Averaging 40 kms per day (around 1200 in a month) in Honda Amaze requires two tank-full of diesel every month. Spending around 4,000 per month.

52 Kms on all working days i.e. 22 days a month translates to 62 litres of Diesel. Apporx INR 3500 for Office commute alone.

Another 200Kms travel every weekend on an average.
This translates to another INR 2500 to 3000/- of diesel used for week end trips exclusively.

Hence totalling to approximately INR 6500 fuel expense per month.

Our office shifted to a new location which is an SEZ. However, it means that I have to travel 50 kms daily. So the new cost estimates are as follows:
Cost-Daily: 333
Cost-Monthly: 6667
Cost-Yearly: 80000

I used to spend close to 5000-5500/- per month (excluding 1000 rupees for toll) on my Swift Ldi. Until of course with this new job I got AC cabs which has translated into a saving of 6000-6500/- per month, enjoying every bit of it!!

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

Till a few months ago, my monthly fuel-spend was Rs.4500-Rs.5000 for the Baleno, which covered my 5-days a week run to office and back (daily total 40kms).

A few months ago I moved to a place much closer to my work (total 20kms) and so a monthly fill for Rs2000 is more than enough.

More than fuel/money, my main saving is in time. Where earlier it took me 1hour min (more if peak hours) to cover the 20km to office, now it takes only about 15mins for the 10km. Not only that, most of this 10km (7kms on OMR and 3kms off OMR but a good wide straight road) sees me in 5th gear, which means a better FE (easy 14kmpl).

Work related travel - weekly - 250 km
Errands per week - 40 km
Typical mileage ~ 13.5 ~ 15.5 / litre
Fuel / week - 20 ~ 25 litre of diesel
Monthly ~ 100 ~ 125 litres

Around 6k / month

How I wish public transport is better in our "town".

I don't have a definite pattern to use the car but when I use it, monthly fuel expenses averages between 7-9K INR.

Work related travel is only 10 Kms/ day.
The long drives are frequent - at least once every 2 months ranging rom 1500 to 2000Km on every trip. But then there could be one or two months in a stretch when the car does not move out of the parking lot.

Here are more detailed statistics on the car expenses maintained through a mobile app - my ownership experience thread.

Daily running 100km.
Fill diesel worth 2000 every 4 days
So monthly fuel expense is about ₹ 15,000
I use an Innova.

Car mostly stays at home. Daily running is not even 2 kms but whenver the car is taken out it does a round trip of 180kms. We do a lot of long drives in it.

Car Honda City - Petrol (I'll have to now make this clear now )
Daily office journey + a few de-tours = 50km*20 = 1000km
Weekends = 50km per weekend approx ~ 200km
If I have to divide 2 to and fro annual trips b/w bangalore and Pune we're looking at 3600/12 = 300km

Total 1500km per month
Man! I didn't realise I was spending this much on fuel until I posted on this thread!
