How do you replenish the tank of your vehicle with petrol/diesel – by quantity in liters or round figure cash?



People say liters is beneficial than paying round figure cash and taking in points like 1.35 ltrs.
I have seen many go by paying Rs.100 or 200 and take in fractions.

  1. Round figures in Cash. Rs. 200/- or Rs. 500/-
    To get rid of the hassles of changes.

    Edit-
    It does not make any difference either we buy by quantity or value.

    Also we do not save much fuel if we fill up tank completely or partially. If we travel very less there is no point in filling up the tank completely. If we travel like a Taxi then we should top up the tank. Otherwise do whatever way you like. May be in a month there will be savings or loss of Rs. 1 (max). And that would be less than the coins we loose if we buy by exact liter of petrol.



  2. i pay in round figures like rs 200/- rs 500/-.
    if i ask to replenish the tank with liters, the petrol bunk boys will not give change.
    like in APARACHITUDU (‘Anniyan’. ) the small change the boys refuse to give on the lame excuse of shortage of change amount to crores of rupees in a year.


  3. In a round figure cash of Rs.100 because I can’t pay remaining 48 paise.


  4. It depends upon man to man.
    But I always take it in round figures of money-500, 1000, etc.
    It enables quick payment and saves me from the hassles of change.
    Quantity wise it does not make any difference.


  5. I prefer getting tank-full gasoline (Petrol/Octane) and cylinder filled-up Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Btw, we have dual-fuel mode in almost all the vehicles used in Bangladesh in these days.

    1. Toyota X-Corolla (Car)
    CNG: Taka 220/-
    Octane: 37.70 Ltrs = Taka 2,854/-

    2. Toyota Starlet (Car)
    CNG: Taka 160/-
    Octane: 32.47 Ltrs = Taka 2,500/-

    Rate: 1 US Dollar = Bangladeshi Taka 70 (approximately)

    Petrol: 80% Octane (you would get ‘knocking’ of engine in some cars with petrol as fuel)

    Octane: is the one that contains 100% Octane. (Good for engines, though a bit costlier than petrol)

    Tip: It is advisable to fill-up petrol-tank to minimise on the evaporation loss. People buy 1/4th or 1/2 tank to save on money but the empty spaces inside the fuel-tank makes the evaporation quicker and easier when the vehicle is parked under sun.

    Hope above helps.

    Edit:
    LOL! what makes people to thumbs-down this answer?… i was wondering…


  6. Round figures. Leave the machine to do the calculation!!No human being can maintain even a semblance of sanity after a few such calculations!
    The enormity of the problem is very well brought out by the calculations given by ~slsmhu .
