How much do you spend a month on petrol?

Just wanted to know what everyone spends on petrol per month on their M3 e92/3 model.

Preferably UK guys as you US lads have extremely low fuel prices

Around $400 - $600 even though I work from home - I like to drive for fun. Work pays for my gas so it's all good!

^^ Aren't you thinking of buying an m3? You should factor the gas into your calculations...

Thanks a lot, shame that most of the answers if nearly all are you US guys, petrol prices are so redicilous here.

What do you guys pay per litre? Gal etc?

Trying to work out in £ how much I'm looking at. I estimated £400/month, so £100/week

So basically a refill per week?

About 150 a month. I get 18-19 MPG, even with spirited driving. I only drive it on the weekends though. I think I paid 3.29 a gallon last Saturday. 93 octane in Dallas.
