Not sure don't really keep track, it varies a lot in city. Highways I get about 11 or so and in city it varies from 8 - 10. I do a lot of short drives (around 3-4kms) and those eat into FE

Saw your car at MMST last sunday. Looked great, and with those Advans, it was awesome on track too. Wanted to meet you, but couldn't.

Actually, i left before you. Was parked right behind your car, (the R1 and the CBR 600) . Was there from morning, for the bike session, but came to know later that timings were changed to alternate hours for bikes and cars. Its extremely annoying to suit up for one hour, get out of it for another, and back in for the next round! God fed up and left!

54kms done, One of the Neovas developed a bulge along the outer side (Pic attached) after the last track day. Thankfully I had a spare Neova to replace it with.

Was looking to get one new tyre of another make to use as a spare tyre but then decided to save the Neovas (whatever 5-10k life thats left in them) for highway trips and trackdays and picked up a set of 5 Hankook Ventus H424 at 4.1k.

Hope govt. relaxes the ISI standards or something and we get some decent premium tyres in the near future :(

Will post impressions of the tyres shortly

Just a quick note on the Hankooks, haven't done a lot of driving recently about 1k since I got them but am quite happy. They are really comfort and with the recent heavy rains most of the roads are in shambles and these tyres soak up the bad surfaces really well. Dry grip is ok so far, wet grip is very good.
