Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

Zen 2006, I drive it regularly to my office bsk 3rd stage to electronic city during non peak hours 12 PM and 10 PM and i am consistently getting 15kmpl without ac on i know this can get better if i dont rev on my initial gear but at time i do rev high on the initial gears(not above 3k to 3.5k rmp) which is getting me this FE but i can live with it. And its covered 34k kms already.

My Linea MJD gives 16 - 18 in City and Above 20 always on Highway.

1. Best FE Figure (Long highway run)
During new year while returning back from Jalna to Thane I got 24.4Kmpl.
Total Distance: 454 Kms
AC: 90% usage
Speed: 60-80

2. Best FE Figure (Shorter highway run)
The overall best given by Linea (on a shorter Highway run) has been 25.7 Kmpl between Pune-Mumbai over a 120Km run with 100% AC usage.

I believe there is further scope for improvement (for me the driver) in both City and Highway FE. Overall quite satisfied with my Linea.

Did a tankful last Friday. My daily driving is about 50Kms in city. Will update on the latest City FE figures in days to come.

These are fantastic figures, with fuel prices increasing almost every other week, FE as huge as urs really makes me think of buying the linea mjd. The main reason i havnt gone for it is due to the rubbery gearshift it offers. I am waiting for new fiesta sedan but if takes too long to come to market i may go for linea.
How is your experience with linea and how many kms have u driven till date.

thnx

Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

With recent increases in Petrol prices the decision to go for Diesel makes more sense if usage is regularly above 1000Km/Mo. The FE extracted from a car largly depends on the external factors (Driver, Road Condition and Traffic). You can't change the latter two but former is something that is within your control. I think all modern Diesels < 1500 cc should be able to give such FE figures. Linea is certainly in the same league. I don't think Fiesta would be far behind in that aspect. But there are other things apart from FE for which you should definately consider Linea. Have sent you a detailed feedback thru PM. Have driven 18,000 Kms so far. It's been a year. The experience of owning Linea has been delightful.

I have a 2008 Optra Magnum Diesel. It initially used to give me a FE of 15 which had come down to about 14.5. However after the latest service which also included de-carbonisation the FE has jumped to 16.2. I am certainly not complaining.

My Ford Figo has done 500 KMs so far and gives only 9.5 KMPL. Most of the driving is with AC on.

My Swift DDiS gives me between 16.5 & 16.9 using the full-tank method only. This is a total city-cycle, and with fatter rubber (195) and bigger rims (15").

Considering current fuel costs (42/ltr for diesel and 63/ltr for petrol), if we take an average of abt 12kpl for the Petrol Swift, the per-km running costs work out as follows:

SWIFT 1.3 Diesel: Rs. 2.5 (approx)
SWIFT 1.3 Petrol: Rs. 5 (approx).

Given the fact that Ive done 35k kms in 2 yrs, I've more than recovered my money.

More importantly, though... I've loved every minute of driving the MJD. The Petrol has always seemed anemic in comparison.
