Would like to share my driving details from Chennai to Hyderabad, last week end. The car had just completed 740 kms and 45 days after delivery. The beauty of 75hp BNW made me to plan this drive and started all alone. Fed the tank with 45 lts and tyre pressure at 32 psi. Set the speed limit at 80. Armed with few music CDs started at 6 in the morning. Driving thru Sriperumbudur >> Walajapet >> turn right to Chitoor (breakfast) >> Rayachoti >> drive over steep hillock and few hairpin bends reached Cuddapah (lunch at APTDC, Byepass) >> turn left to Yerraguntla >> Tadipatri >> Gooty (tea break) >> Mahabubnagar >> Hyderabad. Drive from Chennai to Walajapet (4 lane) was excellent and from Chitoor to Cuddapah (2 lane was good barring few traffic). But from Cuddapah to Gooty, around 110 kms was bad as the road work is in progress. Agains from Gooty to Hyderabad (NH, 4 Lane) was excellent. Total distance was 803 kms and travel time around 15 hrs. A/c was on during day for almost 9 hrs. At destination, could see the fuel indicator well above the reserve mark and delighted to see the mileage @ 24.8. On return journey, the next day, refueled to full tank and drove thru ORR >> Narkatpally >> Nalgonda >> Suryapet >> Vijayawada >> Guntur >> Chilakaluripet >> Ongole >> Nellore>> Gudur >> Redhills >> Chennai. Driving in ORR was an excellent one till Narkatpally after which till Vijayawada, we need to switch between left and right side of the road, at many places, facing oncoming traffic. This is due to road work and though the laid roads are good, it still delay the travel time by more than 3 hrs. This stretch is almost 250+ kms. At Vijayawada, missed to take right turn and went into city. Could join the NH after around 10 kms of drive. From Chilakaluripet to Chennai it is breeze to drive. Distance covered was 786 kms. Fuel indicator was on the reserve mark and mileage was 23.7. I didn’t feel the strain in driving for almost 1600 kms in two days and at many places could not realize that I’m crossing the speed limit of 80 but only after it beeps. Handling of vehicle to negotiate the humps, bad roads was great. A/c at 1[SUP]st[/SUP] level was good even at noon. My Punto could also demonstrate its braking ability when an Alto took a sudden right turn from opposite direction, near Nellore bye pass. I was within 75 feet and @ 80 km and could stop it without a scratch. The Alto is fully loaded and I was appreciating my Punto which averted a major accident. One thing which I felt need to be improved is its stock head lamps. Its of no use in highways and traffic. Looking forward was its first service and would like to experience its power @ 120 in my next long trip to Mumbai or Kolkatta. Sorry could not take any pictures on way.
