    You may want to do a ECU reset, so all values change to the system default.

    You can reset ECU at the service center. A few members have done that by removing the negative terminal of battery and reconnecting after 10 minutes. I havent tried that so cant confirm.

    Recently, I did BengaLuru-Honnaavara round trip.


    Fuel Efficiency on the MID: 29.2 kmpl
    Fuel Efficiency from full tank method: 28 kmpl


    Total distance: 998kms
    Road conditions: Excellent. 2-lane NH throughout except for 4 lane for ~170kms. Ghat section for ~140kms.
    No. of people: 2
    Luggage: Minimal
    A/c usage: ~ 150kms
    Speed: Around 80kmph on normal roads and even less in ghat sections.


    The F.E. on MID was 33.7kmpl when I reached Sagara from BengaLuru. It reduced later, since it's ghat sections thereafter.

    I generally used to get 22-24kmpl on highways since I do not go beyond 100kmph.
    Since, there was ample time during this trip, we decided not to exceed 80kmph to see the difference and here it shows! I have saved at least 500/- due to this. :p

    How can I manage this while behind the wheels of a FIAT :confused

    Definitely am against rash driving. But when doing empty stretches on a 6 lane highways, its way too difficult to stay below 100 kmph :evilsmile

    I was simply amazed by the FE figures quoted by fellow members, I have completed 9k in 4 months, I am getting a mileage of around 11-13 KMPL in my car, Mine is a pure city drive, I am based out of Bangalore, Here is my driving pattern

    1. Most Often I don't rev the engine beyond 2400 RPM, 90% of the time I drive in 1500 - 2200 RPM band, Since Traffic is pathetic and mostly moves at a crawling pace, I cannot avoid clutch driving, I use full clutch
    Every time traffic moves a bit, I just release the clutch to move car forward, The average speed is anywhere between 15KMPH to 20KMPH , With AC I get mileage like 11-12.2 KMPL and without AC Max I got was 13.3 KMPL

    2. If I take my car to highway, I drive in speeds around 120-140 KMPH, I Get around 15-15.5 KMPL, Once I drove car at speeds around 80-90 KPH, I got around 18 KMPL

    Looks like something wrong either with Car or my driving style, I also got Air filter cleaned

    Please help how to get better FE figures
