My 2002 5 speed mpfi 800 DX returns 14.5 to 16.5 kmpl, more during rest of the year and less during the monsoons when the roads are terrible, with AC.
On highways, without AC its even returned over 20kmpl. I do not have highway AC numbers since I prefer to drive with the wind (and dust) in my hair (whatever remains of it) when the air does not smell smoky.

I spend more on gas than cigarettes...

My Lancer needs a damn petrol pump attatched to it - am seriously thinking of buying a full-size tanker to follow me around for in-car refuelling whilst driving.

City mileage: 6 - 6.5kmpl.
Mostly with the aircon on, unless I'm enjoying my periodic nicotine intake.

Highway: Well, took it outta town only once, on the infamous T-BHP drive, so got a superb mileage of 7.25 for the entire trip, & almost ran dry before I hit the pump!

My Alto 1.1 is around 9ish, only city driving.

Wifey's Alto 800cc is superb. 5 times a week she drives down to the airport, one way in full traffic. She fills up 500 bucks of fuel a week! @#$%@#$@! Think she gets 250 kmpl!

elf, I think it has quite a lot to do with the difference in driving style - women tend to drive more sanely. Ofcourse, I am not ruling out some issues with the Lancer and Alto1.1, which contribute to such a pathetic FE.

My suggestion : Ask your wife to use the Alto1.1 for a week and check how much petrol she uses up compared to her 800cc Alto. Unless there is something wrong with the car, the FE figures should be more or less the same (might be marginally lesser on the Alto1.1, due to the 300cc difference).

9-11 km/lt in city with ac
13-15 km/lt on highways
actually I went to chennai 3 days ago, I think I got higher than 18 km/lt between hosur and sriperumbudur, average speed was approx 100km/hr on this stretch, I cannot quote exact figures for this stretch alone but from experience and indication of fuel guage, I think I got that kind of efficiency. overall efficiency of that trip was 14km/lt which included bad bangalore city traffic and a day of even worse chennai madness.
One more think i'd like to add here is, I have noticed people claiming that their car's fuel tanks take in about a litre or so of fuel after cutoff, well in my optra's case, it takes in anywhere between 10-10.6 litres of fuel after cutoff, this I am posting after waiting for a long time to check and recheck everytime i fill up to the brim in different fuel stations both in and outside bangalore and at varying times of the day from early morning to noon to evening.This I am saying after at least 30 tank fulls in my 6 month old car. The figure is always 10 to 10.6 lts after autocutoff.

SANTRO 13-16kms/lt in peak hour traffic
18-20 on long drives
