Looks like you are getting good numbers. What was your mileage immediately after the second service?

I have a Dzire ZDI, its 3 months old and covered around 6500 KMs. Initially I was getting a mileage of 14-14.5 in Bangalore city traffic with 100% AC on, mostly on Bannerghatta Road stretch between diary circle and nice road junction. After second service I am getting around 15.25, Is this a good mileage in Bangalore city traffic or is it bound to increase after third service? Dzire/Swift owners, please comment on this.

In highway, I got 18 with 100% AC ON. This was before the second service. Mileage is calculated on full tank - full tank basis.

You are still lucky mate. My Spark was earlier giving me 11-11.5kmpl with AC. but for last 2000 kms, it has dropped to 8.5kmpl. I wonder why??

Yes, I always fill at the same station, same nozzle (Shell). Still there is a difference from time to time. So I believe only in a visual level. And the difference varies from 250 ml to 1250 ml after auto cutoff.

My 2007 Swift Vdi ABS has clocked 65,000 kilometers and has been giving me a constant mileage of 15kmpl with the AC in the city, nothing less than that. Highway figures are poor (enthusiastic driving).
The best figure was 18kmpl, don't remember when.

80% city driving (read it as bumper to bumper with avg speed 20KMH) and 20% highway driving with 100% AC ON on a Skoda Laura 2.0 CR Diesel Manual => 13KMPL. This is measured over 6500 KMS.

90% city driving (read it as bumper to bumper with avg speed 20KMH) and 10% highway driving 100% AC ON on a Swift Petrol (old non K series) => 12KMPL. This is measured over 50000 KMS.

Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

Guys i am so disappointed -- everyone here gets minimum average of 10km -- have u seen mine ... i can't even do 375 km in 45 liters

CAR - OHC 1.5
86k on odo
4x2x1 Headers- expansion chamber (no KNN airfilter )
195/65/r14


Figures without AC
(speeds not above 100kmph)
City - 7.5
Highway - 9 ( updated )

Occasional gunning the car. but soon as im on 50kmph i am on the 5th gear

Yes i am disappointed .
