I drive the car on express way & I normally drive below 2500 rpm & at a constant speed of 70-78 & 81 -84 . I feel that this is best speed to take good average.
Thank you so much Anupam, you have given me an answer to one of my queries... (that too before i asked them )

Can your expressway driving be classified as "Highway" instead of city.

cause if you call it city in means 'stop, start, idling,frequent gear changes, maybe bumper to bumper' i bet you are not doing all that on the express way are you?

Default MJD vs DDIS vs QuadraJet - On the Road F.E Test. Reply to Thread

My Drive : In terms of time spent on road constitutes 50 % on Highway & 50 % bumper to bumper.But in terms of Distance it is 80 % -20%. i consider the duration as vehicle consumption of fuel has a substantial share of time spent running/idiling.

I think you can make out the answer.If i only consider express highway that average would definately be more than 20.

According to me in Multijet engine would give best average if driven from 60-78 & from 81-84.

Thanks & Regards

Palio MJD - first service done, 1750kms on the odo. Latest refill after 60:40 city:highway run with 50% AC returned 20.34. Also, had a "forced" oil change, car has definately become smoother.

Cheers!

Palio SDX really bad driver.....

Average 14.73 kmpl over 32 litres measured full tank to full tank.

Gear change
1@1200rpm
2@1800 (at least try to)
after that 2K+

Driving purely city idling,most driving on 3rd between 20 and 40 kmph top speed on a couple of km stretch 80-100

Ac 50% (very cold in bangalore these days)

Driven about 50 km + with low tire pressure.
Floored the pedal at times. No rolling while idling in gear.

That's Super!!!! I guess, you are effectively using your RPM meter and the new found way of shifting gears using RPM meter. If my wife does not go in for new car coming Jan/Feb, my upgrade is definitely going to be Vista.

Take care and drive safely
