Re: How much do you spend on petrol/diesel each month

There is a part of me that thinks we should do more for the environment blah blah fossil fuels running out blah blah. But then there is the part of me that likes to fill up turn the key and go for a drive and hear that V6.

I will admit that I have started to walk more to save petrol and get a bit of excercise so I am kind of doing my bit.

Edit: I love the fact that looking at my post again, I couldn't even spell exercise!

Re: How much do you spend on petrol/diesel each month

I keep using my other two cars (the 1750 and the Moggie 1000)to go to work bizzarely thinking I'm saving money on the petrol. Trouble is I don't think they cost any less

Perhaps I should buy a diesel

Re: How much do you spend on petrol/diesel each month

About 280-400, depending on work really.

I'm coming up to 48K miles service in March and I bought the car with 6k miles in November 2004, so that means Ive done about 35K miles in one calendar year!!

At an average of 40mpg, that equals 875 gallons of fuel!!


equals 3977 litres per year

@ 90p/litre equals a shocking 3580!!! Just on diesel fuel!!

Just imagine if i had a GTA.....


On second thoughts.....

Re: How much do you spend on petrol/diesel each month

I travel 1000 miles a month. I get 380 miles from a tank which costs 55 to fill up.

(1000/380) x 55 = 145.

Wow! That's a lot.

I personally don't even want to think about it. It's darn depressing.

Re: How much do you spend on petrol/diesel each month

When we visit the wifes family in Thailand the fuel is around 18p (pence) per litre. We thought of dumping the duty free & bringing bottles of fuel back...

Re: How much do you spend on petrol/diesel each month

i briefly owned a Toyota Carina E 1.8 diesel and i only had to fuel up about 12 times in a year, now doing about the same miles im filling up every 10 days OUCH!! 18mpg is not good is it? but the toyota was dull as dishwater, my 3.0 V6 may drink fuel like a fuel drinking fish but the extra cost is worth it for the smile it puts on my face, yarboo sucks to the environment
