Default Re: How many kms do you do in a month?

So the real question IMO is how many kms do you do in your car/bike or in total. Would like to break up in terms of kms usage PM-

500 kms in my car over the weekend
500 kms in my bike both weekdays/ end
500 kms using public transport during mostly on weekdays

Earlier all the kms were done mostly by my car but since the petrol prices went up the other ratios increased!

800+ mostly, sometimes it is 1200 max. Of course I am considering normal months when there is no vacation / highway-drives.

on an average about 800 kms a month without any long drives. Total in a year with long drives would be in the range of 12-15 k

After switching to diesel, I've covered 4500 kms in a month. Diesel is so easy on the pocket for people who love to drive and travel a lot.

On an average about 670 kms/month.

Office commute is about 500 kms. Rest is errands + weekend usage. But, off late it seems to be increasing. Trying to convince myself to buy a diesel.
