Is it possible that the daily drive is low like 1-5 KMS total ?

M800 gave around (147 Kms/6.39 lts) = 23.01 Kms/Ltr yesterday on Blr to Mys trip with Shell(normal) petrol. This was achieved on speeds hovering around 70 to 100 kmh. Shell does make a difference as i usually never got anything more that ~18 before on similar trips.

Default My Cars FE

My Santro Zip Plus has been steadily giving me 12 ~ 12.5 kmpl in the city with AC on about 50% ~ 70% of the time and 18 ~ 19 kmpl during Highway trips.... But a recent trip to Kerala, Tamilnadu and Karnataka changed all that (highway figures i.e) to 14.5 ~ 15 kmpl

hiya mate,

well, i have never gone thru the functions in detail of the Octavia, so dont know of it, jus driver it a few times and thats it.

But i am reckon that should definately be possible, jus check the manual, or that button which changes the display, press that for a few seconds and go into the SETUP, and maybe there u will find an option to change the setting.

hope it helps!
