10 month old Maruti Vitara Brezza ZDi with 10,000 km on odo. Drive from Pune to Ratnagiri and back - total of 730 km over three days. Average returned 21.6 km/litre. About Half the distance is on 4 lane highway of NH4 at about 80-100 kmph and the remaining on divided highways between 60-70 kmph. Climbed up and down Katraj, Khambatki and Amba Ghat but that effect should be nullified in a round trip. MID indicated exactly that much.

Sorry to disillusion you. I drive almost the same car (a 2014 Dzire VXi), and the MID readings are approximately 25% more than the actual figures. So, the actual FE for your 100 km trip is approximately 19.5 km/l.

Have been running my 2006 indica xeta (63000 odo) regularly again recently. On the tank full method have been getting between 11.4 to 12.2 km/ltr. This is in Goa, ac on 75% on the time (variable basis of weather, might explain part of the variation). Car mostly does inter city school run for my boys.

With my dad behind the wheel, the city milage drops to 10.5 to 11 kmpl and highway milage drops to 14.5-15 kmpl
Cool! Those are respectable numbers given the weight of the car. I know Indica Xeta owners who were very happy with the engine, now the Revotron is keeping up. Tata really can be considered very competent in both fuel types

I drive Tata Vista Quadrajet - 2010 model. I've been maintaining fuel refills' record on aCar android app, tank-to-tank full calculation.
The following are the summary of stats under various driving conditions,

Total Kms covered so far : 1,05,580

City / Urban mileage : 14-16 kmpl (with always AC switched on)

Highway mileage : 19-23 kmpl (with AC switched on always)

Overall Average mileage : 16 kmpl

Worst - 11 kmpl
Best - 23 kmpl

These are the figures put together for the entire ownership period across the cities Chennai (50%), Hyderabad (30%) & Bangalore (20%) with heavy foot / agile style of driving.

Ford Aspire TDCi
Running with HP Normal diesel.
100% A/C and 100% Kolkata City drive under mix of peak hour and afternoon non pick hour traffic (70%-30%).
Always 3 person minimum on board.
Trip meter 457 kms oddo is 3333.

MID is pretty accurate when comparing with Tank full to Tank full. Often the difference is less than 0.1/0.2.

Completed a round trip of 470 km with four on board & with half boot luggage. Got an actual FE of 19 kmpl, tank full method. Driving style - slow acceleration but if road permits , I drive at 110-120 kmph.
My car- 2011 1.6 CRDI Fluidic Verna, done 77 k so far. Quite happy with highway FE. But city FE is around 14 @ Bhubaneswar. My friends with 1.3 Scross get around 18 kmpl under similar driving conditions, quite a difference.
