guys,

see the picture to believe it.This is what i normal see in my car ( ANHC )on the highways.

Even if i discount a little, i should be getting around 20 to 21 kmpl.

In city driving, its around 15kmpl.

Thats the 2nd ANHC here with 20+ KMPL on the highway !
No wonder Honda does not bother about Diesels.

hey Moose,

Yours is really a nice average. My uncle with the same car , same model is getting only 13 on the highway with full AC ( he drives only between 80 & 90 kmph) and 10 in the city>>full ac.

Lucky you !

nandan,
Mileage depends a lot on driving style. My car returns 9 KMPL or worse when my chauffer does his duty. I get 11 KMPL if i drive it myslef, all with congested chennai traffic and AC always on. Ask your unca to change his driving style at highway. What i have seen with logan is to very sedately push the accelerator. Sudden acceleration will waste a lot of fuel for the characteristic of this european engine.
Cheers

Guys!!! To my mind these figures do not reveal the real efficiency or fuel consumption of your cars.

I doubt if anyone here has fuel efficiency linked to the laden weight of the cars (passengers + luggage), the time of the drive in city or the speed at which it was driven in the city or for that matter the highway. Highway is supposed to mean cruising speeds but will stretch from Delhi to Gurgaon be considered as Highway? All I can say is I get 9kmpl in City Vtec sometimes it goes till 19. But that is just me driving sometime at 60 kmph or 120 kmph.

I hope the verbose comments point that please mention the speeds in City or at Highway. Every engine has a sweet spot, maintain it to get highest figures and smash it get the worst.

Thus I am not into FE figures. My figures are Rs 10k or 5k a month

The logan diesel has been giving a FE of 19.6 Km/L with 100% AC. This is a real figure that's been calculated by averaging the FE over the last 5000 km.

The car is my dad's daily drive and is mostly used in city traffic. The car is Efficiency personified

Went on a trip in a Corolla Altis before it's first service, and saw 19-20km/l mostly and got 13 actually. So this is no indicator of what you actually get because of all the disturbances on our roads.

SLK,

But i spent only to that extent on the petrol, so its confirmed.

It has not happened once, time & again it repeats. so i feel to a large extent, Honda shows approx. the right figures. Most of ANHC guys have reported a good average in the forum too.

It shall not be right to say anything on ATLIS, since i know very little about it.

can you come again on the Disturbances on the road, since i didnt get it what exactly your are saying...please.


@crackhead,

Thats a great average man. I heard that Diesel logan is good in average than the petrol one.

anyway enjoy !

Translates into frequent slowdowns by whatever means.

Anyways, I own a NHC, it's FE is good too, so in no way I'm saying that Honda Citys are not more economical than the other cars. BUT the difference is marginal, was my point.

Like the NHC, is good till driven with a light foot, otherwise it's FE is worse than cars like SX4.

All said and done, your car still returns a great figure.
