    how annoying.

    drive 45 miles every day and a tank usually lasts about 8 working days (so just shy of two weeks and a weekend)

    costs about 30 a week

    Mine varies wildly but i'd say about 20 a week (commuting to work), nothing outrageous. I only have a 10 mile round trip to work but at weeknds i sometimes spend another tenner depending what i'm doing...

    about 70 euro to fill the tank and it lasts two and a half weeks (maybe three at a push) if I'm only going in and out to work.

    It varies for me. I only do short drives normally but then I have to do long drives to the UK and back every so often.

    By the way fuel costs more in Germany and NL than in the UK. They're up to about 1.65 a litre for super plus, that's 1.31 according to XE.com.

    I wish It's a 55 litre tank, I alternate unleaded/super each time. It's between 55-60 a tank to fill.

    Ouch.

    I get through about 10 ave Diesel per week, unless I have a business trip, in which case it varies (but I do get 40ppm back on my expenses).

    The MX-5 gets through a bit more, I'd say ave 15 per week, depending on what trips the Mrs makes.

    On the brightside prices are due to fall a few pence per litre so it will get slightly cheaper

    I normally put in 60 a week of V power petrol and that gets me about 360 miles, majority of my miles are motorway, and my DIS is now showing that the car is averaging 31.2mpg

    So far have put 300 of the black stuff in the motor this month - yes I do a fair bit of travelling with work. Luckily I'll get most of that back when I claim for business mileage at the end of the month.

    I spend about 80 a mth on fuel, i only use my car at weekends and do about 100miles each weekend if that.

    Usually the car just sleeps in the garage as i walk to work or the missus drives me in if its raining or if i am late out of bed...............which is pretty much every morning.

    About 75 a week, that gets me about 520 miles from my new A4.

    I didn't think that was too good compared to my old A3 2.0 TDI but having read some of the other posts I'm now a bit happier

    well I think it is cheap!!!

    I would spend a lot more money if I had to use the public transportation, not to mention time and also inconvenience...

    In my case 100 it comes cheaper in the end.

    The option of using public transport isn't there for me. To get a train to work would mean leaving home at 5am and making 3 changes to do a 52 mile trip.

    So my fuel/car costs are well worth it to me as well.

    Who given the choice would rather take public transport?
