6000. Swift petrol. Roughly 4 fill-ups a month for about 1500 each.

I get an average of about 10.5 on Mumbai roads (about half of the distance covered is on the Western Express highway). Slightly spirited driving, but its well worth the money (listening to the free-flow... haha).

Between 4-5K per month depending on whether I end up driving my Wagon-R more on petrol or on LPG

Spend about 5k on my 800 and about 10k on my cedia. I drive about 100k every day from West delhi to my office in Gurgaon (sohna road) plus weekend long trips. Makes it around 3.5 to 4k every month.

My car: 2.2-2.3k per week, making it close to 9k per month.

It's a very costly affair taking car to B'lore every week :(

Palio Stile Multijet: Rs 3500/- (total fuel cost / no of months of ownership)
Pulsar 150: Rs 1000-1500 (before buying the car) Rs 100/- (after buying the car) (the kilometres are still racking up because my cousin borrows it and pays for his running)
