My friend Henry asked me to calculate on a napkin how much I spent on fuel per month. I have a greedy car, but I live close to the office. Still I was quite surprised by the number I got.

Let’s take some examples:

  • You drive a modest Citroen C3 1.4 HDI (4.4l/100km). You travel 20 km to and from work every day.
    You pay 5.22€/100km or about 42 €/month. 
  • You drive an Audi A4 break TDI (5.6 l/100km). You travel 80 km to and from work every day.
    You pay 8.23€/100Km, or about 263€/month.
  • You drive a BMW 750i (11.4 l/100km). You travel 50km to and from work every day.
    You pay 16.76€/100km, or about 335€/month.
  • Big spender: you drive a Range Rover Sport (15.90 l/100km). You travel 100km back and forth.
    You pay 23.37€/100km, or 934 €/month.

OK, if you buy a RangeRover Sport, you’re not really looking at the price, but still.

How much do you spend?
