How about licensing your technique/technology to the others so that they can avail good FE?

But seriously guys, I was looking at some of the Palios and Petras (petrol) and the FE is really decent and comprable to Corsas, Accents etc. Wonder how it got the reputation of a gas guzzler.

hey y'all...

i do the top up to top up...and the automatic stop on the fuel pumps are the best way to calculate...theres always a litre or so more that can be squeezed in.....

alto Lx - city with a/c - 12Kmpl
- city without a/c - 14kmpl
Indica DLS - cith w/ a/c - 14kmpl
- city w/o a/c - 16kmpl
Palio 1.2 - city w/ac - 11kmpl (no without a/c figures as dad drives itand he cant take madras heat!!)

doeas K&n airfilter do anythin for mileage?.. thinkin bout it it for my alto... also anyone got any mileage increase with IOC premium or BP speed?

My Santro 1.0 gives 15 kmpl in city conditions. But then, a lot of its time is spent on the Ring Road. Also, a very light throttle foot. Baleno is somewhere around 12-13, but never checked.

All figures without A/C on.

Car - Baleno
with the AC on all the bloody time!

In City Figs -
Avg, 8.75 ,
(But i tend do do short runs in high traffic areas most of the time)
Best - 10.0
Worst - bad traffic & Lead foot, 8.0

Highway - with the AC (again)
13.5, doing a decent clip

I wish my city mileage was better, but it cant be helped.

My Palio NV gives following figures....

City : 14-15 AC-25%. Also consider the fact that I live near Wakad i.e. outskirts of Pune. So bumper to Bumper traffic % is 20 % only. Usually drives in 3rd or 4th gear.

Highway : 17-18 A/C 50%

Couple of my friends bought Palio NV with me. They too have similar figures. I dont know why people say that Palio gives low milage.

My Palio 1.2ELX (2001 Dec) kmpl in highway..& in slow traffic it gives 11-13kmpl always with AC ON.

My oldie FIAT 1100D gives 10-11 kmpl in Slow & a max 14kmpl in Highway.

Atleast by this thread let all know that Palio has decent mileage..coupled other lots of goodies. Its a better VFM package anyday.
