__Solution(By Apex Team)__

Total quantity of petrol consumed in 3 years
$\begin{array}{l}=\left(\Large\frac{4000}{7.50}+\frac{4000}{8}+\frac{4000}{8.50}\right)\text{L}\\
=4000\left(\Large\frac{2}{15}+\frac{1}{8}+\frac{2}{17}\right)\text{ litres }\\
=\Large\frac{76700}{51}\small\text{ litres }\\
\text{Total amount spent}\\=R s .(3 \times 4000)\\
=R s .12000\\
\therefore \text { Average Cost }\\
=R s . \Large\frac{12000 \times 51}{76700}\\
=R s . \Large\frac{6120}{767}\\
=R s .7 .98
\end{array}$
