As a driver, it is essential to track your mileage. This gives you more visibility into your petrol consumption so you can plan more efficient ways to use your vehicle. The rate at which your car consumes petrol against its mileage will indicate whether your car is as fuel-efficient as it used to be, or if maintenance is required.
Keeping track of your mileage is also crucial for car insurance tracking, particularly if you are using a mileage-based car insurance plan. Since the premium for pay-per-kilometre car insurance is based on how much you drive, tracking your mileage allows you to know when it’s time to purchase a top-up or when to drive less, so you don’t exceed your limit.
To get the most bang for your buck, here are some tips to more accurately keep track of mileage:
Your car’s mileage is an important metric to track. It can tell you a lot about your driving habits and influence better decision-making. Moreover, it helps you save on unnecessary expenditure on your vehicle.
If you’re a low-mileage driver, you would benefit from lower petrol consumption, lower vehicle maintenance, and a mileage-based car insurance plan. Chubb’s new MY Smart Car Insurance plan offers you more cash savings to insure your car at a capped mileage compared to traditional auto insurance plans. For example, if you’re driving a 2019 Perodua Alza, basic comprehensive insurance would cost around RM1,345 per year. A 5,000-kilometre flexible plan for the same vehicle would only cost RM1081.92 annually. Once you are more familiar with your monthly mileage, you can choose the plan that is right for you.
