I did absolutely nothing special yesterday , by the time we were out of the jam i was just keen on getting to the place as soon as possible and pretty much the same on the way back. On the last 1 odd Km before reaching home i eased up to let the engine "catch its breath" and did not go over 60 at all. I guess if anything at all even during hard acceleration i did not let the RPM go over 3000-3500 and i was slotting it into 5th as much as i could when triple speeds were coming close. I think its just the way the car is built , on long runs and decent speeds she will give figures which most would be happy with , on shorter runs she wont - for instance my daily commute to office , no matter how much i pamper her i have stopped expecting her to give me over 11 - unless there is absolutely no traffic on the road in which case maybe 12-12.5 The same mannerisms were present with my Fabia 1.6 as well , 10-11 normally , 12.5 if i tried and on the highway the best i have got without really trying is 17.5 with speeds over 100-110 enough. With the Fabia however it was easier than it is with Tizzie to get the economy to go up if one tried.
