my mpfi 2001 zenhas done 27000kms till date.
the best Fe that i had got then in 2001 was about 19kpl with and without AC on a mumbai-shirdi drive.
then the best was after u fitted the free flowwhen i got abt 24kpl overall on a mumbai mangalore drive .most of it was without AC .

in city the best i have got is 15-16kpl and that is now after i filled 98 octane.fuel
and the latest best figure on highway was 18kpl ,but thatwas at max speeds and 14.5 hrs for mumbai mangalore.

the worst i have got in city is 8kpl with AC and 13kpl on the mumbai pune expressway with AC

mine is a m800 nov 98 model. done 85000 + kms

initially used to get 14 to 15 km with AC for 1st three years. has been highway driving always. now for last three years getting a constant of 12.5/13 kmpl on highway with AC.

The worst was when i had problem with my AC and the FE dropped down to 8 kmpl. changed the AC but new one had heavy compressor so less FE.

cooling is too good so the compromise is ok.
