It won't be clocking more than 500 kms on an average in a month.

Apart from the petrol Innova being silent & low on maintenance compared to its diesel siblings what are the other advantages of a petrol Innova over a diesel one? Is the engine as torquey as the diesel?
A used petrol Innova seems like a very good option for your kind of running! Highway drives would be a bliss! On the highway you may easily get 10-12 kmpl or more. I have heard people claiming 14.5+ kmpl for long highways, when driven very sedately on petrol Innova.
Ofcourse the engine is not as torquey as the diesel, but it is more powerful (AFAIRemember) and the topspeed is higher (160+).

My Amaze iDTech rendered smooth 20.1 kmpl during 4000 kms drive from Mumbai to Meerut and back with 20% in city traffic and 80% on amazing NH8. This is with ac on for full journey.

The average for Mumbai in-city commute is between 17.5-19.0 kmpl

Bumping this old query. Any responses would be appreciated. Punit - were you able to get any realistic figures for Delhi or any other city?

I was wondering how you managed such high economy and the answer is the high PSI rating. I would not go anywhere near 37psi. At speed, this can increase to 39psi or higher, reduce braking efficiency and you are looking at a possible tire blow out. The Vxi comes with skinny tires too. Braking is already compromised with the skinny tire foot print and increasing the pressure to such a high level will make matters worse. Apart from dangers of such high tire pressure, you are going to kill the suspension components. The ride will be very harsh.

32Psi is the highest I would go with a full payload. Please take advise from the forum regarding tire pressure. The car manual suggests values that favor fuel economy and nothing else.

Those figures are achievable due to high tyre pressure that is more suicidal for you, your family and other road users.

Don't misunderstand me but can you paste the screen shot or image of the manual that says 5 psi increase is required for highway/high speed driving?

With all kinds of mobile apps available out there, its very easy to collect statistics of fuel consumption. This way one can easily maintain a log of the car's fuel consumption over a period of time. All one needs is odometer reading along with the fuel consumption and price paid at each refill. It would be very good to see this running/cumulative FE log of the vehicle over time.

I think this FE plot would be a much better representative of the FE of the car rather than a single snap-shot/sample point. Would also make a confirming statement about the FE claim of the vehicle.

Chevry Optra TCDI LT 2.0 (100% Single Drive) - Done 80000 Kms as of Now!

City with AC - Mostly One person on Board - First 50k Kms - Around 10-12 KmPl. (Driven like a Lunatic)
Last 30K Kms - Close to ~14 , (Changed my Driving style considerably)

Highways - I remember my First Hydbd trip – 550 Kms – 50Ltrs – I had to look for Filling station when I entered PV Narasiharao Flyover,Hydbad. But It took only less than 5.5 Hrs for me to reach Marthahalli to Hydbd entrance(Shamshabad) ( Speeds done were close ~195Km/Hr)

Last few Hydbad trips - Well above 16 KmPL - Speeds maintained at a steady110 to ~120Km/Hr. Almost Overdrive all the time (This is where I thought , Magnum should have had a 6th gear)

Lesson Learned – If you really rev / push her hard / Unreasonably , she won’t complain much but then it would be at the cost of your Wallet.
