Wow, Hyderabad petrolheads got a good lead about IBP. Can somebody from Hyderabad give a similar lead ( tested) for diesel as well??

Its 3 months now. and I am driving my Petra a little harder. Often going into the 3000 rpm range and also quite frequently, into the 4000 rpm band. City FE is down to 8.5 at its lowest and 11.5 when I am studiedly frugal. All figures are with 100% AC. On the highway, FE is 15.5 (tested on a single Bombay Daman Bombay drive) again with 100% AC all the while pushing the car to 3000 + rpm's sometimes even touching 5000.
But all this is purely academic and I now care two hoots for FE, such is the character of the car.

Well said & its good to see soemone who takes it as it comes & is not hell-bent on proving that his vehicle is THE most fuel efficient ......as time goes by on this thread, there are more & more posts about mileage figures that are way in excess of that claimed by even the manufacturers!!!

@mobike008, what is the significance of 4K kms ? I did read here that after the initial running-in period of 1000kms, the FE increases a bit. But can't understand the relevance of the 4K km point.

Maybe its the first service interval or first oil/oil filter/fuel filter change? Though normally diesel engines would not have a 4k interval AFAIK......

For the first time I have obtained 11.5 KMPL on IBP Regular in my Petra too. Nope, I have not changed my driving style, the trips are longer now. Got these numbers doing not so sedate driving.

Smile Year-old WagonR

Fuel: HP Speed

City: 13 to 13.5 kmpl (50% AC usage)
Highway: 19.7 kmpl (100% AC usage)

Driving style - sedate, but like to push it on the highways.

I was a little taken aback when checking the highway FE (tankful-auto cutoff method, same bunk), but I have cross-checked it; mighty pleased
