Hmmm... the fact you're in the UK is going to make this a bit more difficult. What is the cost of fuel there? More likely higher than here. Are you estimating the days on 8 hour work days? 8hours X 36days X (going hourly rate estimate) should get you a figure. Here I think you'd be pushing 40k-50k not really having all the info.
