I didnt get the question? I mean simple way is-
Note down Odometer reading (lets call it odo1)after tank-full,
note down odometer reading (odo2) at next fuel stop - fill the tank to the top.
The difference (odo2-odo1) / (litres filled at fuel stop 2) = FE
Just keep in mind your routes and traffic condition

You can keep a notebook with following column heads
Date / Odo reading/ km traveled / liters filled/ average
Record the readings at all fuel stops - rest is pure arithmetic - helps you notice any change post servicing etc.

After I changed from the stock 13"ers to 205/55/15 on my Lancer, the FE has taken a minor hit. I now get around 9.5-10 kmpl (50% with AC and 50% without AC). The highway FE is anywhere between 14-15 (100% AC).

Ford Ikon (Dad drives it now) returns 11 kpl in the city and 16 kpl on the highway.

@wanderlust, hope you considered the change in odo readings due to rim upsize. Typically, your FE should improve if you increase the diameter of the wheel (provided that your shoes do not grow much broader). It would be at the cost of reduced low end grunt

@Jeep, the stock tires were 175 section, the new Yokos are 205 section. Thats a considerable increase. You are right, the low-end grunt is affected.

One of threads here mentioned that Govt is planning to increase petrol price by Rs 5. Thought I will fill before that happens. Usually between fills there will be a highway drive. But this time it was only city:
Brand: IOC Normal
AC: 100%
City: 100%
Distance: 390.5
Quantity: 30.15
FE: 12.95

Not bad since I travel from South B'lore to Central B'lore & back daily - hardly get a chance to shift to 4th, or hit 50.

Method: Full tank to Full tank - auto cutoff
Tyre pressure check every Saturday same fuel pump.
