    Default My world record of Fuel Economy in Honda City 09.

    Asalam o Aalaikum Wr Wb,

    Brothers today I drove from Islamabad till Risalpur Academy and when I was shocked at the average it gave me. The speed was about 100 or 110. Sometimes even 90. The average was between 90 - 110.

    The average also includes the distance driven inside the city. I reset my odo meter in Gulzar-e-Quaid and took the pictures in Risalpur.

    What do you think?

    P.S: I have not changed engine oil, air filter, or oil filter in the last 5000 kilometers.

    P.S 2: It was filled with ordinary petrol. NO HIGH-OCTANE. Normal fuel bought for 75.20/Liter. Air Conditioner was not running. I turned it on a few times but not for long (I was driving at night so didn't need it). There were two people in the car including the driver. Rims and Tyres were factory default.

    Trip computers aren't 100% accurate, best off working out yourself. My vectra gave me 63miles per gallon in a round trip of 480 miles in one day. I worked it out after filling it to full tank, it was 47mpg so the trip computer was wrong

    I once filled up my tank to top in Peshawar, and refilled it after exiting from the Islamabad interchange. It 'hardly' got 600 rupees of Petrol in it. That turned out to be about 20.8 Kilometers per liter, but it was the same reading, the same value on the consumption meter. So I really trust my trip computer pretty much.

    Its average just keeps getting better all by its self. I don't know whats happening. When I bought it, it hardly gave me 18 - 19 kpl. It increased to 20, then 20.5, then 21.5 and today it was almost unbelievable.

    Also, people don't get these 'readings' (even if we assume they are not accurate) in their cars generally. Getting the reading should at least imply its doing better than other cars.

    Another way to verify this is to see the 'range' tab. That really cuts the accuracy down to a very tangible level as you can tell how much more kilometers your car will do with the remaining fuel.

    it's possible if the cars ideal fuel economy speed/efficiency is somewhere there but most likely it is wrong.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    @hashim bhai
    u'll have to believe this

    last month i went to lhr on my 2000vti filled tank from f-10..speed kept and 110-115kph with ac on..refilled tank from M.M alam road...got exact avg of 18.1 km

    i came back from lhr told my dad...he said impossible ...next day he went to jehlum came back and said the same that it did exact 18km at 80-100kph...nowadays we use the trip meter for calculating avg in city...ranges from 14km - 16km in isb depends on the usage of AC, now the car is in my younger brother's hands..he manages to get the mileage around 13km within city...

    worst avg i got was when once i came back from fsd 4pl in cars with luggage..constant 150kph..i got 9km/litre avg back then..

    atleast m quite happy with the mileage

    Salman,
    totally believe what u just said. when 96-00 vti came it was famous for the (vtec) and the great fuel economy it gave. people used to get 14 within city in VTI's
    since ur car is well kept i do agree.
    keeping a light foot on a highway(or within city) can do wonders!

    i used to get 12 avg on a car, and my father on the same car used to get 16 avg. it depends on how u drive alot
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    For any fuel consumption measurement to hold true, the following must be followed:

    The tires should be the original factory size so that there is no induced speedometer/odometer error. (A smaller than stock diameter tire will make more revolutions per mile and make one think that the car has travelled more than it actually has caused a erroneous calculation of goo consumption. Larger than stock tires will have less revolutions per mile and thus cause an artificially high fuel consumption, all other things being equal.)

    The tank should be filled at the start and the trip odometer zeroed. The tank should be filled at the end and odometer reading noted.

    The difference in the two odometer readings divided by the fuel used is the consumption.

    Ideally, this step should be repeated under identical trips to get an average.

    Anything less than this process is unlikely to be robust.
