My magic mileage figures are down from 15+ to about 13.2-13.5kmpl.

This is basically because a driver now drives, and the driving is in total rush hour, bumper-to-bumper traffic.

21.3 kmpl in city??

Which city is it? Got no traffic and only straight roads?

Even Ford advertises 22kmpl as Highway figure.. (correct me if i am wrong).


But if it is actualy 21.3kmpl in city, then i am game for it. Going to sell my car tommorow to exchange a Fiesta TDCi.

21.3 ?

ACI folks could achieve only 13.8 KMPL in city with AC. How could you manage 21.3 (and that too in the run-in period I guess) ?

By the way, whats your calculation ? Are you measuring from full tank to full tank ?

Must be a wrong calculation. Please let us know how you calculated the average.

its no big deal in chd. You have long staights with 65kmph strictly enforced speed limit.
In noida which is thrice as much crowded as chd, I manage 16kmpl on my 2002 indica.

Ya,

Its a no big deal in chandigarh. The first tank of 1500 Rs hi speed diesel gave a remarkable 997 KM. If we calculate it the FE becomes around 22.

So this is no Joke.

LOL
