Daily Fuel Consumption and Cost

Petrol:

  • Daily Distance: 50 km
  • Mileage (Petrol): 22.05 km/l
  • Fuel Needed per Day: 50 km / 22.05 km/l ≈ 2.27 litres
  • Daily Fuel Cost (Petrol): 2.27 litres * ₹100/litre = ₹227

CNG:

  • Daily Distance: 50 km

Monthly and Annual Fuel Costs

Assuming 30 days in a month:

Petrol:

  • Monthly Fuel Cost: ₹227 * 30 = ₹6,810
  • Annual Fuel Cost: ₹6,810 * 12 = ₹81,720

CNG:

  • Monthly Fuel Cost: ₹118.50 * 30 = ₹3,555
  • Annual Fuel Cost: ₹3,555 * 12 = ₹42,660
