I dont know the best that we would have got, but I know the worst use to be around 6.5-7 but those come from big engines like the S and E, so I am wondering GTO y do you get 6.5 ona regular basis from your C?? dad's S in the city give about 6-6.5 atleast thats what my driver told me..

best I think would have to be around 15-17 from city 1.5

Cheers..

I have also got my city to give about 7-8 at one time, when I use to drive like crazi..but I think even after my really crazy drives in the esteem , i use to get very good milage..of about 12.5-14..i am talking really bad driving..70kmph in 2nd gear or even higher...pulling the engine until it cant go any further and it literally starts begging for a shift..

Cheers

What 12.5 at 100kmph? Man that's way less. Even RK had a similar problem with his City 1.5.

My uncles city 1.5 gives close to 20 kmpl with speeds between 80-100kmph.

Better get it checked.........

Question Heat and FE , related ?

On my erstwhile shogun
Best - 51kmpl ! (for the first 2 months when I rode by the book - even suzuki guys didn't believe me)
Averaged around 38-40 .. 90% hard riding
Worst - 32 (after I had the piston rings replaced)
All using normal unleaded petrol

On my erstwhile M800, 12 - 14kmpl (30% AC) .. city driving, using normal unleaded petrol


Current Indica 2000 LEi (no mods)

Best 13kmpl - Kolkata to Bhubaneswar - 50% AC (avg speed 70kmph, on completed golden quad stretches at 100-110kmph, incomplete stretches at sluggish off terrain speeds) , using normal unleaded petrol

Worst 7.8 kmpl - Within City, 90% AC and foot pretty hard on the pedal.
Average - 9.5 - 10kmpl .. primarily city.
All using BP Speed

Sometimes the FE strangely drops from the steady approx 10 range to 8ish, although driving style remains same ..

Let me ask a potentially silly question ..
Does petrol evaporate if the car is parked all day in 35 to 40 deg celcius direct sunlight ?

So there is a possibility of losing fuel in the heat (& humidity?) and consequently FE dropping ?
