I saw this on CNBC - Car and Bike Show. They tested this on ORDE, Ahmadnagar. They had also roped in KPMG for authenticity.

They have many drivers, each driver drove for 4 hours, when the drivers chnaged, car was kept running. More than the FE, I was amazed that the car kept on running for 66 hours.

Cheers

Do they fill fuel from the same kind of pumps we use day to day ? We know it can make a lot of difference.

Is it not like talk time and stand by time for cell phones ?

Forgot to add

In day to day life the number of starts also matter apart from non ideal constant speed conditions, I have at least two cold starts every day and FE is measured for 30+ cold starts assuming I fill fuel every fortnight. I get around 10-11 KMPL over a fortnight. Differences compared to ideal track conditions being

1. number of cold starts (30)
2. idling at signals (5 hrs/ 15 days)

Is it not like talk time and stand by time for cell phones ?

Actually it will be quite a good thing if similar test conditions are used, devoid of the uncontrollable factors, to find the FE readings of each car. Then use it to compare data.

They anyway have to run these validation test during vehicle certification.

We have the FE readings reported by magazines which are very person/situation dependent and sometimes not very consistent.

There are a few automobile industry insiders who know this certification process, maybe they can share some information about the process.

This data may not be fake or madeup. What is the use of this FE figure when the real conditions are entirely different. They may not be good even for a comparison since weight, acceleration, gearing, .. come in to picture in real world situation.

Let us say in standard test track car1 returns 30 KMPL and car2 returne 35 KMPL, does it mean car2 will always return better FE even in real world situations ? I am not sure, can Guru's comment on it.

Well,
It kept the whole OD team feeling that they were doing a great thing and gainfully employed for a long period of time. Desperation on part of Auto Mags to fill pages after they have devoted close to 50% space to Ads. Who the hell would like to drive a car without AC in this kind of climate. Maybe that kind of peson will be better off riding a 100 cc four stroke bike and feeling happy about all the money he has saved.

OD is no more part of Tata Donnelly group. They sold to ICICI venture one long time back. The group is called Infomedia now.

We should all understand that these tests were done under "standard test conditions" which will never be replicated in normal driving conditions. For example removing the spare wheel, reducing tyre pressure, maybe even removing the seats, and other heavy stuff. This would be mentioned somewhere in the ad that Logan releases, of course it will be so tiny that no one can read it (or no one should read it).

Heard the quick mutual fund ad disclaimer......Mutual funds are subjeect,..........to market blah blah blah........

Mutual Funds are subject to market risks, read the offer document carefully investing

I never said its fake but its in a condition which no one faces in day to day driving ie figures are not practically acheivable, PERIOD.

Do not trust the onboard computer. Its just a gimmick. Who adds the values in there? The manufacturer..... Do a tank to tank and update us.
