# Thread: 26.2 km/l after 180 Kilometers - Honda City official world record broken!

1. ## 26.2 km/l after 180 Kilometers - Honda City official world record broken!

Asalam o Aalaikum Wr Wb,

Ok so my aim was to get 30 Km/l but I did a few mistakes which I am sure I can fix in my next trip.

Here is a link to the last 'record' made by Honda Malaysia: Honda City i-DSI gets 26.2km per liter in fuel economy challenge

Anyway, so I was at 26.0 km/l when I was coming out of the Islamabad-interchange:

By the time I reached home (from Islamabad interchange to Gulzar-e-Quaid) the average increased by 0.2 kpl. The final kilometers per liter I got when I was standing in front of my house was 26.2 Km/l:

Total trip (from Peshawar to Islamabad) till my house cost me:

Code:
```183km/26.2 = 6.98 Liters
6.98 liters x Rs. 68.02 = Rs. 475```
This was not high octane. It was normal fuel. Speed was around 80 Km/h. There was only me in the car (single person load) with absolutely no air conditioning. I started driving near Maghrib so AC wasn't needed.

For the record: If anyone who finds it difficult to believe, feel free to visit me. I am near Gulzar-e-Quaid and the car is still showing this reading.

Thanks!

For those who are going blab about electronic mileage calculators being not accurate:
(why does my comment keep loosing text formatting?)

We're all only comparing "the average displayed in the trip calculator.."

And please, I am not claiming that I have 'officially broken the world record.' Please, take it easy! There's nothing to be worried about here. You can do this too!

The needle that shows how much fuel is remaining in the car 'does not' check the amount of fuel left in the tank all the time. It checks it only on refills. It only brings the needle down by seeing how much 'average' someone is making. Not by checking the fuel tank again and again. << = This is a very important line. Please read this aloud 5 times if you're missing it.

This means its much more accurate than our assumptions.

If you put CNG in Honda City and drive the car on CNG, the fuel needle still falls down normally (but goes back up after you've turned off the car and a there is a huge difference in the remaining fuel and the needle's position).

If people at Honda have considered this to be so much trust worthy, I don't see why we cannot do the same. They are showing the remaining fuel to the diver. That's a very critical thing to play with.

Another simple fact of the matter is, I am talking about "the average displayed in the car" (if its considered to be inaccurate, Honda is to be blamed, not the driver).

3. The fact of the matter is, that the new city manages almost the same or maybe slightly better fuel average as other 1.3 Ltr engines out there.

As far as the onboard computer is concerned, and what fantastic figures it produces, I am sorry, but I have this:

4. I don't get it.

Honda City official world record broken!
Am I missing out on something? I am not doubting or questioning anything, apart from your 2 over-lapping statements.

@Bilal: to me it can be possible with one pax Air conditioning after gaining the speed of 70 - 75 does not makes a difference as per my experiance.

will be leaving for Gujranwala after eid on my cultus (Non CNG since 2006) with 4 pax in total, will definatly share the entire trip with fuel expense.
I've heard that from Karachi to Hyderabad there is a strong wind resistance.

Also 4 people with Air Conditioner getting 18 kpl is still not bad. I think from Peshawar to Rawalpindi (or vice versa) there are many down and up streams. And there isn't huge wind resistance. Probably this is the reason I am able to get the mileage that I am getting.

But again there are a lot of people who travel on the same track and get around 19 kpl.

There is a heading in bold/bigger size on the first post of this thread that has a lot for you to read in this regard.

be cool man...

you will be facing even harder moments when you get 30 kms/L using 80/20 or some othe ratio of super unleaded and high octane....

still, if you even got HALF that i'd be impressed to be honest.

keep us updated.
The title says "Offical world record broken."

Suppose there are two guys, A and B.

'A' made a world record that was recognized officially.

B makes a record which equals the record of A but unofficially and tells his friends: "I broken A's official world record."

I think its plane English.

Also, not believing the mileage is actually a disease. I mean if the same guys (City owners) post mileage of city showing 17 or even 18, people would say Oh nice, that's good average.

But as soon as this goes above 21, every one comes up with "oh electornic calculators have this issue, oh basically your car has this issue.. oh why don't you buy a mehran?"

aiceee mujhe sharam aai idher kuch hazraat ki posts parh ke..

"Mehran le lo if you want to save fuel?" Koi sharam nahi mehsoos hoi idher kisi ko bhi ke yar yeh koi baat hai karne wali?

But yeh cheez shameful tab feel ho jab koi eik adh he banda ho is thinking ka. A good amount of people actually don't find this shameful at all. Really..

Your fuel economy is the odometer difference divided by the fuel used.

Until that happens, your claims are just hot air as far as truth is concerned.

I copy Chang!!!<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

ok Bilal
this is the time for you to prove every one wrong

every second person going through this thread asks you to do do calculations manually...

if you are sure enough that your milage is close to the readings given by the gadget, then trying this is not a bad idea...
you can atleast try one time

do it man

15. lol. Some of the replies really made me laugh. Its interesting how a discussion regarding fuel economy leads to people literally exhibiting no patience for each other whatsoever, showing off what they have driven and WHERE they have driven it. I mean come on guys, give OP a break. I really dont see whats wrong with trying to achieve good fuel consumption by driving efficiently, within limits so on and so forth. I agree most of us do not have patience to go to the limits that OP has went but If by doing so, he can save money, it aint really bad.

Purchasing a comfortable family sedan like city is a one time expenditure. Spending lots of money on fuel is an on-going expenditure that can be a burden for most of us if not all. I went to peshawar once on a civic and due to my driving habits, ended up spending more than 1300 rs of fuel. So if i need to travel on this route so often and everytime i can save 500-600 rs, whats wrong with that?

@OP
You dont really have to justify your logic and point of view to everyone in each of your replies. And your hypermiling thread WAS useful. Whether or not id be able to do it is another debate but it was an interesting thread nevertheless. People make countless pointless threads on CIVIC VS COROLLA, i dont see why one would call your thread pointless.

16. I really don't see anything wrong for you to be obsessed with your gas mileage but claiming to be the record holder is little Coo Coo.

keep with us to make pakwheelers understand

18. i must say its amazing,but kinda impracticle in daily running of car,coz within city the roads are so crowded to ACTUALLy do all this hypermiling practice..plus we normally are always in a hurry to reach where we are heading,then the traffic horns,temperature conditions etc etc,there are so many things which would definitly keep most of us from acting so VERY WISELY in order to save some bucks... peace!!

19. ^ this stuff is mostly for high ways man
atleast i think

personally i try to keep the car on low rev/ high gear to save fuel
i do it on my City
i used to do it on my Cultus
i wuld have done it on my FX aswell if i was old enuff to drive it back then

if this guy buys a Mehran like some ppl have said
he can drive it like this aswell and save fuel
or can rev it up and burn even more fuel

Exactly, that's exactly my point. Exactly!

It doesn't matter which car you drive. Just driving it efficiently saves gas. That's all we're talking about.

In fact you might say we're talking about "not waisting gas".
