Cost of a full tank

The fuel prices to be sold at retail fueling stations are approved by the UAE’s Ministry of Energy and determined every month. The prices are based on the average global price of oil and its fluctuation – whether up or down- and include distribution companies' operating costs.

The drop in fuel prices – from November 2023 to January 2024, led to a saving of Dhs4.08 to Dhs5.18 on a full tank, depending on the type of car and its tank capacity.

The average fuel tank capacity for compact cars is 51 litres which cost Dhs138.21 for Super 95 in January 2024. Similarly, SUVs with an average fuel tank capacity of 74 litres filling up on Super 95 petrol cost Dhs200.54 in January 2024. It costs Dhs208.68 to fill up an SUV with Super 98 while Dhs143.82 to fill up a sedan with a 51 litre tank capacity.

For a diesel vehicle, with fuel pump rates at Dhs3 per litre, it costs Dhs330 to fill up an SUV such as a Toyota Land Cruiser with a 110 litre tank, in January.
