Default 2001 Hyundai Accent GLX

My 2001 Hyundai Accent GLX gives the following mileage relatively consistent
~13-14 kmpl on highway driving with 20% AC
~12 kmpl on highway driving with 70% AC
~11.5 - 12 city driving with 80% AC

Of course my daily commute is a straight 11 km stretch each way from one end of Palm Beach drive to the other end which is the highway driving

Have you noticed any increase in overall FE after switching to the Green Cotton replacement filter?

Since when replacement filters are supposed to increase your FE? Infact, we should thank it if it does not let the FE down.

More Air intake, Free Accelaration, More you feel like revving and higher the consumption of petrol/diesel, just human pyschology

There might be increase in FE but I never noticed!
And for the FE to increase you will have to forget the replacement filters, CAI and drive slowly within the rev limits!

I asked him as many of these after market filters (K&N, Green Cotton) claim to increase FE.

I have not fitted one in any of my vehicles and as pulsar56 mentioned, I drive slowly within the rev limits to get the maximum FE

Oooh...That's (FE) exactly what my Tata Indica Xeta GLS, which is still 210K cheaper that Ritz ZXi, offers. Then, what is it so great about MUL's k-series petrol engine?
I don't know about others but this is an eye-opener for me - thanks for the info.

mohandas,

The car is still fairly new (~3,000 kms done) and the best FE is usually derived from the engine once it has crossed the 5,000-7,500 kms mark.

Also, the speeds mentioned on the highway (120-160 km/hr) are not ideal for FE. I'm sure once the Ritz clocks a few more miles, the FE will improve.

Cheers,
gpa

I'm just talking on Paper statistics. . .

Xeta is 63ps - Ritz is 85
Xeta is 980Kgs - Ritz Zxi is 1030
Xeta has 165 13 inch tyres - Ritz Zxi has 185 14 inchers.

If it still returns same FE, I'd say not bad!

Where did you get this data, mate? It's all wrong
Check this out --> Tata Indica V2 Xeta 1.2 GLS - BS III vs Maruti Suzuki Ritz Zxi BS IV | Car Comparisons - CarWale.com

It says Xeta is 1060Kgs whereas Ritz Zxi is 1030.
