    @Jayakrishna that is an exceptional mileage you got there. Try hard to break the diesel record which is 46.33 Km/hr & the same was achieved by a Multijet engine :). Hey hope your mid is not showing mileage / 2 litres ;)

    i dint cross 70 on the speedo.
    i used thegear shift pattern guided by eco drive.

    1st gear max rpm 2200
    2nd gear max rpm 1800
    3rd-1500
    4th-1500
    5th cruise between 1500-1800( before the turbo starts to spool)



    any slope that i had to climb, i let the rpm come down to 1000 in 5th gear and i would shift down to 4th which would pull the car up easily at 1500 rpm. again i would shift to 5th while the road is flat.

    the max speed yesterday was 75.


    just feel that there is an egg below the throttle peddal

    On my recent trip of Pune-Kolhapur-Goa-Belgaum, my Punto gave me an overall avg of 21.3 KMPL. The total distance covered was 1127 KM.
    The best avg I noted was on my way back from Belgaum to Pune. For the first stop that we took after 193.6 km near some Hotel the Avg of MID was shown as 26.1 KMPL. I did not go past 80 even once and the avg. speed for these 193 KMs was 58 KMPH.

    That is terrific!!
    I do follow a driving pattern similar to yours, but find it difficult to sustain over long periods. :steering
