I spend around 4k in petrol monthly.

My office is 2Km away from home but wife's office is 11 KM away. I drop her and pickup her on every weekday, so I have to make two round trips daily totaling 45 Kms.

I could cut my fuel expense by at least 40% if I let wife to take car and she picks and drops me instead.
This would also save my time, but driving is pleasure which I cannot let go easily.

Was travelling nearly 25 kms till now but with a change in team and office, the distance has come down to 8 kms for the round trip.

Thanks to absolutely zero parking space for any vehicle more than 2 wheels, it is my bike which does the duty. So four cheers to the double savings with fuel bills slashing by over half to around 3k per month (bike+car on weekends)

I consume about 70 liters of diesel a month, that translates to Rs.3500+ with the increased Bangalore rates. My carbon footprint just for the car translates to about 154kgs of CO2 per month (~140gmCO2/km for my car).

I plan to ride my bicycle more often.

With 20kms of To and Fro drive I have to top up my tank once a month. So my expenses comes to ~3500/- a month for my Fabia.

One a positive note, the fuel expenses posted by bhpians gives an approximate figure of how much people earn every month, considering 10% of their pay check goes into Fuel bills.

I have a Swift Ldi, My commute office is 20kms (to & fro), I spend about Rs.1200 per month. It used to be cheaper earlier but the recent fuel price hike has hit use hard!

Note: I get 18kmpl+ as I drive on NH7 and there are only 2 signals between my home and office

Swift - Approx 7000 INR now. Runs for about 3 Hrs daily.
Ertiga - Approx 8000 INR now. Runs for about 4 Hrs daily.
Time is a better judge here of usage, as they are both used in Mumbai peak traffic.

3 tank fulls ~ 9500 in my palio 1.6 Sport per month. = 2000 KM
Nothing less will Do
May be i could buy a diesel car by selling this car and paying a DP + buying fuel + EMI with this price.


1 tankfull = 1100. In Karizma for short trips with an fe of 25-30.
Nothing else can do.

1 tankfull in Activa =~ 5L = 400

Since i got the Fabia my average spending is about 4000. I go through a tank + half of fuel approximately which account for office running and some amount of local running to gurgaon noida for personal reasons over the weekend.

With a monthly running of about 700-800 kms, I end up spending anywhere between 3.5 to 4.5 k per month, for my Swift VXI.
