    Aashish, I am not the only one, you also joined now :p. I achieved 80-90 Km/Hr in 5th gear 2000 RPM:- max 26.5 km/L (45 Km distance)

    Sun, we are comparing with FIAT claimed ARAI (19.9 KMPL) figure and tried to replicate the same in Real world; We are running our CAR with AC, MUSIC and with gear engaged to check maximum.

    For Petrol owners, check the 1.4 ARAI:- 14.6 KMPL & 1.2 ARAI:- 15.2 KMPL; I am sure you are getting more than ARAI figure with the gear & velocity combination in Highway. So Don't be disheartened ;), you guys are not far behind from us for mileage perspective as you think..;)

    If you scroll through this thread, you will find that many tfians have reported a mileage of around 25 kmpl and more for highway drives..

    Ohh Sorry, I didn't check whole thread. Then we can backfired to FIAT for giving us more ( more than 19.9 they claimed) .. ;)

    No second opinion about that. I can extract 17+ on a decent highway without a drag race but with a very decent average. 16+ is assured but only the dezires(menaka) always come to disturb the punto(viswamitra) from his tapasya(for FE):D

    Even TJet returns excellent figures of 21+ on empty highways. On city roads its a different story altogether.
  8. Once i covered 310kms and the needle was nearly touching one division from the mark of full tank. Since the fuel tank was of 45L and there are 6 divisions, 1 division would correspond to almost 7.5L. That's to say my Linea was giving more than 30kmpl. I believed that I'd made a gross mistake in calculating. I was driving at a sedate speed of 60km/hr and that too at noon when the traffic is at its lightest. Now it seems that it is possible!!!

    In a recent long drive of about 220 kms one way, my beauty returned a mileage of 17.5 kmpl. Driving conditions were - 100 % AC, constant speed of @ or above 110 kmph, in few empty stretches did 150 and @ 20 kms of bad roads where had to drive her mostly in 2 gear. Note that my ride has done only about 2000 kms. So I think, shall settle for this mileage
