Fuel Barometer


With much discussion in the news about 2040 marking the end of new petrol and diesel cars, Confused.com wanted to look at current fuel trends.

We worked with them to produce the Fuel Barometer. On initial load users are asked about the fuel of their current vehicle in a poll, which can be compared to historic data as the graphic evolves.

Following this the graphic looks at the Google search trends, vehicle registrations, and surveyed people’s purchase intentions for diesel, petrol, hybrid, and electric vehicles. The graphic shows this data on comparable line graphs, also highlighting key bits of news or announcements.

The graphic is kept regularly updated with new data and announcements as they’re made.


For a moment, nothing happened.
Then, after a second or so,
nothing continued to happen.
