How to use the calculator

  1. Enter the postcode of your starting location
  2. Enter the postcode of your destination
  3. Choose the type of vehicle that you’ll be driving, from the drop down list. The vehicle you drive determines how much you may be charged for driving within the Clean Air Zone. Larger vehicles such as HGVs and buses are charged at a higher rater of £50 a day, smaller vans, minibuses,  taxis and private hire vehicles will be charged £12.50 a day from July 2023.
  4. Choose the type of fuel your vehicle uses from the dropdown list. 
  5. Choose the year in which your vehicle was manufactured. Petrol combustion vehicles manufactured before 2006 and diesel vehicles made after September 2016 generally don’t meet the minimum emissions standards for the CAZ and may be subject to the charge.
  6. Click submit
Once submitted, your total journey cost will be given as well as a breakdown of the costs (fuel and CAZ charge) in the fields below.

If it looks like your journey passes through Newcastle and Gateshead’s Clean Air Zone and your vehicle is subject to a fee, we will add the charge in full to your journey not including any discounts or exemptions that may be available. 

Newcastle and Gateshead has a class C zone, which means that it is more likely to impact drivers of vehicles that are used more for commercial use as opposed to private. The charges are as follows: 

  • HGVs, Lorries, Buses and Coaches are charged £50
  • LGVs/ vans, minibuses and taxis are charged £12.50. This will come into effect in July 2023.
  • Private cars and motorcycles are not subject to a fee
Please Note: This calculator should be used as a guide only – to verify and pay your charge, please visit the Tyneside Council website. 

Fuel Costs

The tool gives an estimate of how much your journey will cost for fuel, based on the following average fuel prices and efficiencies of electric, petrol and diesel vehicles.

Average Efficiency

  • Electric – 314 wh/mi
  • Petrol – 36 mpg
  • Diesel – 43 mpg
Average Prices
  • Electric – £0.34 kWh
  • Petrol – £7.36 per gallon
  • Diesel – £8.21 per gallon
In practice, the cost of fuel for your journey will depend on your specific vehicle and factors such as size will impact this. If you know the efficiency of your vehicle, head over to our EV Charging costs calculator here to get a more reliable figure.
