How to Calculate the Cost of a Car Journey

This new Google Maps based application allows you to work out the cost for your car or motorbike journey in India based on the current cost of petrol in your city.

To use enter a starting point and a destination. Then add the number of kilometres per kilogram your vehicle normally achieves. The application then calculates your daily and monthly fuel expenditure.

Your journey is also displayed on a Google Map. You can change the displayed route by dragging the markers. All the metro cities and state capitals in India are supported by the application.

The true "cost of a car journey" is however not only the petrol price but would have to take into account depreciation and standing costs as well. Then this would be a useful tool to raise awareness of the true costs of car journeys vs. public transport.
