Your Lancer couldn't possibly be consuming that much fuel at 39 km/hr, now would it?

Nope. At 39km/h, it gives about 6 km/l.

I was talking about highway cruising speeds in the region of 12-16 km/h.

By the way, the 4th cylinder's working now, so I can blaze upto a crazy max speed of 43 km/h, but don't have the cojones to go that fast - I'm a family man now, & I gave up the drags a coupla years ago.

OT, Elf your FE is really bad. My Lancer used to give 10.5 in city with A/C. Highway was closer to 13.

But I agree, 550 kms is a bit much...almost Bombay-Goa

A Goa quickie would be 650km 1 way, 1300km minimum return.

If we're doing 1300km, then why not do Bombay-Chandigarh.
Hang around for a couple of weeks & come back.
That would be 1300km 1 way, 2600km minimum return.

If we're doing 2600km, then why not do Bombay-Kabul.
Hang around for a couple of months & come back.
That would be 2600km 1 way, 5200km minimum return.

If we're doing 5200km, then why not do Bombay-Istanbul.
Hang around for a couple of years & come back.
That would be 5200km 1 way, 10,400km minimum return...

Should I go on, or drive to Lavasa, hang around for a couple of hours & return...?

about 160, maybe a little more. But that will be inconvenient for the pune members.

you'd be doing 2600km whether you go to Chandigarh or Kabul - maybe even lesser to Kabul as theres no guarantee that you'll even get close, forget coming back.

@Boom: Am truly hurt that you feel that way. Shall arrange to have you deleted.

@danlalanlalingalingaling: A Daman drive would be 170km 1 way, 340km minimum return. If we're doing 340km, then why not do Bombay-...

@Shrivz, Technocrat, other Pune porgaas: Any of you guys coming for the Bombay meet, then going for the Lavasa drive also? That's gonna be a lot of driving for some of you! I say just come for the Bombay meet, drink yourselves silly, then figure out a way to get home the next day or something...
