    Guys its the way you drive your vehicle and the gear shifts at right speeds that matters a lot for FE... Irrespective its petrol or MJD.
    Also drive light footed that helps alot... You would find great FE reading from you FIAT..

    BTW my FE readings for the lonavala trip was
    KMS driven: 187
    FE as per MID: 21km/l
    Full tank to dry not yet calculated as ive yet to top up fuel.

    If u'd have driven it constantly at the same speed on your return probably would have got better numbers...
    As i stated u can get the best and the worst FE out of the car all depends how you want it to be and how to drive your Baby:)

    I have a 1.4 Linea which has done 13000 kms now.

    City FE (summers) with full AC at 24 degrees gives 12-13.0 km/L

    Highway FE (summers) with full AC gives 14.5-15 km/L

    City FE (winter) easily gives 15-16 km/L

    Highway FE (winter) gave me 17 km/L on tankful :-D

    P.S: Me and dad both drive this car and is usually revved till 3000 RPM from 2nd gear onwards in City and speeds maintained at highways are mostly between 110-140.

    Amogh,

    Another morning, another bout of steep FE :-D for a distance of 17.7 kms, FE is 17.5 kmpl.

    Its early morning, hence this can be equated more as highway than City though there were quite a few signals where I had to stop & there was moderate traffic there as well.

    And while we're at Highway FE, let me share few FE updates:

    My Petrol Linea returned with astonishing FE (though for a distance of 25 kms only) while coming back from Lonavala once. Pics below. 30.3 kmpl (AC ON) is the highest I got for short distance (previous highest was 18-odd)

    [attachment=2:3vpvcxb0]2009-10-04-old%20%2839%29.jpg[/attachment:3vpvcxb0]

    Again, in Nov'09, my Petrol Linea returned with 17.1 kmpl FE for a long run of 209 kms from Surat to Mumbai.

    Distance - 209 kms (Highway - from Surat to outskirts of Mumbai - Virar)
    FE - 17.1 kmpl on MID (100% AC ON, 4 adults + 2 kids + every inch of 505 ltr boot stuffed)
    Avg Speed - 58 kmph on MID

    :wow this inspires me to drive more light footed and also be more planned in picking the route and time of travel.
