M-800 mpfi 5speed (2001 model)
gives me 10-122kmpl in the city on AC and 18-19kmpl on the highway again on AC(tested this while going for a very long drive with full load and crusing @80-100kmph)

My baleno fuel efficiency figures

Highway (avg. speed 80 - 100 kmh) - 14.5 kmpl
Highway (160 kmph+) - 10 - 11 kmpl

Dude in the city with AC on 100%, you should atleast 10kmpl, I drive on the most congested roads in Chennai at speeds between 15-25km/hr, I get more than 10kmpl..

On the highway, with your speeds (80-100 kmh) in 5th gear definitely more than 15kmpl, how much has your car run?

Well I keep revving hard often and also my car has wide tyres 205x50R15. That's the reason for low mileage in city.
By the way, I have got 15.5 kmpl in the highway when I drove really careful not exceeding 80 kmph. My car has run 32500 kms till date.

Hyundai i20 Magna
Km's on the odometer is 1800

I get an average of 12 km/ ltr
80 % of the commute has been home to factory and back which is single single occupant with ac on 100% of the time and traffic is generally moderate to light and at times very very light. (Considering Koyambedu to Maduravoyal is now 6 lanes!!)

Talking ANHC-09 FE figures (Amazing and Surprising)

I bought ANHC in Oct 30th,09.
During my running period of my ANHC i traveled from Bangalore to Vellore (Enroute golden temple)
and I tried fuel efficiency check.Before embarking the journey I filled the tank (odometer-120 km) at Shell at Hosur road
During this journey the during cruising the FE figure was near 17.5-19 kmpl for most of time.and and after coming from
trip.after 4-5 days of usage I filled again tankful petrol (odometer reading-692 km) a total of 28.01 ltrs.
By this tankful-tankful method the FE is working out 20.42 km.
Out of this 572 km more than 95% journey is highway at nearly constant speed of 75-80 kmph (in 5th gear) as I was limiting engine RPM <2500.
Also my driving habits are anticipative and not knee jerk type, never hard on right pedal but slow build up and no hard braking etc. But
I am surprised at this figure?
Can anyone share his highway experience with ANHC.

ANHC has a very good engine in terms of FE figures. My friend owns one and has on more than one occasion received such figures. Specially on highway. He is also the sedate driver types so I guess it's normal for the ANHC.
Cheers

That's a very good FE and that's what is expected from the Honda engine. Enjoy the car.

Hey bullock-Car,

i own an ANHC since last 6 months. my city drive FE is from 13.xx to 14.xx
my highway FE with full load ~ 4 adults plus one child with boot load of luggage have been ranging from 14.xx to 19.xx during different trips.
The peak i got was 19.8.

i have also found that if you drive in the 4 gear @ 70-80KMPH speed or 5th gear @ 80-90 KMPH, the car gives best in class fuel efficiency.
The trick is to minimize (=near zero) the frequent acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle and drive constantly / consistantly at the speeds stated above.

enjoy your car, this is one of the features ANHC gives, together with best in class pick-up

During 80-90 kmph in 5th gear the engine will be doing a lazy 2000-2200 rpm, at least in AT.

The constants speeds/RPM at which you drive are amongst the most mileage-friendly. And with the ANHC having a sufficient power-weight ratio, it doesnt struggle - making its engine that much more relaxed when cruising.

With your driving pattern, I would say you should expect these figures!

Also congratulations, you seem to be one of the sensible drivers on the highway. Its so much easier to drive along with smooth drivers than the 'knee-jerk' type.

I have noticed 2200-2500rpm in 5th gear running at 80kmph.With simple thumb rule of '4x' meaning with speed of 80Kmph @2000 rpm or 100kmph @2500rpm, gives best fuel efficieny not to mention correct gearing is ensured.Have been getting 15.xx consistently in city driving with light foot and full loaded on highways upto 18.xx.

congrats on your car and your mileage.

I don't drive with a light foot, so i do not get anywhere near the mileage you specified on my ANHC. But those mileages are very much possible if you drive around 80 and <2500.
My typical mileage in City is 12.x and on highways around 16.x. I do push the car on highways - so very happy with the mileage i get.
