    Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    Off late ive been getting a FE of around 20km/litre post my second service.. The first top up after the service i just got abt 14kms/l but since the last two top ups ive been checking the manual count am getting a FE of about 29kms/l with AC as usual

    Thats a great mileage..

    When do you upshift and what rpm do you maintain during city travel?

    Sorry guys there is a correction here... I meant 20kms/l and not 29.....

    kvk: i normally drive within 2000rpm range max push to 2500 with light footed driving stayle u tend to get around 20 with ease..
    Also i drive a lot during the non peak hours in Mumbai which adds on few numbers...

    Latest FE Update.
    Usually I get 14-16 kmpl. Full city and very short drives.

    Yesterday went for a small trip in the night. Got a whopping 25.1 kmpl ! :clapping This is on 2-lane crowded Kerala semi highway. :dancing (Kazhakkoottam to Shanghumugham beach round-trip, relaxed drive, no AC. good traffic in one direction, very less traffic during return).

    My odo now stands at about 4k. Last 3 tankfulls at the same bunk has given me a FE as follows, tankful to tankful method:

    * 10.7
    * 11.4
    * 11.2

    The on-board comp seems to be off by about 0.5km/l everytime.

    All of them are 100%city with AC on most of the times. Nothing to harp home about but not very disappointing either considering the traffic situation in Pune and me always driving to work during peak traffic hours. Of late certainly there is slight improvement in the performance from the puny engine.
