Sandeep - as I mentioned - after reaching my office I stopped and saw the indicator and clicked a pic. So this figure is for these particular 17 kms only - the other avg indicator which says (2) in the upper right hand corner of the display is stuck between 5 - 5.5 always....

What I get when I check on a tankful to tankful basis - varies from 17 - 19 kmpl.

That is great and explains the success of the diesel skodas, despite sometimes high maintenance!

Esteem: Definitely need to get engine, etc. checked.
Ikon: Maybe too heavy a right foot? The 1.6 is not really known for it's FE. But you should get 8 - maybe needs a service.

Santro erlx gives me 15kmpl regularly within city with AC on 90% of the time,regular sedate driving(50 kmph in 5th gear 60% of time).
Highways its more like 17kmpl when I push it hard a keep the speed in the 80-120 kmph range.Sedate highway driving gives me 19kmpl.

Infractions: 0/1 (5)
Default Shell

I tried shell for the first time are reading some posts here...
Here are the results for first tank fill from Shell..

Total kms done - 520, Fuel consumed - 25 (+-1 ltr)
Economy - 20.8 (+-1) kmpl.
Terrain: 270kms mysore trip, remaining bumper-bumper b'lore city traffic.

Bumper-bumper I mean, my average speed for office commute is at 20-25 kmph for 11 kms one way :(

Looks good. I think it's mainly because of mysore -tip..excellent road all along and didn't push the car this time. Would like to measure for city driving next and post results here. I expect it to be around 15-16 kmpl.

5 speed M800

I wanted to post my Petra's figures from long time. But some how forgot.
Anyway,

City driving with 50% AC - 11 Kmpl.

This has become very consistent now.
I regularly fill at Shell (alters between Normal and Super) and it is always full tank.I could never do any real highway trip so far, barring few Bang-Mysore-Kannur trips in which more than half of the distance is always bad.

This gives around 12.5-13.5 Kmpl with 80% AC

By the way, my tyre change (that was some 6 months back) from 175/65/R14to 195/60/R14 (and alloys) did not have any impact on the mileage figures.
