    Journey Date: 13th Oct 2009 – 25th Oct 2009.

    Destination: Multiple (Ahmadabad, Sambhar Lake, Jaipur, Agra, Delhi, Jaipur, Sambhar Lake, Ahmadabad and back to Navi Mumbai.)

    Vehicle: Fiat Grande Punto Multijet 1.3

    Traveler: My wife, my 8 months old daughter and of course Me.

    Total Distance: 3550 KMs

    Fuel: 175 Ltrs x Rs 36 = Rs 6300/-

    Total Distance: 3550 KMs

    Mileage: 3550KMs / 175 Ltrs = 20.2 KMPL (Approx).

    Top Speed: 145 KM/Hr (Ajmer-Jaipur Express Way)

    Route: NH 8 (Mumbai – Ahmadabad – Udaipur – Ajmer – Jaipur)

    Toll: Rs 1890

    Issues with car: None.

    Tips: Avoid NH8 from Udaipur to Ajmer, instead take NH 76 till Chittaurgarh and then take NH 79 towards Bhilwara, its 4 lane all the way. I lost 4 hrs on NH 8 in-between Udaipur-Ajmer due to heavy traffic. But was pretty happy and had smooth drive on my way back on NH 76 and NH 79.






    Avoid driving on divider side, because you never know when does any dog or cow jumps on road from bushes on dividers.

    Actual driving fun begins from A’bad till Jaipur and Agra. The roads are makkhan (butter) and it’s hard to resist yourself to take away your foot from accelerator paddle.

    Completed 8600 KMs till date.

    Thanks Amogh & Aashay.

    Well I usually do the calculation over KM/Ltr basis. Covered 3550KMs with 175 Ltrs and got around 20.2 KMPL.
