Overall fuel efficiency - 10.8 km/l.



Comfort mode - Gives 1 km/l less than the Ecopro. No hard accelerations.



Petrol used: Speed 97.

Thanks. That's really good efficiency to be honest. My diesel GT gives a trace less in heavy traffic on diesel. Is 97 a must or are you just using that by choice? Can you use regular petrol too?

Personally the ability to use regular fuel instead of high speed is a preference in my books because it gives you full peace of mind while touring. Unless of course you're doing this purely by choice and mixing it up if going out of town has no downside.

It is not a must. Dealer told me to use regular 91 RON. For the first tank I used it and had no issues with engine, it ran quite well. I got around 7.5 kmpl in ecopro mode. Then I changed to Speed 97 for 2nd tank. The efficiency increased to around 10.8 kmpl (ecopro). I drove all in comfort mode in last tank, the efficiency was 9.8 kmpl. So I decided to continue with Speed 97.

Please update with your fuel efficiency results for speed 97.

I calculated my fuel cost as follows:

Ecopro: 55 liters gave me 55*7.4 (km/l) = 407 kms for Rs. 3536 (1 lit @ Rs. 64.29)
Ecopro: For 407 kms, I need 37.7 lit (ave. 10.8 km/l), for Rs. 3202 (1 lit @ 84.95).
Comfort: For 407 kms, I need 41.53 lit (ave. 9.8 km/l), for Rs. 3528 (1 lit @ 84.95).

Overall, speed 97 is good for the engine and we save money on fuel.
