Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

I use Drivvo to monitor all my vehicles. Very neat and user-friendly app. And my daily commute from Noida to Greater Noida is 80% highway driving. Hence i get to see fantastic FE figures.

last time around, my Baleno 1.2 happily managed actual FE (measured by Drivvo through tankful to tankful method) of 20.05 KMPL! MID was showing 21.3 equating to just 1.2 kmpl error in MID.
the wife's Nano has seen probably one of the highest possible recorded on TBHP of 26.1 KMPL with the MID showing 27.5 (with me at the wheel.)

I am definitely an 'Eco mode' driver and subconsciously keep throttle feather light but do on rare occasions let all the ponies out of the stable.

Cheers.

I completed 1600 kms on the Verna (900 on the highway and 700 in bumper to bumper BLR traffic) and it shows 15.9 kpl for these 1600 kms.

I have completed 30K kms in my diesel Tiago. I get around 16-17 kmpl with moderate to heavy traffic in the city. In highways, depending on the speed and driving style, it varies from 19-25 kmpl. The best I have achieved was 27.3 kmpl.

This is the latest tankfull from my Abarth Punto. Except for the last 65 odd km or so, all were on the highways. The last 65 km took me 4+ hrs on the congested Mumbai streets. Got an FE of 21.38 km/l. This is not the highest figure, but it is more the exception than the norm. Usually I'm happy to get 14-15 on the highways and 10-12 in the city.

PS- Forgot to take a pic of the mid FE figure, but it was around 19.xx km/l!

City / Ciaz, if driven sedately. There are not much options in this bracket which gives "very very good highway mileage".

On a recent highway trip (Delhi - Jaipur), my 2014 Verna Petrol Automatic gave me 15.5 kmpl, which is the best figure I've gotten so far. And I wouldn't call it sedate driving, I pressed the accelerator hard a few times. In my daily commute to office in moderate to heavy traffic, I get 11- 12, whereas in bumper to bumper traffic I get 9 - 10 kmpl.

My Crysta Automatic is giving me 10-11kmpl in Navi Mumbai. I am driving with an ultra light foot in eco mode.This car is so powerful that even with a light foot and eco mode it can easily keep up with traffic on the brisk palm beach road.

Default Re: What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?

Took delivery of Ignis Delta AMT Petrol few days back. I drive sedately during the initial run-in period. I had reset the average fuel economy figure manually yesterday morning and embarked on a 20 km ride which included 50% highway & 50% city driving (was NOT bumper to bumper). I had noticed that the average fuel economy figure was rising steadily. It went over 24 km/liter when I parked in the morning.

While returning back in the afternoon, the average fuel economy figure kept rising. These numbers were unbelievable so kept the mobile ready, and when it hit 26 kmpl I stopped on one side and clicked this picture.

The ARAI certified FE for Ignis Petrol is less than 21. So this 26 figure can't be true. However it did put a smile on my face

What do you make of it? Could it be that the system is still calibrating since it is a new car?

Highways (2-lane): 11.x to 13.x depending on traffic, speeds and terrain driven

For a petrol, City CVT and Vento TSI should give good FE if driven well. Honda petrols deliver when hypermiled. Hyundai in general is not known for FE (you already should know since you own one). At best you are looking at a 15-17 kpl figure, which is very good for a petrol.
