There's a term called "Fuel Poverty" in the UK; wherein any family spending more than 10% of its total income towards house heating come under this moniker.

Easily adopting that towards transportation costs in India, more than 85% of the population who have cars are "fuel poor".

Try asking mods for reimbursement...!

I was under the impression that the 1500-3500 category will be leading much ahead of the rest..

Bumping this thread more than 2 years later, would love to know what readers spend on fuel now with petrol prices having spiralled upwards.For me it's 1500 rs per month on a average (petrol only).

For me it's like :-

Accent- Rs 1000/- petrol and Rs 2500/- cng

Tvs star city- Rs 1500/-

Both figures per month.

So total comes out to be - Rs 5000/- per month.

Sameer

I spend Rs.500-Rs.2,500 on fuel for my Esteem Di every month. That's more than 100% of my total income. Is there a term called "Fuel Bankrupt" too?

While on the highway, I have a very poor fuel economy when running with the AC on and driving over 100 km/hr because of the short gearing on the Esteem. The manual says that I should not exceed 100 km/hr but I occasionally have to go up to 120 km/hr to keep up with highway traffic when I cannot give way for faster vehicles to go past me. It typically takes me about Rs.1,100 of diesel to cover a distance of 300 km. However, when cruising along at 70-80 km/hr (the Esteem Di's cruising speed), fuel efficiency improves drastically and I can cover 300 km with just Rs.700 of diesel. I don't make the highway trips often though; if I did do those trips weekly, I'd probably save on fuel by trading in the Esteem for an SX4.

For my Fiesta I do a tankfull twice a month and it costs me Rs 3000/- per filling. So total monthly fuel bills - Rs 6000/-. An additional cost I do incure every month is Rs 1000 for the toll.
