Diesel and Petrol is completely your choice. If you are concerned about low cost running go for Diesel. As the old thumb rule that states more than 1500kms a month or more than 16000kms a year diesel works out well, otherwise petrol should just be fine. You will need to look at the ownership cost, the premium price of a diesel car and its maintenance cost along with Petrol. Yes the petrol prices are high but you will be able to reap out of the diesel car only after 30-40K onwards. Diesel engines are work horses and for such low mileage of 500-600 kms a month diesel doesn't sound a good option, its just a current trend that everyone wants to go for a diesel when it doesn't make sense for low monthly or yearly mileage. I think for 500km's per month its sensible to buy a petrol car.
