Yes. But as per others on the thread I can expect more! Which I am rather pleased about. So lets see what happens when the engine beds down properly along with the tyres and suspension etc. Once it settles in, I guess I will also settle in to a more predictable driving pattern too.

My Honda City S AT gave me 11.5 KMPL and then 12.5 KMPL at the last two tankfuls. That's entirely in the city with the AC on. I might just make a run to a nearby hill station on the 4th/5th of next month, so will report back with highway figures if and when that happens.

My ANHC with MT gave me 10.4,10.5 and 11.0 in the last three tankfulls with AC in the city. Slightly lower mileage because of low running per day i guess....

Recently did a Thrissur to Bangalore trip and got around 18km to the liter. Speed ranged from 100-140kmph with 100% a/c.

great fe figures, but how can you keep the speed at max 65 kmph and how do you calculate these FE numbers?

Roads down here in Punjab aren't that great and I wanted to test the max FE it will give me at various speeds. I am never in a hurry and usually keep at 80 max, much safer for me and others on road. I trust the OBC for the FE figures as I have compared it multiple times with manual calculations with the fuel and km driven. It's quite accurate.

If so could you give us figures for speed vs kmpl in say 5 kmph increments like this Mpg For Speed - Fuel Efficiency Vs. Speed
and Speed kills: testing MPH vs. MPG in top gear - MetroMPG.com
all in 5th gear so we get some idea of the sweet spot in MJD powered cars

Car: Hyundai Santro 2009, 16,000 km on odo.

It gives me 14-15 km/L in Mumbai traffic, with AC always on and flooring the accelerator whenever I get an open stretch of road.

That is one magic Santro you've got.
Ours gives ~13 kms in Thrissur traffic with a fairly light foot. Got over 80k kms on the odo, but it has given us only the same fuel eficiency from day one.

That's some good mileage from WagonR. I have never got such figure, no matter how lightly I drive my 2007 WagonR LXi. My running cost is over 5 rupee per KM.

I switch off the engine whenever I expect to be stopped for more than 30 seconds. I guess that helps me get better fuel efficiency.
