Her are my figures on my 2006 MPFI 800-
13-14 kmpl with a really heavy foot and redlining a lot of times, with 20 kms everyday driven in Bangalore peak hour traffic conditions.

19.5 kmph with four passengers and loaded with lluggage at constant speeds of above 90kmph.
With a speed of between 60 and 70 kmph, I have got more than 23-24 consistently!

My wife's new Chevvy Spark LS with 1600 km on the ODO (and one service down) gives 17.5 kmpl consistently in city with air-con on at all time. We're very pleased with it as a city car.

MM540DP with an Isuzu 2.2l NA IDI Diesel + 5 speed GB.
~13.5km/l in city (Pune)
~15km/l on highways

That is with fuel spilling out of the filler during hard cornering.
