Just admit that you know SFA about anything but just post one liners that you make appear as fact whenall they really are is unsubstatiate opinion.

Your knowledge about anything to do with cars could fit on the back of a stamp.
Your last bloomer was your question to me when I said hoe much I would save driving 1,800 km with summer wheels tyres against winter wheels tyres

Do you have a link where I can calculate?

Sure, the people who know most about cars own a Citroën.

I am not the one that is not informed. So tell me what shall I ask when I go into the Mercedes dealers?Even with the facts in front of you it seems not to register. Why don't you check Wiki where you quote all your facts. It is obvious you know sweet fa about cars as well as most other subjects you comment on here.

Yes folks he pays ...

My nice automatic is therefore costing me an extra huge amount of...

Just dredging up this old post, I'm researching a car to buy. Is there somewhere you can calculate how much road tax it is?

I would like to ask an update on this topic. I live in Greece and I'm planning to study in Gothenburg this summer and for 2 yeras on. I'm considering the fact of bringing my car along to Sweden. It is a 2010 Ford Fiesta 1.4 gasoline/lpg with 70000km on it. Does anyone know approximately how much am I going to pay on road taxes and insurance? I already emailed transportstyrelsen about that and they suggested to look up at transportstyrelsen.se but i need a swedish licence plate number in order to find out how much I'll be asked to pay.

Thanks!!

You can try to look up similar car on, e.g., http://autouncle.se or http://bilweb.se. It's one of the websites for used/new cars. Then you look up the details of the similar used car and usually you would find its reg. number. So just use that number to check how much one would pay for that kind of car.
It still could differ from what you might end up paying for your car, but would give you at least an estimate.
Usually for the petrol/gas cars the road tax is very low, somewhere around 300-600 SEK/year.
But in Sweden the cars running on LNG are very rare. You would find more on CNG, but even those are very few.

This post is quite old. But I thought I give it some now content. Much has changed since the last time someone wrote, the gas price in Sweden is now 17.45 kr. That's like 1.96 dollars, 1.69 Euro and 1.49 pund. For references the price in Russia is 5.80 kr. In dollars that's 0.65. You get the point. Its very expensive to own a car in Sweden. The average insurance cost is 4800 kr I think according to insplanet. The cost for bilprovningen is still the same. Tax I guess is the same. And there is a lot of new ways to own a car. You can share your car with different apps. Lease, and or buy one. New or old. To buy a used one is the best alternative due to the fact that cars lose their value fast.

Their is a lot of other cost. As if your drive your car without insurance there is a fee for each day. like 112 kr/day and you have count in cost of service.
