5 lakh per petrol model of petrol. 6-6.5 lakh for a diesel car of the same model. That means the diesel will cost around Rs 1.5 lakh. Let the fact that the diesel model gets more mileage than the petrol model. An average person’s car runs 1000 km a month. That is, 30-35km a day. For a petrol car with a speed of 1000 km, the fuel required for a 55-liter car is 45 liters for a diesel car (an approximation). As of September 2015, petrol costs about Rs 64.74 a liter and diesel costs around Rs 48.02. The fuel cost of the petrol car which now runs 55 km is Rs. The cost of diesel cars is Rs 2641. The average profit per month is Rs.
On average, the life expectancy of a car is 5 years, which is about Rs 11,000 a year. That means the profit in five years will be Rs 55,000.
