Going by the price rise in petrol, it was a tough choice to make whether it is a wise choice to buy a petrol car. But giving the extra amount you spent in buying the diesel car upfront is almost equivalent to the amount that you would spend in running the petrol car for some years. This is with consideration that the daily commute is less 50 kms. Moreover, in case of a petrol car the maintenance headache is much less.
So, taking into considerations of all this factors, I gifted myself the car on 19th May, 2012 with a 1.4L engine.
