15 km or in stop go traffic for about 30 mins
70 km or in city with smooth traffic + rough traffic + long idles.

AND on top of all, car given for service after this.

100% a/c was used.

The numbers are fabulous, sounds like you have a great car that gives both josh and FE. Given your speeds from 120 KMPH to 160 KMPH and A/C was on, this has got to be an awsome piece.

The Worst I got was a 9 ( Revved High That time - All Throughout , because i was checking the worst fuel efficinecy


In My OHC VTEC , I usually get 9-10 In the City and 12 on the Highway!

Hi,this is my debut post on team bhp.
My 2003 santro xing gives 15km/l in city with ac on 60% of the time.
And on the highway,surprisingly there is not much improvement 16km/l with 50% ac.

New Wagon R Lxi..< 6 months with an app usage of <10 kms every day between home and office in normal traffic conditions..100% AC on..a bit erratic as far as speed is concerned.

Gives me only 11 kmpl..completed only close to 4000 kms..what do you reckon?

getting 10.5kmpl with a/c on in city driving. FE seems to have dropped by 1 to 1.5 kmpl. I suspect the timing needs to be retarded a bit. Btw, my ride is an esteem mpfi. Got a K&N OE air filter, and a 4x1 race spec header with a SS end can.
