Hey guys,

I did Bangalore-Mumbai-Bangalore this weekend. The below-mentioned instructions from VJ_MAVRICK were really helpful, I took a printout of it and programmed the route into my GPS on the basis of the waypoints. My thanks to VJ, HVKUMAR & AKROY for their valuable insights on this particular route.

I started from here at 3 a.m. on the 9th and reached by bro's house in Sanpada by 6.20 p.m (15 hours). I was driving my Bolero VLX and maintained a steady speed of 80-90 kmph. No breaks except nature's calls. Didn't use the A.C. much hence I got a mileage of 14.6 kmpl. Tolls paid came to around Rs.618. Though I was alone on the onward journey, my bro and his wife accompanied me on the way back yesterday.
