Long term update:
  • KMs: 14k
  • Time: 17 months
I have an update about the FE figure I stated earlier in January.
A brake-jam on the left rear wheel was identified and solved recently, which has brought the FE back to the 14-15 kmpl range.
It seems that this brake-jam caused the drop in FE to the 12-13 range.

So, the effect of the wider tyres on the FE now seems to be in the ~1 kmpl range. Which is totally a good thing
