Toruk_Macto - Go for diesel even if it is 800-900 Km running per month. I also have similar running per month and opted for Linea MJD. Not sure what Petrol prices will be in future but it will keep on going UP. I fill in ~35 liters diesel at ~Rs. 1500 whereas my wife fills similar quantity of petrol for ~Rs2500-2600 (swift vxi). That will surely bring smiles though initial investment is slightly higher. As said by other mates, you will start driving more considering economy and the additional money will be equate off soon. The mileage too is good for MJD. I get ~14kmpl in city and ~20kmpl on highway. If it is Diesel then I don't think there is any other choice than Punto . I have not driven Punto however being a Swift (petrol) owner for 6 years, I can easily feel the difference in handling, strength capabilities of Fiat cars (Linea). I have driven swift just once in last 3 month since I got my Italian babe ;-).
