    Too much for Rs. 70/-. If travel 50 passanger a bus income increased by 3,500/- for 100 KM journey. 100 KM fuel consumption will be 25 litres (4 KM per Lt) of Diesel or Rs. 775/- (25 x 31/-). Then a single journey, bus owners can save Rs. 2,725/-. per day 2 trips they can earn Rs. 5,450/- per day and Rs. 136,250/- per month (25 days)
