It was created in Open Office. I'll convert it to Excel and upload that. I think there is already a format that was uploaded somewhere on the forum.

I always fill the tank to full. Have a log book in car to note down Petrol Price, Bunk Name, Date, Odo Reading, Petrol Quantity.

Filled those in Open office to generate this chart.

FE is calculated on tank to tank basis.

My SwifDy returned 16.5kpl, in Bangalore city conditions with around 60% A/C.
Driven most of the time early/late hours, beating the traffic.

Always a IOC regular and fill in either of the following:
a) IOC at Nagawara junction, ORR
b) IOC at Banaswadi Road, enroute to Cox-town
c) IOC at Bellandur, just off Airvana office

Car: Palio 1.2 ELX, 2002
odo : 82K
FE: 10-11 (80%AC, driven in Bangalore traffic)

I got the car for ~1.2L. I have spent ~25k on the car (new tyres, new clutch,misc. repairs), and I am planning to spend a bit more (suspension overhaul). I get tax rebates on fuel, thus I am paying ~Rs 32/lt for petrol. Thus, effectively I get a mileage of ~14-15.
The car does ~700Km a month. I couldn't have asked for better VFM.
I am planning to do an mba next year. Parting with my first car would be painful.
