Punto - One tank full a month so abt 45 Lts thats around 2000/- (Office being just 7 Kms from where I stay, its very less travel + if weekend trips are not much one tank full will suffice.)
Wife's Dio - Used very less about 150-200 per month.
So that brings close to 2200 a month +/- depending upon usage.

Post the 1.6 coming home , the expenditure has gone up a bit.

I tank up twice in a month but the second tank up always rolls over to the next month as well. I would estimate the monthly expenditure at about 3500 or so for an average of about 600-650 kms of running per month

Good write up. Liked above two lines most !

First being on humerous side and second being relevent to thread. :-)

My monthly fuel expenses have gone up after conversion to CNG though average is close to 25 Km / KG. But started using and enjoing car more due to green fuel and without guilt of adding carbon foot print though i am travelling alone in car.

It is close to 3000 per month.

The i10 gulps about 50L each month (typical running is about 600KM).

So approximate expenses are ~50*75 (average price is around 73.XX) ~ Rs 4000 per month (approximated to nearest 1000).

Post How much is your fuel consumption per month?

In the light of always increasing fuel price and all the tumult/noise we make every time there is a hike in price, it would be great to know how much fuel do we actually use on monthly average. that will give us a picture if hike really means a lot and can even topple our budget as some are suggesting.

I start with me of course, I use like 60-70lts of petrol pm. with this recent "huge" hike i will be paying like 500Rs more pm for my fuel bill!!

is it a lot? i don't think so. and i can save income tax on it. so, if you are in top bracket you will end up paying only 350Rs pm or so!(simplified calculations)

think about it! does this all worth so much our energy and time?

Default Re: How much is your fuel consumption per month?

I have an Alto K10. My running is quite low (mostly 1/2-1km trips at a time), and in two years I have filled 17 tanks (421L) which have given me about 6,500km. Currently I am consuming one tank of about 29L per month, so my monthly hit will be about Rs.300/, nothing much to worry about.

When my son was driving the Accord, he was filling in Rs. 10K worth every month, so in his case it would be a hit of around 1K.

Of course with diesel nearly half the cost of petrol, and increase (if any) marginal, driving a diesel car a real VFM today.

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

With the fuel prices being what they are today, the earliest responses in this thread (started in 2007) are bound to have changed. My calculated guess is that the 39% figure of upto Rs. 6500 could actually well be over 55% as on date!

I fall in the same bracket
