Fuel – it depends upon the fuel economy of your car and also if your car is gasoline or diesel. An average car consumes one liter of oil per around eight kilometers.

Parking – the cost of parking depends on the location. If you’re working in the business districts of Metro Manila, parking fee will cost you an average of PHP 150 for eight hours.

Toll Fee – people living in the outskirts of the Metro and needs to go in for work or business needs to pay a toll fee depending on their location and destination.

There are also expenses that come once in a year like your car insurance and LTO registrations.
