A shade over Rs. 5000 for two tank fulls of gas for my Fiat. A big Thank you to Bangalore traffic for this. A daily drive to pickup my wife and some weekend city driving is what adds up on the fuel bills.

Rs. 2205 for my Enfield. I deal with a 58km round trip ride to work and back.
Starting Point : Cox Town, Bangalore
Work Spot : ITPL, Whitefield
Direct Route distance : 14km
My Route : 29km
Time Taken : 50 minutes on a good day. Worst, 60 minutes.

Swift VDi - Approx 3200, 800 every weekend (Average running 1000KMS a month)
Honda City -2500, Average running 350-500KM a month, not sure where all the fuel goes !!!

Fed up of Petrol price now, seems will have to go for CNG on Honda City, against my liking :(

Figo TDCi - 2800 worth of diesel per month.
Santro Xing - 1000 worth of petrol per month (Driven by my wife. Her office is only 3 km from our home, so she takes the car out only 2-3 days per week)

So, total expense on fuel is around 3800 per month.

This will change now, as my office commute has doubled starting this week. It increased from 13 km to 25 km one-way.

I spend about Rs5000+ for my Santro.
Rs1500 every 8 days.
Average running of 25km per day.
Mileage inside Chennai city is not more than 9km/l

My alto doing 20Km/day.
Rs.3000+ /Month.

Plus maintenance of both the vehicle.

I could move into a house just next to my work place and use all that money for renting a good house there.
Alternative fuel is the only savior.

I used to spend around 12K for petrol each month for my OHC. I used to drive to office that is 35 kms one way, finally I figured out renting a house near my work place is better and have moved close to office. Now I have replaced my OHC with Dzire Diesel and I hardly spend 2000 rupees worth of diesel.

I own a Etios Liva and an Apache RTR.

Liva monthly running (Strictly City) - 500-600 kms - Rs. 2,800/- For highways, its funded from a separate pool (not mine )

RTA Montly Running - 600-800 kms - Rs. 1,500/-

An overall spend in the range of Rs. 4,300/- to 4,500/-

With the work from home option taken from the past month. This spending has come down significantly.

I spend around 4000 on diesel for my Linea, which clocks almost 2000 kms every month. And another ~500 goes into my wife's Scooty per month, which has about the RS/km factor as my Linea (!)

Default Re: How much do you spend on fuel every month

I do 2250 kms a month or 75 kms on an average per day in my Civic (or CIBBIC as per my car washer...try calling your Civic that, its addictive )....

This includes my two to three outstation trips every month.....total monthly fuel of 15500/- to 17000/- .

But I find it very affordable because:

- I do not travel by any other means in town, out of town (even 600 kms at a stretch) or in city centre, gave up on them (bus, train, plane) all since Civic came in.

- Diesel doesn't suit me. Everyone in my family are allergic to the diesel fumes and noise, in long distances it causes a lot of sickness to us.

- Comfort of a refined i-Vtec, as in Civic, is addictive and in Jaipur heat of over 45 degrees sometimes, life becomes difficult specially when you travel by public transport or 2 wheeler, with all the tension at work to top it. I think I have worked very hard for the last 9 years that I deserve to take my life as a celebration with a good car, and Civic (being a segment higher and with its supernice ac) makes me feel just that after every small run of stress at each stop during work hours. PS: My black Ikon before the Civic used to get as hot as a buffalo's tin-shade....thank god I bought a white car now.

- driving is my biggest need coz of work and leisure....my day begins in Civic at 4.45 AM with drive to Central Park (Jogging) and Gym and I am running around for work till 6 and then friends, literally entire day passes in the car.

- my girlfriend told me 'the best time of quitting a bad habit is...now'. I gave up smoking a pack of cigarette every day and now breathe nicotene-free air (3000 to 4000 Rs. and lungs saved), gave up frequent drinking at pubs with friends and keep it to every second weekend of just a beer and that too not mixed with driving ever (about 15000/- and liver saved) and even gave up on coffee at will (living with a dentist is tough! - she checks teeth for coffee stains daily lol)....so after taking charge of my life....the only money burner / passion left is Petrol....and its harmless and worth it too!

A good car does change your outlook, black tinted ikon brought the gangster out of me , and the new petrol burner Cibbic takes in 17k of petrol to give back some touching-kissing-hugging of quality life.
