A highway run gave 13.4kmpl; 100% AC and cursing at safe 100 most of the time.

this is what my c220 gave me on the highway. which is 4.5L/100 km with ac on a few times. i'm really a cold blooded animal.

that turns to around 22.22 kmpl. which i guess is

I'm satisfied and am not trying hard to get that FE.
The FE is great.

My last two city runs gave me about 18.9 and 18.2 km/litre on Shell's normal unleaded petrol, this was with the a/c on for about 20% of the time. The car is due for the 20,000 kms this week, so will update post the service, though I am not expecting any substantial gains in FE post the service.

My 1.6 italian beauty gives me 11kmpl with 50% AC on shell unleaded. Who says a car needs to be fuel efficient ? I say the driver has to be fuel efficient in his driving and theories that the Palio 1.6 gives 7-8kmpl are balderdash . I am sure the same applies for all the other four wheelers on our ravaged roads.

So were you expecting a lower FE with all those Mods? Again the same arguement , depends on the driver how much he can take out of his vehicle.

@harish

Yes I was expecting it to drop initially after the mods were installed, cause you cant go fast without more power, and more power = higher fuel consumption. But yes as you said, it depends on the driver, and I'm getting a FE of 10 with my driving at the moment.

ganesh,

Extracting the maximum mileage from the last drop of fuel is all down to the driving style. But, the engine also plays a big role in FE as we all know that MPFi engines give far better FE than their carb counter parts.

I get around 14.5 kmpl from my old mpfi zen. AC usage is around 40%-50%.
This is from tankful to tankful and mileage is amazingly consistent and hovers between 14.5 to 15 kmpl always!

i20 Magna Mumbai City 5000 kms
12.4 city - 50% ac,

My last tank fill was 620 kms/38 litres ~ 16.3. 520 kms on highway (Shirdi trip) and 100 kms on heavy city traffic. I think the highway figures would be above 17.
AC was on 75%
