Thats where in each car is said to have a mind of its own. I remember as a kid, there was a Red Peugeot 504 (luckily that always used to stay allotted to Dad) which was old but surprisingly quicker than other 2000cc 504's for no apparent reason. We used to call it the Red Bullet. The speed was in its paint! But then it can be attributed to running in procedures.

I have a petra 1.6 and I have once got around 15kmpl on long drive with reliance fuel. Never got that again even with the same fuel and same conditions.

In city I always get 9-10 kmpl depending upon traffic conditions and on Highways I get around 13.5 kmpl with any fuel I use( mostly I use HP regular).
Note : My car gave 7-8 kmpl till first free service( 1000km) and I am not light footed and likes pressing the gas pedal on signals, If I am on front row.

my lancer consistently strecthes to 13 minimum in city with a/c on. usual monthly FE figure show around 15-17 with highways and city runs.

If my dad drives the number increases by one kM more. Even if I try to do everything with a light foot.

That's the story of different figures in a same car. heheh.

But then he also strecthed the WagonR to 32kmpl in the mileedge challenge which was 50% city ad 50% highway wit ac off. I would be lucky to reach even half that figure.

My dad's OHC gives 15+ consistently. On one blr run it returned 19kmpl with AC. The car was driven for the first 1L kms mostly by our driver who would max at 3000 rpm. So it could pbly be the way it was run in. On the other hand my GTX used to give 9kmpl with a light foot both inside the city and on the highway.

1.5 exi or 1.3..?
even for a 1.3 - the mileage u quote is very very good...

and for a driver driven car its all the more good...

19kmpl seems a bit of a stretch- but u never know - thats the whole point of thsi thread

Lets say, In my Ford Ikon, I don't get more than 9 kmpl in city. If I reset the ECU and drive normally and carefully, are there chances of the car giving mileage like the Ikon's that give 11+?

Or when the car goes for overhaul, the mileage has chances of being recovered by PROPER run-in?

BUMP!!

I want to know the answer for this earlier post of mine, please!

[quote=vid6639;511830]
Also my Alto gives miserable mileage of 12.5kmpl in city with AC 100%. I don't use it on highways. I have been hearing city mileage of 14-15kmpl but no matter how light footed i drive the highest i got was 12.9kmpl. /quote]

My alto also gives me around 12 to12.5 with AC 100%. I have heard of people saying they get 14-15 kmpl. Maybe its without the AC. I doubt if that figure can be achieved with AC on all the time. My wife's baleno does around 9kms per litre irrespective of who drives it.

Also it depends on city where the car is driven, Eg I get a Bangalore city mileage of 12 - 13 Kms with AC in my Accent CRDi while I get 17 kms in Calicut. Hence the genric term "city mileage" always depend on the city. Of course it depends on the driving pattern too.

Vid6639's lancer petrol gives 8 kmpl(previously 10+) while Elf's lancer petrol gives 6.5 kmpl.
Some Fiat 1.6s are reported to give 6kmpl while a few of our members get over 10+.
Figures mentioned above are in city with AC (~75% of the time).
Considering that all the cars don't have major mods and a heavy foot,
Why does this strange phenomenon exist??
it's all dependent on driving styles, when my driver drives our Petrol lancer it gives an avg to 6-7
my bro drives it 8-9
I drive it it averages 11-11.5 with ac

Haha... what rubbish! At least if it'd been a diesel engine then the figure would have had possibly a one in a million chance of being believable!
