If you choose Petrol car and assume you get 12Km/L as avg and driving 300km per month then you need to pay Rs 1500 per month. (25 Liters x 60Rs)

If you choose diesel car and assume you get 16Km/L as avg and driving 300km per month then you need to pay Rs 760 per month. (19 Liters x 400Rs)

So you save only Rs 750 a Month on choosing a Diesel Car but you need to Spend 1.5Lakh more for a Diesel Sedan Car.

Why do you spend 1.5lakh more as an additional investment and save just Rs750 per month?

Hi,
Going for new diesel car involves investment of around 80K extra compred to petrol version car.If you go for diesel version car the gains can be considered after using the car for around 40 to 50K KM or so. Hence If you are regularly using for around 1.5k km like that then worthinvesting for diesel version car.
