Default Another Baleno .....

Well, I've never tracked mileage seriously before, but had a feeling that
it was not less than 12. Now that I've tried to track for two tankfulls, here
are the results (post 3rd service):

Approx mileage : 16 km/l , "city" driving with AC off.
Fuel : regular BP/ Shell (auto cut-off)
Car : Baleno Lxi stock.
I try to avoid peak hours (definitely in the morning)
Driving style will bore enthusiasts : almost never beyond 2000 rpm
(this is not necessarily by choice), mostly around 1500.

I guess with AC on, I'll get something similar to rjstyles69.

meerkat, that is some great FE, especially in B'lore.
Wow, 16kmpl... v1p3r's Baleno has some serious competition as far as FE goes.

Well, I can legally claim Bangalore city driving, but I don't face nearly as
bad traffic condition as most Bangaloreans, thanks to mostly off-peak
hours, and also partly to the new, wider Bellary road. So what the mileage
really shows is close to the potential, -- Maruti may love it ! On the other
hand, I don't really drive with mileage in mind, just whatever feels
comfortable (as opposed to whatever thrills :-)).

Cheers

Hi Guys,

Here are my figures:

Maruti Alto 2006: City 12 Highway still to see (My current car bought 2 weeks back)
Nissan Almera 2005: City 9 Highway 13 -14 (I was driving it in South Africa)
Maruti 800 (without AC) 2000: City 14 Highway 18 (My first car)
Yamaha RX 135 1997: City 40 Highway 45 (used to drive it almost 100 kms on highway at 80 +)
Yamaha RX 100 1990: City 35 Highway 40 (My college buddy got stolen. I used to take it 100 -120 KPH and it used to hmm)

Cheers!

Well! My one month old Alto Lxi gives 16-17 KM with AC in City. Never went on a long drive and never checked for FE without AC.

My Kinetic Honda Y2K gives 40-45 KM Per Litre.

Infractions: 0/1 (5)
Default 24 ..twenty Four Kmpl!!!

Hi Folks,

This is my latest reading from trip to Sringeri
-- Blr To Sringeri (kms=349/fuel=14.77lt) -- 23.63KMPL
-- From Sringeri to B'lore (kms = 352/fuel=14.51) 24.26 KMPL
[70% Night driving ]
-- 100% B'lore city driving (kms = 351/fuel=23.58) 14.89KMPL

Am kind of surprised since first time am getting above 22. All above is after recent Service+oilchange.

M800 5Speed. Shell normal petrol is giving me excellent results.

Hey guys,

I drive a minimum of 50+ kms in the city everyday and my 1998 OHC gives me a mileage of 12-14 kmpl with the A/C on and about 14-15 with the A/C off.

I used to have a FLAT 15+ kmpl mileage with he A/C in the city before I got a conical filter and intake pipes, without A/C used to be over 16+ :(

Do you guys think this is allright? I don't have a K&N but something called a Power Flow Filter (its like a Short RAM intake) with a wire-mesh filter and rubber intake pipe. Will posting a picture help to solve any problem?
