    Hello Guys,

    Well am proud owner of Fiat Punto^
    All is going great except for average of my car which is not greater than 11km/L in highways. I know its very very Less as compared to other cars :eek:.

    I came across many threads where many said they are getting average between 15-17km/litre.

    Well is it like am expecting much or car is not performing as per my expectation?

    Plzz Help!:confused

    Did you reset the tripmeter to get accurate highway figures?

    The way I do it is : I keep Trip A for the entire trip to and fro. Trip B - when I want to check how fuel efficient a part of the drive, say for example over a long stretch of open road, has been.

    It gives accurate readings.

    Gurjinder, is right check the mode of computation.incase u driving at very high speed on highways like over 120-130 the FE would be less.

    Drive at 80-100 kmph and you will get around 16 kmpl on highways.

    Please give these details:

    How old is your car?
    How do you calculate the mileage?
    How frequently do you shift gears?
    Do you drive with your left foot resting on the clutch pedal?
    Do you rev hard in each gear?
    At what RPM do you shift up?

    On Sunday I did a 380 Km drive on my Punto 1.2 on Nizamabad Highway. Got a mileage of 12.3 Km/l. Driven mostly at 110-120 Km/hr. Like Fiatlover said if you keep the speed to 80-100 you will surely get 16 KMPL.

    Srijith,

    These are the figures I got in my 1.2

    Avg speed 80-100, FE= 18-19 (Highway) Always AC
    Avg speed 40-60, FE= 14-16 (City) Without AC

    @180kmph, FE= 8kmpl
    Also in Mumbai traffic the FE drops to 10-12.5 kmpl with 100% AC
