What is your best Mileage?

@chaitanya, Iginis is petrol or diesel?
[mention=1]gowtham[/mention], can't believe the mileage you guys achieving​.

What is the regular mileage, if we cruise at 120km/hr?
[mention=488]saran[/mention], Very high variations in civic mileage.

Civic always had a bad word of mouth for poor mileage.



Actually not... civic has good side of mileage... i achieved that mileage with stock tyre 195R15 and with no passengers. Otherwise its not possible to get 18kmpl.

Regular mileage for 120kmph avg cruising is 12 to 14 kmpl. Coz till 120kmph, ur rpm stands at 4k close to. Above that, ivtech kicks at 5400 rpm and it starts drinking for its hunger.

My Hyundai Creta 1.6 CRDi gives me an average mileage of 18 - 19 kmpl on the highways and 14 - 15 kmpl with in the city limits..

Also, My Chevrolet Beat Diesel gives me an average mileage of 22 - 23 kmpl on the highways and 19 kmpl with in the city limits... 

 

Note: The mileage is calculated based on the drive between a full tank to full tank.

My Grand i10, 1.2 petrol, gives an avg of 15-16 in a litre, in moderate traffic with AC on 70%. While on highway, it returns 19-20, with 100% AC on, and cruising at around 4.5K- 6K RPM(i.e. 120 - 160 km/h. Highest till date is 168 km/H).

I use C pedal very rarely, I always try to judge the overall speed of traffic in every section of road, and maintain that speed to avoid frequent gear changing and be in a perfect revv range. It won't affect your gearbox while you can get good mileage fig.

I have used a Honda city diesel for a week, with in the city.
Drove around 300 kilometers and fuel meter is above half mark. :o
Shocked by the fuel efficiency.

Hey @ramuc, though mileage is a factor depends upon the engine, but there are several other but crucial factors affect mileage, mainly all are connected to driving style. I am not telling whether thats right or wrong, but driving style affects vastly on mileage. 2nd is maintenance of the car. 3rd may be the usage of AC etc.

 

For eg.: I always keep open my windows for a 5-10 min after ignition to get some fresh air in cabin, then put on the AC, it not only ensures better cooling but also helps to improve mileage. Another thing I do is switching off the engine if red signal is showing more than 45 sec countdown. Apart from that, in a B2B traffic I generally switch off AC unless it is really unbearable to be inside the cabin. Also I avoid sudden speeding & breaking the car during my drive in city, rather I go comfortably to avoid C pedal as maximum as possible & no harm to engine or gearbox.

 

Though on highway I usually cant control myself to not to go beyond 4.5-5K RPM especially on ORR(after airport) or Hyderabad-Bangalore highway, which indeed affects mileage very much :P  . Still managed to get around 19Km/Litre.

 

Any idea from other fellow members please share.

 

Cheers!!

Thanks @sagar. :)

 

Yes I always try to be gentle with her. I always try not to abuse her. Because, they say "if you treat your car like a queen, she will treat you like a king!!!"

Infact I feel very bad even when somebody abuses his/her own car as well.. !!

 

But @sagar, no offence. Kerb weight of Grand i10 is 935Kg(petrol) as compare to its main rival swift which stands at 965kg(petrol). May be you are correct, kerb weight of other Maruti Cars are much lesser which are known for its mileage.

After driving for almost 40,000 km in my Marcus (Maruti Suzuki Swift VXI) the average fuel efficiency is 16kmpl. Best i got 21kmpl.

Average is very high.
I thought it will be around 12/14 kmpl.
Can you share the split of city and highway driving?

Ok, I did back to back two long drives @Octavia RS

1. Hyderabad to Vijayawada - round trip - 16.2 kmpl

2. Hyderabad to Srisailam - round trip - 13.4 kmpl

I was indeed shocked to see the efficiency of this engine. Still costs a bomb comparing to diesel fuel cost :P

I was making all street noise while overtaking but the fuel efficiency and power is just amazing.

I drive a Swift VXI  2011 upgraded model. Usually get 16-17 KMPL in city limits with moderate traffic and Intermittent AC usage.

Heavy Traffic and in Summer, it drops down to 12-14KMPL.

The car is quite well maintained with periodic maintenance schedule and servicing on time.

All 4  Stock Tyres  165/80 R14 with 33 PSI.

On the Highway runs, it goes upto 21-23 KMPL. ( 4 lane/6 lane ). Most often,  HYD-BANG.

 

I drive sedately, maintaining a cruising speed of 80-90kmph, occasionally touching 100, but that's that.

All the above mileage figures are based upon MID Output.

Driving style, number of passengers, AC usage, terrain, type of fuel matters alot in that order. Always prefer COCO Outlets.

Very much impressed with the figures @nitin88. Surprising to see the carmakers are responding to consumer demands for more efficient cars unlike being too stringent towards the government fuel-economy standards.

Hi everyone,

I got back to Hyderabad from Bangalore and have recently checked the mileage of my Rapid TDi. It was about 95% a highway drive and the mileage shown was just nuts. It gave me about 24 kmpl.

I've NEVER gotten this good of mileage before and it has me wondering what state of tune my car is in and I hope I'm not running too lean :D

Buddy, you are killing your engine.

Diesel engines are supposed to run at higher rpm otherwise they will suffer in the longer run.

 

I have seen multiple Polo quoting similar figure running in lower RPM in 5 the gear in other forums. That will leave diesel particulates get accumulated.

My Engine never run low bro, it was coincidental picture on the ORR while I was turning my car if you can see the indicator turned on :P I was just quoting the best mileage that I have drawn out of my Tia :)

@Sridhar , is it that your car gave a mileage of 30kmpl or is it that the mileage calculator on the dash showed you an estimate of what you can achieve?
The best way to calculate is to take a long drive with odometer readings before and at the end of the trip, calculate with the amount of fuel consumed (full tank to after trio full tank). Was that the way you calculated?

This always a correct method to calculate. Mileage computers are unpredictable on a short distance trip.  

For example, If I reset my car mileage calculator on ORR slope or while coasting, it shows 30 KMPL.
It will drop to 12 KMPL in a matter of minutes.

It is of course my car that gave this mileage doc, this was the average overall my ride around ORR. However, I too generally use full tank to full tank method and I get 28 kmpl on highways (observed during my Hyd - Tanuku Drive).

That's a great mileage I should say ...

 

I could manage the best mileage at 21KMPL at a speed of 80-100 kmph, Vijayawada to Hyderabad, on my Renault Scala.

I believe that 'Full tank to Full tank' is the only best and an accurate way of calculating the mileage of any vehicle be it within the city limits or on the highways :)

Yes this orthodox way is the best way compared to the readings it shows ..

Compass mileage has impressed me comparing it with it's competitors in the market. A car as such having a super good build quality and giving these numbers makes it a champion in it's segment :D

you should also appreciate the guy behind the steering wheel as he has been driving so patiently in the city and ensuring that mileage does not come down :P;) ..

I gave my car for  first service and reading showed 16 kmpl (after my trip) and when the car came to me the reading read 8kmpl.. So just imagine how well the service guys did servicing of my car (no pun intended ) , now I am back to 12.5 after averaging out..

LoL~ Yes. I hope they improve on that service unlike how the Mahaveer Skoda is dealing things in the city for decades. I wish to see some other dealership for Skoda too.. And I wonder why and how that's not happening..? ¬¬

yes they should increase the service centers drastically .. there is one in miyapur and i guess one in Uppal and the number of jeep's i am seeing nowadays on roads have increased multifold..

they also do servicing for Fiat's as well at the same service center.. fingers crossed..

    • Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh
      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
