Default Re: Alto 800 - Unusually high fuel efficiency!

400kms and 22.5 liters gives an FE of around 17-18. That’s not great. 20 plus would be great. 30+ would be unusually high.

17-18 kmpl is okay for an Alto, depending on load & driving style.

I've a feeling your fuel level indicator isn't working and getting stuck at 60%.

The answer is rather simple, Bangalore-Hosur-Krishnagiri stretch is mostly downhill. If you were not stuck behind the truck on the small uphill sections, this would have ensured the FE didn't drop by much. You have mentioned yourself that most of the drive was without AC.

These are the main contributors to the phenomenal FE you have achieved.

To test the theory, if you do a Madras-Bangalore under similar AC conditions, chances are that you won't see more than 19.x or 20.x

Besides the best FE is achieved on short haul highway stretches that you are most familiar with and you would generally take it easy with the knowledge of driving it multiple times.
