My 2003 Lexus ES300 -
City - 19 MPG (8.075 KM/L)
Freeway - 28.7 MPG (12.2 KM/L)
Both figures are from the onboard computer. A/C is always on. Not bad, eh?

BTW, A useful conversion 1 MPG = 0.425 KM/L

Well not to doubt you lads outright,
But a lot of palio figures here are quite amazing i must say.
A few friends of minr have Palios and lets say none of them are thrilled to bits over the
mileage really. They like the car otherwise,
But not one of my friends is reporting any figs over 9 in Bombay with AC.

According to fiat the Palio 1.2 gives 11 in city and 13 on highway wheras the 1.6 gives 8-9 in City and 10-11 on highway..

But the figures here show otherwise.. i guess its fiat who is playing with the figures themselves

My ACCENT GLX gives me about 7km - 7.7km with the A/C always on and good use of the pedal. However on the highway again with A/C on I get about 13.45 to 14km driving anything above 90kmph+.

Wish it would give more mileage in town though. Other wise the only complaint are the brakes are horrible, worst brakes in any car.

I agree in a test by OD in 2000 i guess the Accent brakes were rated second worst only to an Esteem..

M800 -
Maximum that I have got - 21.00 on my first pune trip. I drove consistantly at 65 kmph.
Minimum - Strange though but it was around 13 kmpl. 5 Persons, Luggage and A/C on. Still thats a bit low. On an average I get around 16.00 kmpl. City and highway combined. .

Default FE for Santro AT

Anyone has a Santro AT and know what it's FE is like with AC on for most of the time, say 80%+ of the time.

OR we can have a special thread on how to get the most mileage out of your car. Like we have a thread on turbicharging. Right?

AJO.
