Default What does your car drink

Is it an oil burner, or a petrol drinker or electric, or hybrid. If you have 2 cars, then you can select 2 options.

I have a Skoda 1.9TDI and a E220 CDI W211
Diesel is my choice since I travel extensively, the adulteration for diesel is far lesser than petrol and the wear and tear on engine is also less.
Also the torque on CRDI engines is far higher and a better option for city drive ... Even the FE is excellent ...
Skoda ...... City 17 KMPL ... Highway 20 KMPL
Mercedes.. City 11 KMPL ... Highway 15KMPL

Well many people go for the highest octane fuel available in the area. For example I go for speed 93 or XtraPower depending on what pump is there. So having multiple fuel options would be confusing. For example then we would need to include TurboJet, High Speed Diesel, XtraMile, Power, speed, XtraPower, speed93.... and so on.

My Indica LSi drinks petrol but has come dangerously close to drinking diesel at a few highway fuel stations where they simply could not digest an Indica with a petrol engine :-)
