    Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    525km's of city driving, with a/c ON a few times. Most of times, fully loaded. Display shows 15.8. Could have easily be 16+ had I have not given in for the temptation to go pedal to metal, a few times. :)

    Haven't did a tank full yet, normally do once the yellow light on dash glows. But I'm expecting my best in-city FE number, so far.

    :drinks That is pretty good. My car at this age (3000kms) was showing an average of around 15kmpl.

    Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    That is really surprising. Perhaps you are the ONLY ONE I know who is facing this problem. So I would like you to go through the following check points and GET BACK with your observation.

    1. Driving Style: What speeds do you maintain regularly. Everything else being alright, depending on driving style you can expect the following figures:
    around 70kmph - > 20kmpl
    80-90 kmph - 18-20 kmpl
    100-120 kmph - 16-18 kmpl
    >120 kmph - 14-15kmpl

    2. The fuel station: Try a different fuel station and ensure that you are getting good quality and right quantity of fuel. Many owners have reported good figures with IOC normal Diesel.

    3. Check Tyre Pressure: Ensure that the tyre pressure is normal in all the four tyres.

    4. Clean Air filter and AC pollen filter.

    Do these checks and please get back on your observation. This is important not only for your benefit but also for everyone else reading this forum.

    looking at figures here i think i am getting a extraordinary mileage here on my linea done 2500 kms.

    trip 1. Dist 250kms > speed 100-130> 19.7 kmpl
    trip 2. dist 250kms > speed 90 -120, one burst at 160 > 22.5 kmpl
    trip 3. dist 150kms > speed 120 mumbai expressway > 21.2 kmpl.

    its but obvious that expressway will give less mileage than state highways as your foot is continuously on the pedal.

    Hi, here is the thread for all mileage discussions.
    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=214

    What's your mileage?
    Tip- Use instantaneous consumption on MID for a few days to see the impact of your driving pattern on mileage.

    Just returned from a trip to Ooty.
    Total distance: 972kms
    Total fuel: 43.74L
    FE: 22.2kmpl
    FE from MID: 23.6kmpl (for the return stretch)
    Speed maintained mostly around 70-80kmph traffic preventing me from going any faster. Occasional spurts to 120kmph.
    Includes bumper to bumper city traffic in Cochin, Coimbatore and an hour long blockage at Mettupalayam, climbing up the ghats in second and third gear and highways in Kerala with moderate to heavy traffic. AC on all the time.

    Fuel efficiency : MID : 19.9

    My calculation in recent 5k : 21.1

    Great
