    Fiat 1.3 MJD 75HP
    14KMPL in city (chandigarh) , 90% AC is on
    18kmpl on highways . many times to delhi , AC always on.
    13kmpl on hills , AC 70%
    Once i was talking on mobile and was slowly driving car in 5th gear , just filled diesel and reset the ODO, car was crawling on 35-40 speed , was not pressing accelerator , and i talked for like 50 mins , when i checked Avg consumption it came to be 32kmpl , than again i did it for few mins , watching IC it was giving 35-40kmpl , and when I Intentionally put off AC mileage increases by 20%.
    Good to do when u r short on diesel and Pump is miles away.

  3. Most recent test report of my MJD..

    two back to back days running a total of 700kms
    [KTM-Ankamaly-Athirapally-KTM(Day 1; drive time: 05:00-07:30, 13:00-14:00 and 15:00-19:00; load: 2 adults)]
    [KTM-Thrissur-KTM-Mallapally(Day 2; drive time: 15:00-18:30 and 21:00-00:30); load: 3 adults]

    got avg mileage of 23.1kmpl on ODO...even after facing rough day traffic except for around 250kms, 80% on AC, was raining most of the time...road conditions-excellent(Ankamaly-Paliyekkara:wow) to pathetic (Ankamaly-Mookkannoor-Athirapally :uh)

    in between I checked FE by TFM to see it as 21.4kmpl for 320kms (filling at Perumbavoor CoCo on the return trips of day 1 and day 2) and in these 320kms was where the worst traffic was dealt, including the festival crowded Manarcad church on day 1 evening and day 2 afternoon and Srikrishna jayanti processions all along on day 1 evening.. Took the Manarcad-Uzhavoor route instead of the MC road till koothatukulam, as it is shorter distance and better roads all the way.

    Reporting myself from KTM..exact place s vazhoor...

    My fuel efficiency is damn low, I have driven about 300KMS by now mostly in city, I never crossed 2.5K RPM, I am getting mere 9.7KM/L, Please see the image,
    My question what is the exact way I should drive in bumper to bumper to traffic? to get the most mileage? This has become a major concern for me now 2012-09-11-024.jpg

    Bombay roads and traffic sucks.If traffic doesn't slow u down potholes takes over.Am getting 12-13 Kmpl in city and recent Mahabaleshwar trip (700 kms , 50-70 Kms uphill) gave me awesome 20 kmpl with 50% AC.

    Just allow your car to settle down mate. 300 kms on Odo is way to low to comment about mileage. Realistic mileage can be achieved after @ 2500-3000 kms!

    Grande Punto 1.3 90 HP

    On 12/9/2012 while coming back from Pune, I completed 45000kms in my GP90 HP :). The average I got on the day was as follows:
    Dist A - 784 kms, ACA - 16.7kms/l @ avg SPD A - 38km/h. Out of 784kms, 70% will be Highway driving & balance will be city B2B. Similarly my trip B showed SPD B - 63 km/h, ACB - 18.4 kms/l & DIST B - 279.6 kms.
    Though my driving is quite spirited on the Highways but I try to be safe, getting this average is very good. I am sure with much more relaxed driving I can get better average.

    No, not really. I remember getting 25kmpl when the car had run only 500km's. It's all about the conditions and how we drive.

    its a brand new car don;t worry..

    Reset ..drive for 50kms and check again..

    Make sure you are on avg mileage screen instead of real time mielage
