On an average Swift Petrol delivers a mileage of 12kmpl and the mileage delivered by diesel is around 15kmpl. In short petrol costs Rs.51 per liter and diesel costs Rs.36 liter, if you calculate, the petrol engine will cost almost Rs 4.25 per Km and the diesel engine will cost Rs 2.4 per Km. So I believe the picture is clear and the choice is easier to do. Observing the given calculations it is obvious that Swift Diesel will be the best option. I would still suggest you to go for a test drive and experience yourself.

Maybe the Petrol Vs. Diesel debate has been discussed to death before. However, the usual quote of breakeven if its 20000km/yr (or near about) travel to break even for diesel prompted me to do some calculations.

I've published a Google Spreadsheet comparing Swift Dzire Petrol and Diesel.

In the spreadsheet, I've assumed the following (for my case)
* Period for calculations - 5yrs
* Average yearly usage of ~6500km, increasing yearly by 10%.
* Petrol price increasing by Rs.2/- every year, beginning at Rs.52.
* Diesel price increasing by Re.1/- every year, beginning at Rs.37.
* Average mileage of Swift Dzire Petrol @ 11km/ltr and Diesel @ 14km/ltr (adopted from Swift's mileage according to IndiaAutomobile.com).

The sheet is also downloadable in XLS format from here. It provides an option to include/omit yearly distance increase, include/omit fuel price increase, etc. Feel free to play with it.
