And here is what I got in the first short highway ride.
FIAT - you rock.
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.
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
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!
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
Achieved 32.9 km/l after returning from South India meet. Photo taken just after climbing down the hair pin
