I use my Thar as the daily drive, here are the numbers
Model - Thar CRDE 4WD 2012 Model
Odometer: 47500 kms
Distance traveled - 450 KM (Himachal interiors to Delhi, mostly downhill in 2WD mode)
Mileage - 12.7 Kmpl
Average speed: 45 kmph (Highway speeds between 85-100, peaks of 120 for short bursts)
Tyres: Continental AT
AC was on for 300 kms
The mileage within the hills (mean elevation between 7000ft - 9000ft) is around 11-12, and when using the 4H mode the average is close to 10.
Any other Thar owners checking in on their average?

My VW Polo 1.2 P, 3.5 years, 23 k done is going strong delivers 15-16 Kpml in the city 40-50 Km per hr average. Checked it over a trip of 600 kms by empty to full tank method.
I drive from Vashi to Kanjur Marg everyday
The best part, highway 19 kmpl on a trip to Nasik and back 320 kms 80-110 km per hour
This trip also included some city driving in traffic.
I had always assumed that the 1.2 petrol cannot go beyond 16 kmpl on the highway and 12 in the city. Very very pleasant numbers indeed.
I believe the 1.6 petrol has similar numbers, anybody with a polo 1.6 or vento petrol would like to share these stats please?
This thread was supposed to give a real life FE of various cars.
But, reading the posts, it seems its a competition to prove how great one's FE is. ..something for the record books!
Anyways, my FE -
Honda Jazz 46K kms, 4+ years old
City FE - 13-14 (moderate traffic). goes down to 10-12 in heavy traffic
Highway FE - 18+ (if driven sedately). 15-16 with spirited driving.
And for the records, I have achieved a FE od 22.1 kmpl in one drive from home to airport. Bu, that was just done for testing out the max I can extract. I don't and can't drive like that and that's not what my real life FE is.

As winter starts to set in here in Northern part of the country, the diesel punch is getting stronger and FE is on the rise.
Reserve to reserve, the Avg fuel consumption from two Rs 1000 fill-outs revealed 22.x and 23.x kmpl in city. Margin of error can be taken as 5%.
Driving style - sedate
Car - Beat tcdi
Odo - 48k kms
In hot summers it struggled to breach the 21 kmpl mark in city.
A 300 km Highway drive could only give a normal 22kmpl, though speeds never went north of 100 kmph. That might be due to the short 5 th cog.
A quick dash to Pune during the weekend gave a bit surprising results. Started from either ends at 7 am in the morning to reach the destination at 9.45 am. The distance travelled was again same 170 kms. The speeds were same 90 on the highways, 70's in the city limits. While going to Pune the average mileage achieved was 21 kmpl whereas while returning back the mileage was 24.3kmpl.
