Ask your friend not to push the car like this during the initial period. Else you will never need to compare scientifically like this in future.

there might be some +ve offset but the calibration is pretty accurate because the car can measure distance (with stock tires) and fuel consumption pretty accurately. and it is truly representative of driving style, fuel quality and traffic conditions. and i think the offset would be at max +1 KMPL.
