes to your car, there are now more than ever, more apps and websites readily available for you to do almost everything you want to do.

With apps such as petrol prices, you can download to your Android or iOS device and check the cheapest petrol prices near you.

And with other websites such as SORN, you can declare your car to be off-road before you decide to sell it or scrap it.

In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most useful and helpful online tools you can get to do with your car.

Petrol Prices

First on our list is petrol prices, which is an app available for both Android and iOS smartphones. Once downloaded, just enter your postcode and you’ll see the cheapest places to get your petrol from!

Know Your Car

Know Your Car is a fantastic app available for Android and iOS smartphones to help you never forget when your MOT is due, when your car insurance is up for renewal and when it’s time to pay your tax for the year.

You’ll never have to worry about it again as you’ll get notifications telling you what’s up for renewal.

Petrol Check

With the UK switching from E5 to E10 fuel this year, it’s always best to check which petrol is compatible with your car and this handy tool allows you to search for your car and tells you if your car accepts E10.

We recently wrote a blog about why the switch from E5 to E10 is a good move as it benefits the environment and helps reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 750,000 tonnes a year.


If you are deciding not to drive your car for a long period of time, perhaps you’re moving away, going on holiday or you can’t decide between selling or scrapping, then in the meantime, declaring your car off-road and SORN means you won’t have to pay car tax or car insurance on the car.

Just as long as you don’t drive it on the road, this would be illegal and would result in breaking the law.

This SORN tool from the Government website makes it easy to declare your car SORN online in a matter of minutes.
