Amazing. Have the same question, are you sure the calculation is right. A new car just a month old giving 18-23 is just a wow

A wow to the vehicle and more importantly a wow to the person who steers it.

Just back from Pune-Kolhapur return trip in Honda Jazz (Nov 2010).

To and Fro distance travelled : 504 kms
Fuel efficieny TFT method : 19.3 kmpl (with AC on 100%)
Fuel efficieny with in car indicator : 20.1 kmpl

This was with speed between 80-100 kmph for 80% of time and some spirited driving 20% of time (touched 140 kmph).

Yes absolutely, I bought my Ritz on December 2009 and went for a long drive to Digha when the odo was showing only 250 Km. We traveled for 400 kms and my car returned a mileage of 19 kmpl. I tried to drive my car @ 80km/hr most of the time.

my cousin has the older version (non crde and he reports his best of 10.22km/ltr in the city run with ac on throughout, btw he has logged close to 88000 kms on his odo.

a taxi fleet owner beside my home owns the same crde as mine for his personal use and states that he always get 12-13 km/ltr on the highways even with ac on throughout. (does vizag-hyderabad quite frequently and does it in 10 hrs which means his average is about 85). his claim is that if the speed is kept about 80-100 the mileage is excellent and drastically reduces if the speed is above 100, need to verify this though

other crde owners - curious to know if this is the normal efficiency with the
crde? would love to know
I am also of the same opinion. The best mileage in highways is given between speeds 80 and 100 kmph. Once we start going at higher speeds, the fuel efficiency starts reducing...i have noticed this too.

All FE is measured by the tank full to tankfull method.
Even I observed increased FE post fuel price increase. Did anybody else experience it?

The reason is chennai to bangalore is uphill hence you got lesser mileage than bangalore to chennai

Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

Recently I get a feeling that the mileage drops drastically when I use AC compared to when i dont use AC.
Is there a possibility for that?

I drive a Verna Crdi, 2009 model. I haven't got the exact figures yet. I need to check it next month when i take it out for a long drive.

Is there anything specific that i can check at the service center.

Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

Hi. I own a Tata Nano LX model with around 7,600 kms on the clock.

Here are my fuel economy figures for the last two months:

With A/C: 19 kmpl
Without A/C: 22 kmpl

My routes are not regular and most of my driving is done at night when traffic is at a lower rate. Also, I do often take the car to Marine Drive, Bandra's Carter Road and also to Palm Beach Road in Navi Mumbai. The car handles a dream and I've found that its as good in traffic when I take it to college.

The maximum range I got out of its 15 litre tank is a whopping 178 kms (with AC).

Has anyone else got a car this fuel efficient in this day? I dont know, but I drive my car pretty quick, and yes, it has done 104 kmph too on one of these night-time drives.


Hope the information I shared was worthwhile to those reading it.
