    Hi,
    My car has done 16000 so far and I did a trip from Chennai to Coimbatore with 4 adults and 2 kids in my Punto. Boot space was fully loaded. Filled the Diesel at Shell. I was driving between 100-120 kmph. Average fuel consumption was 17.8kmpl. Just wanted to know what is the average we can expect on a fully loaded punto.

    This is actually good mileage considering the load and the speeds at which the car was driven. If you do coast a lot with sedate driving and speeds around 80 kmph, mileage beyond 20kmpl is quite easy to get.

    Brilliant average I would say. If you can keep the speeds between 70-100 you would get more than 21 kmpl.

    Thanks a lot for your inputs. At the end of the journey, average speed shown on MID was 71kmph. I'm sure I didn't travel at this speed on highway which was around 7 hours, I'm just curious how it was calculated

    Yes its perfectly fine. You covered around 500 kms in 7 hrs . So average speed is around 71 kms/h. Average speed is nothing but the total kms divided by the total amount of time taken.

    Hi nibedk,
    If the average was 70kmph, shouldn't the mileage be more. As per earlier two posts when the speed is around 80kmph, we should get 20+kmpl. Pl clarify my doubt.

    Sorry to say but with 2 kids onboard you were driving at 140-160kmph.

    I would suggest you not to overspeed when you have family with you.

    i believe it was for short period. 140+ is too much on indian roads.Please avoid such speeds, when with family.
