Most urban car users do about 1000 odd kms per month, would tend to see an average of 10-12 given our typical city traffic.

I guess a petrol user will emd up Using about 100 litres a month so there you go - 8300Rs!

Diesel users would probably spend about 120litres, say around Rs 5500-6000 since most Diesels are driven a bit more than the petrols.

I drive a petrol esteem, gives anywhere between 11 kmpl to 15 kmpl depending upon AC usage and traffic on Mumbai roads. Daily drive of 37 kms on weekdays with some usage on weekends makes it close to 850 kms per month, Hence the average cost comes out to be Rs. 4,500 - 6,000. After the recent increase in petrol prices a die hard petrol head in me has stated thinking about next car to be a diesel :-(

I drive a 2006 Corolla, and always with the AC on as it has the H5 leather package, wouldn't want to dirty it.
About 60-80 km daily, run up a Rs 10,000+ fuel bill.
After changing old tyres to Michelin Primacy LCs, noticed a slight decrease in consumption, as they are supposed to have lesser rolling resistance.
Now let's see how bad it gets.

^^I think my next car will have only two wheels!

Right now I spend ~ Rs 2800 on petrol, car and bike combined, thanks to metro rail work which discourages me from taking the car to office everyday.

With the latest hike in petrol prices, my monthly fuel at Chennai would be for Rs3840 (pre-hike, it was 3425).
Add another 1500 at Kerala (Swift + Scooty).

I drive a 2001 1.5 Ohc type 2.

On an average i fill 38litres of fuel @Rs 70.65per liter which comes to 2690.
Now after the hike i will have to add another 300Rs to my monthly cost.

I spend less than Rs 1000 every month for buying diesel for my getz crdi. My office is at a distance of 2KM from my flat in Navi Mumbai. I some time feel happy that i am contributing in reducing emission by using lesser fuel. I also advise others to use public transport whenever possible. Its not just about saving money, its about saving our planet for our future generations.

^^^If I were you, I would not even bother taking the car for a less than 2km commute and would either walk down (can then combine the morning walk & office commute) or get a nice cycle and cycle down. And use the Getz for longer drives and highways.

My calculations are as follows:

Mahindra Scorpio: Rs. 4500 pm
Suzuki Swift: Rs. 1500 pm
Royal Enfield Bullet Electra: Rs. 500 pm

I spend much more on diesel than on petrol and would be killed if the govt. decides to take away the subsidies on it.

I am spending about 6000pm (pre increase) for three fills on my Santro. Sometimes if I use the Civic in town one of these may get diverted. Highway trips etc. added on top of that. So my monthly basic bill will be more like 6700 now.

My monthly consumption is around 90-110 litres of petrol a month, hence I will spend around 7.5k-8.5k a month on petrol for fiesta, and around Rs 1500 for my santro automatic.

I would have loved to walk but there is no footpath for almost 1 km (flyover). Its risky walking on that flyover. Also the climate is very hot and i did think of buying a cycle but did not as i am here for a temporary stay.

Used to be in the 5k plus bracket while commuting daily to office by car but now after the last two fuel hikes, actually fallen to the below 3.5k range due to shifting into the public transport mode.

Less tension daily, less wear and tear for the ride and yes much lesser fuel costs!
