    Default Poor mileage on City 2011

    I have a City 2011 which is driven around 2500km. I recently changed its oil + filter and went to Lahore via motorway. Even though I tried my absolute best, drove at only 110-120km/h I got only 15km/L with AC. When I was about to reach Lahore the tank was almost empty.
    Then when I came back, again I got max 15km/L and this time I refueled the car at Bhera just in case. I didn't drive like a maniac, and kept the speed constant as much as possible. 15KM/L is what I get in Islamabad, on motorway I expect around 18-19km/L

    I use 195/60/R15 tyres which does not change the height of the car so they're not the issue. What else can it be?

    Respect others opinions and they'll respect yours.

    Brother! Much better mileage means how much. I am also in same boat. My car is driven around 2500km. I am getting 16+. How much mileage we should expect after 5000km. Thanks.

    15 km/l is bit low mileage. But fine.
    Wait till 5000km. Mileage will get better.
    Yesterday I drove my 2010 city to kharian. My car gave me 16km/l with full tym AC on.
    and speed ranges were 100-120-140 with heavy foot. On motorway I believe it can do 18-19km/l.
    I'm using 205/65/r15 tyres. Car is 50,000km driven.

    2-3 kms difference and on next oil change go for fully synthetic oil!
