    It is relatively easy to be calm when the traffic is less, but jokes apart, calmness is a prerequisite for good FE.

    Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    My car is now 8 months and 6800+kms old. I'm consistingly getting @14 km/l with 70% AC ON. And I'm driving mostly on highways.
    I remember the very first trip to My Native Place - On the day of delivery - and driven by driver, without AC, has returned average of 16 kms! As it was a brand new car and the driver was very experienced he never went beyond 80km/H. But since then I took the charge of her. Because of the silky smooth 4 Lane road I can not keep her below 80 now :wink: . Result? she has never returned that high average. :mrgreen:

    In today trip to Mysore and back,the MID showed an avg consumption of 14.5 over 327 kms with AC on 95 % of the time. Yet to do the calculation using tank full method.The speed was constant at 80-90. Did not want to push it beyond 100 this early. My Punto is 5 days old :-D

    Following Andy's tips to driving for great FE, I kept the rpm around and below 1500 most of the time today and on the morning trip to office through regular city traffic with traffic lights and all, I got an FE of 23.3kmpl without AC. Return in the evening was through heavy rain, low visibility and slow moving traffic. AC was on all the time and overall FE was 20.0kmpl.
