    This is my favourite. Mileage of 28.6 km/l achieved on NH-3 during one of the weekend trips to Nasik. A/C off and speed between 80-100. Tried to achieve the magical figure of 30 but missed by a whisker. Will try again next time.

    To add, thought this might be helpful to folks in Mumbai & Thane.
    As per my experience, Forture Cars in Chandivli & Balaji Cars in Thane are very good in providing service.
    I have had very good experience with both of them.
    Please avoid Galaxy Motors, Mulund :)

    I had been on a Mumbai- Saputara trip in the last week of Jan. Saputara, for those who dont know, is a small hill station on the MH-GJ border and it is a part of Gujarat state. It is about 100 kms from Nasik.
    My Maserati impressed with her ride & handling capabilities. On a trip to Waghai, about 60 kms from Saputara on Saputara-Surat highway, she was at her best. I was able to cover the ghat section with ease, negotiating all the curves and hair-pin bends with confidence. It was a pliant , silky smooth ride and made the journey look effortless. On top of all this, got a mileage of 30 kmpl which was a pleasant surprise for me.

    Once again, would like to reiterate "She is the queen of highways" !

    Hi Girish,

    I have seen your drive quite a few times at Thane dont remember where, but I remember your Stickers. 30KMPL :eek: @ what speed do you drive? I have got max 21kmpl with my 90HP :D.

    Fortune - Sakinaka yes they are good but I have never been able to get my car washed properly for the past 6 yrs.

    Saputara- would love to see some photos of your trip & how are the roads.


    Drive safe.

    Hi Kiran,

    I realised that the MJD is a very capable, frugal powermill and I always try to extract the maximum out of it. I have got 25 KMPL on NH-3 on the Thane-Nasik stretch, with A/C off and maintaining a speed between 80 - 100 KMPH.

    I always wanted to achieve the magical figure of 30 kmpl, and when I finally achieved it couldn't believe it. Hence, pulled up alongside the road and took a snap.

    As you can see, it is showing 34 kmpl. Finally it got reduced to 30 as some of the stretches were real bad. But then, 30 is still quite impressive for a car that is the heaviest in it's segment. Again, speed maintained was between 80 and 100 and A/C off as there was no need for it.

    The trip was fun, it is a good weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai.
    Will post some pics soon.

    Hats off to you man, you really are getting some best results.

    Last week I did Mumbai-Goti-sinnar-Shirdi & back speed 120-140 kmph 3.5hrs single drive avg 17-18kmpl :)

    Week before that Mum-Pune-Kolhapur-Gaganbhavda-Vaibhavwadi-Kankawli-Sawantwadi-amboli-azra-kolhapur-pune-mumbai again 17/18 kmpl.

    Frankly I cannot drive slowly if I am on the H/W thats my problem. And most of my drives are work related hence time schedules have to be met.
