Superb - Time Frame Freeze shots. So what was the FE to Delhi and back?

The people of Mangar would be amazed at so many OTR's happening in their back yard!

Thanks Ankit and Sudev.

I got an average of 8.1 kmpl including Jaipur Delhi highway and OTR.

Delhi-Jaipur I did in half tank so should be better.

I can just say GV outperformed most of the other vehicles... but not because it was GV but because it's driver was willing to take it everywhere and push it to its capabilities to get most out of it. Yogesh was more outgoing and experimenting than anyone else present around there!

Wow! great going. Now I'd like hear from all those people who put down GV as a soft roader. Yogesh, did you already install the skid plates?

Thanks Rahul, I was asking and it was delivering.. therefore GV has a fair share in the credit. I won't say it outperformed everyone but yes it was among the best performing. In my opinion the best were Servinder and RB Mods with their Willy and Ford. No one could reach up this hill expect these two.

Sarvinder and RB Mods on top of hill.

Its a very capable offroader, that too in stock condition, only thing missing is difflocks/traction control, otherwise it would have been best offroader in India.

Not installed the skid plates yet, will do that soon.

One question (Not related to offroading)

Did the 2007 GV have steering wheel controls for audio etc?
