@suman, I thought you got the Safari so that the Fiesta could be rested somewhat !! Looks like it's time for another diesel in the garage

I spend hardly anything on petrol since it remains filled in..! Only consume on an average Rs.900 a month for CNG. ( Indica XETA 1.4 GLG) Avg Distance @ Month - 1000-1050 km

For the Lancer we spend around 1500-2000 a month on HP Power..! ( Mitsubishi Lancer SFXi 1.4 - 2001) Avg Distance @ Month - 350-400 Km

On an average about Rs. 4000 a month. I split it unequally with my father. Yeah, try squeezing out fuel money out of allowance!

Heh-heh, it got a rest from my route but its now taken over what the Ikon used to do, so........well, need an adrenalin surge occasionally & the only diesels that could give me that are way over in price terms at the moment! Maybe when the Fiesta's due for a replacement I will think of it!

Actually both are wrong. For the car it is 2000 (if not for car-pooling, it would have been 4000). While mentioning 1500, I forgot to factor in the 12km increase in commute due to my office moving recently to new premises.

The bike gets around 200 worth of petrol a month.

For santro, 1000/month and ikon 2000/month. Cos the santro is used rarely and the ikon frequently.

Santro gets refueled 1000 everytime it reaches 2/4 mark and the Ikon gets refueled everytime it reaches 1/4.
