Vehicle: Ford IKON Flair, '07
Kms Done: 590kms
Fuel Consumed: 42.61
Fuel Efficiency: 13.84

This involved some 'real' ripping for about 200kms. Which means, staying most of the time at the red line. Plus 80kms of Bangalore city traffic.

Pretty Good Figures, it seems.

The mileage on my Punto 90HP (MJD) is settling around 15-16kmpl (measured tankful-tankful). I cover around 620km on a full-tank. Usually there is one highway run included in that (around 150km round-trip). Rest in-city on typically short runs. Highway-only mileage is around 21kmpl. AC usage these days in 100%.

Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

Maybe am speaking too soon , but here's my bit on my i10 Sportz Kappa2 that's run about 1800 kms so far

Tankful method employed to check the FE

Trip: Bangalore-chennai and back

Distance: 335 Kms

Onward - Bangalore to Chennai : 335Kms/18 Litres = 18.6Kmpl

Return - Chennai to Bangalore : 336 kms/24 Litres = 14 kmpl

Why this huge difference in FE while returning to Blr (given the same route) - no points for guessing and you guessed it right

A. Full AC on all 90% of the drive

B. My Heavy Foot !

Fuel: Shell Regular Unleaded Petrol
Tyres: OEM Goodyear Eagle NCT5 with 32psi normal air checked at every fillup at the same filling station.
Driving style: Anything but sedate!

This was according to my most recent tankful-to-tankful test after I filled up today.

Pardon my ignorance, just wondering if the No sunfilm installed (I understand you mean to point towards the excess AC requirement)
will really impact the FE.

Example- I have my AC on level 2 and my windows rolled up/windows no film/windows open. But my AC still on level 2 and as I dont think it acts like a temprature controlled thing the FE shouldnt differ much?

I say this knowing Fiesta does not have Climate control !

BTW I get an FE of 13 in semi -city 100 % AC.

Don't really know if having a Sunfilm will affect the FE or not. As you rightly pointed out, without a Climate Controlled AC it really shouldn't matter. But I'll know in the next few weeks for sure since I recently got some Sunfilm
