and i think 93 octane is discontinued and 97 octane is toooo good for a 800.

I have a mpfi 4 gear m800, I use regular fuel and get around 21 in city with intermittent AC on 1 speed.

Maruti is known for its FE. My esteem 2004 mpfi with k&n used to give me 15kmpl in city and 18 on the highway..

well when it comes to mileage there is not a huge difference between regular fuel and higher octane fuels.... I get maximum a km or two more when i use higher octane fuel in my esteem mpfi...

but worthwhile to note is that knocking reduces significantly and engine is a lot smoother...

however i am thinkin of the option of fillin regular fuel and emptying a bottle of octane booster along with it... will observe if there is any difference in this and post results....

and yeah at some bunks... filling in higher octane may not be actually the fuel you are getting... it may be adulterated... so i always fill in at Shell... and if the shell outlet is too far then i fill in at BP's pure for sure outlets... filling in octane fuels like 97 octane has no use in regular cars as compression ratio needs to be considered...

18 on the highway ? whoa man... did u cruise at times in neutral with the engine off or wot?

i have got a max of 16kmpl on the highway with my K&N OE... speed was an avg of 130 kmph.... i guess it is possible to attain that FE by stayin under 100 kmph and using a light foot on the gas...

i also happen to have an 800 and have never filled any high octane fuels in her... she has an MPFI 4 geared engine under the hood and is a 2003 model... she delivers an avg of 16-18 kmpl in city... i have maintained 90-100kmph on highways and she delivered 21 kmpl....

very happy with her except that roads in blore are so bumpy that i can feel every organ in my body when i am driving the 800.... otherwise it is a pleasure to have the 800... ease of parking, easy of driving etc...
