    Normally my gf and i used @180 litres a month. We drive a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder with a 4 liter V6 with 270hp. It weighs 4800 lbs and has a 90litre tank. $1.37 x 180= 246.60 CDN. We live pretty much in the downtown core so we walk everywhere. Work is a ten minute walk for us:). But yesterday was a fuel thirsty day for the PF, my gf and i went to her grandparents place for Thanksgiving Dinner(very delicious one i might add!). Well they live in Kelowna BC which from our place to their place is around 415kms away.

    Heres a map.

    We needed to be their for 7pm so we left at 2pm when my gf got off work. Traffic on Highway 1 was not bad so managed a average cruising speed of 125kph. Speed limit is for the most part 110kph on the Coquihalla Highway. Going east which we were is very hilly drive. Because i was rushing i used 18L/100km of fuel going to Kelowna, so i used 72 litres going there at $1.37 a litre so $98 there. We got to her Relatives with thirty minutes to spare before dinner. We stayed till midnight then we drove back home. We didn't want spend the night there and have to drive back in the morning. We filled up in Kelowna and we took our time coming home. It took us just over 5hrs to get home but the truck used @14l/100km. So 56 litres back at $1.24/litre(fuel's cheaper in Kelowna) cost us $69.50. $167.00 in total for the trip.
     
  2. I use about 100litres of diesel a month.
    My average fuel usage is 20.5km/litre

    It's a Ford Focus diesel with 90 sleeping horses and a weight of 1200kg or so?
    Diesel costs €1.279 currently, which makes about €128 per month.

  4. I use about £35 PW in my Diesel Siggy 2.0L 160ps, most of my driving is around town so having a Diesel doesn't really save much, average consumption is about 29.9 MPG at the minute IIRC. Current price here is £1.35 per Litre.

  7. I use around 40 Liters of petrol for my 2007 Suzuki Swift.. I get around 13 KMPL. Here in India, it costs 74 Rupees(1.5 USD) per liter. So i spend around 3000 Rupees(61.5 USD) a month for petrol.
     
  8. Petrol is ~1,8$/l, diesel is ~1,75$/l here. We don't have a car though. If we had one, we would probably spend around 75$/month + still buy some bus tickets. What we pay on purely bus tickets? More.

    In my truck I have to fill pretty much once a week. I'm a daily driver and SRT8's are not known for fuel economy. Also when im alone I have a heavy right foot lol!.

    I spend around $470 a month on fuel

    My girlfriend's new Mustang is good on fuel economy. It is a V6, 305hp 6spd. She's had it for just about a week and a half now, its a daily driven car as well and I checked fuel gauge this morning and its at half tank. Girlfriend puts less mileage on her car as well.
     
  10. I spend about £500 a month between the
    Subaru and the mercedes,sometimes more
    if there's track days
