You mean there are a lot of trucks on this road or that these trucks are not covered?

My Palio's FE was 16 kmpl on the NH 4(Mumbai Bangalore highway).
It was 14.5 to 15 on NH 17.

Both the figures are without any A/C

I started from Hubli at around 7.30 am & reached Pune by 1.30 pm. This means 6 hours including a 20 min break for breakfast.

Lots of overloaded mining trucks that destroy the road surface in a short period of time. Looks like Yellapur stretch has been repaired recently.

You mean you don't use a child seat in the car? That's is a must buy, carrying babies in arms in long drives is very dangerous. Just like adults should wear seat belts, the infants should be in child seat. It is less taxing to them as well as the parents. My son sleeps off very fast once put into the child seat. In some countries it is the law, you can't carry babies in arms/lap in the car. I do it only for very short distance, say within 2-3 Kms.
I had a child seat but my son outgrew by the time we managed to go on this trip. The child seat was bought a few months back.
I plan to get another child seat before I go out for the next trip.
