my cars are guzzlers! . consume 500/600lts of premium fuel a month on an average.
My daughter used a Smart 800cdi, so her bill was 60lts-diesel[1800kms]per month
My Wife also makes up, to bring the average family usage down, she uses a E250D and only 160/180lts of Diesel a month!!!

Yeah combined FE (Highway+City) with A/c on about 80% of the time is around 12kmpl. And I do sleep at home but occasionally only!!

Last monthly bills show expenditure of 26,000 bucks on fuel .. That includes all night meets , track days , college going and other activities .. At 70km/ltr (speed 97 + 5ml Oct boosters/ltr) fuel doesnt come cheap .. Specially we you travel 15 kms atleast everyday and returns 6-8km/ltr ..

Two tankfulls every month, roughly 70-75 litres - comes to around 3-3.5K at the present rates.

Excluding the one-off highway trips in between.

Whoa, Mc, at 70km/ltr, fuel IS cheap.


I do about Rs. 5000-5500 of diesel a month on the Sumo. Only city driving - no trips of late. Not counting the Marina since I dont pay for that.

Swift - 4500 to 5000 per month. Not including Long drives / driving holidays and so on. If included, monthly average would be Rs.1000 or so more I guess

My Petra takes me everywhere. I do 1500km at least a month, and at 9kmpl, the bill hovers around the Rs8500 mark. And everyone used to complain about the terrible FE of the Petra 1.6.

Alto - ~2500
ZMA - ~1000

Its usually varies from 2500-3500 depending on driving done in a particular month & also on the fact that in some month bike is used more(read lavasa trips ) while in summer & rains its only car.
