Hi All,

I did Delhi-Jaipur-Delhi this weekend and got an average of 12.8 including the 60km driven in the Jaipur city bumper to bumper doing shopping and uphill to Amber and JaiGarh visiting the forts. I've calculated from full tank to full tank and the average came through because all along, we drove 90-100, as you can see in the pic attached . I was wondering if there are any after-market plugs available for accord from ngk ? Please let me know if anyone's aware about them.

Thanks All !

Dude, why do you want to change your spark plugs? Changing them without major mods to the rest of the engine is pointless.

I changed from Mico/Champion to NGK in Baleno and results have been amazing ! It actually gives me a better in-city average of 13.5 with A/C and upto 15 without A/C with my driving habbits. Earlier, it used to be 10/11 and not to mention the change in pickup with these new plugs. So i've felt the change with my Baleno and hence, looking forward for same with Accord if possible though

Well i love driving it light and it just gave me another reason to smile , We went on a family trip to Manali and took both Accord and Baleno along and the average we got for the whole trip was 11.90 and 14.70 respectively . When we topped up tanks at chandigarh , the average was 13.80 and 17.80 for Accord and Baleno respectively. We did not cross 100 all through the trip and it was 90 at the most on clear roads though my drivers felt bad that i was'nt letting them go loose with speed but well, i have reasons to smile at the end of the day .

Smile Account Average : Delhi-Ludhiana-Dalhousie-Delhi

Ok guys we talked about this before too about the average of accord. My Honda Accord has been surprising me with the average figures which sometimes go as low as 8 in city driving but never has it surprised me more than the average it gave me on this delhi-ludhiana-dalhousie-delhi trip.

I calculated the average on 3 separate tank tops in this trip and while the worst was of 10.5 for Pathankot to Dalhousie , i got very neat average between Pathankot to Rajpura ,290 KM in 23 Litres !!!! (Not to forget i did some city driving in ludhiana too with bumper to bumper traffic). Also, the pump i got tank top at Pathankot, i suspect it big time of some mess in the amount as they were those old machines and i guess +/- few litres must be there for sure. So officially its about 12.5+ and calculating the messup which might be done by the petrol pump at pathankot, i guess its about 13+ that i got there

My best average was between Rajpura to Delhi where i got a neat 13.8 average !

My driving style all through this trip was between 90-110 and in no gear did i pass 2500 RPM, all through it was between 1500-2500 .

Way to go Honda !

Very impressive mileage figures Delhi2009.

Its not a apt comparison, but I drive a 2006, 3.0 V6 Accord, and get between 5.5 and 6.8, assuming a mix of stop and go, bumper to bumper traffic, and some regular driving with moving traffic. On the highway, even with a heavy foot I've gotten around 10.5 kmpl or so.

Winter ambient temperatures are responsible for the lovely fuel efficiency. The engine is simply running more efficiently. Whatever you gain now, you will lose in summer, all other factors remaning equal.

I'm not surprised. At those speeds, 13 on the highway from a 2.4l engine seems normal. Even in the Kizashi, as long as speeds are capped below 140 on the highway, it returns anywhere between 13-14 kmpl. I even achieve 11-12 in the city with moving traffic and around 10 if there are a lot of jams but with cars like these, it is difficult to restrain your right foot. They're Japanese and love to be revved and sound brilliant past 4k rpm infact one of the properties of your Honda's Vtec engine is its free revving nature.
So I must admit that those figures, I achieve while making a conscious effort; watching the instant fuel consumption bar and holding off pressure on the pedal :P
