    Shoot. I am sorry. Yeah it actually does that much. For a test, once I reset the meter to zero in murree and came back to pindi with an extremely light foot. The average I got was 38 kilometers per liter, so yes, it's correct

    My Honda city I-vtec gives 14km/l with 50% AC.
    With Full time AC. It never crossed 450km in one tank. One of my friend is also experiencing the same thing. Without ac. it touches 15km/l.
    I never believe on board mileage calculators. My car's odo meter shows 14km/l with AC. But in reality. It gives 450km in one tank. Which is around 11km/l. I'm a very calm driver. Most of the time. RPM is in between 2.5-3.5k RPM range.
    If I drive it like a donkey cart. Bohat he sukoon se chalaun. Then it gives 13km/l with AC.

    On the other hand. My 8th gen civic manual gives 13km/l with AC on same route with light foot. On normal + heavy foot. It gives 11km/l with AC.
    Both cars are totally honda maintained. I strictly keep oil change duration at 3.5-4000 km max with oil filter change at every oil change.

    over the period of time ive found that in order to get good mileage figures from city ivtec one needs to drive it at 2.5k rev (approx)
    reach th revs in a moderate speed,with each gear changed at 2.7k rev (approx)..till u reach yr desired speed and then maintain yr speed with alight foot at approx 2.5 k rev
    the above works with manual transmission offcourse
    to be honest ive never gotten to calculate th mileage as a whole,but this method surely keeps the on board fuel calculator showing good mileage,its reliability however is always debate-able..good luck

    Revs alone don't matter. Sometimes you can be at just 2.5k RPM and the car will still give 10km/L if you're using too high a gear for the speed you're going.
    Respect others opinions and they'll respect yours.

    When calculating the mileage, also keep the quantity of the petrol you get from a particular petrol pumps, most will give you 0.7 for 1 litre or even lesser. If you keep an eye on the fuel gauge after you fill from different petrol pumps you will know the real story.

    If you do not switch off your engine while waiting at a signal (more than 60 secs), you will never get good mileage. Also waiting in the car with AC on in the parking lot while the family is shopping destroys the good mileage dream.

    If you are in habit of running into a red light and then on green light launching the car as if a race is starting, you will never get mileage.

    If you are in the habit of overtaking every car in front of you, you will never get good mileage.

    Most people would never care about such things and then say gaddi tel buhat khaati ha.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    pressing the clutch,lifting the foot off the accelerator and keeping it ready to apply the brakes (if necessary), removes the need of moving the car in neutral gear,let yr car remain in a respectable gear as per the speed andd watch the speedometer show 40km/L mileage..(keep yr eyes on the road,but in the above mentioned scenario the meter does show reading of 40km/L {debate-able})

    I think this method will decrease the life of clutch plates for your vehicle. My city gives me 14-16 KM/L with A/C and within city. What I do to observe the speed limit w.r.t condition of the road. Let's say if I have to drive at 60 KM then quickly reach to the limit of 60 and then maintain this speed limit. Whenever need to slowing down the speed simply lift the accelerator but leave the vehicle in gear.

    when the car is off, RPM at 0
    when the car is start at idle, RPM should be around 700-800 RPM

    oil and filter...use genuine Honda oil and filter if car is under warranty. if not, use Liqui Moly oil and Lepon oil filter. genuine oil filter can also be used with Liqui Moly Oil.

    Yes shifting each gear in the prescribed speed range is required. As mentioned earlier if you change the gear too early i.e high gear at slow speed then the car would consume more fuel due to engine knocking. I experienced it on my way to Sargodha. Honda people asked me to follow the car manual. I think it says:

    1st to 2nd gear at around 21 Km/hr
    2nd to 3rd gear at around 42 Km/hr
    3rd to 4th gear at around 62 Km/hr
    and 4th to 5th gear at about 85 Km/hr. (You can consult your Honda City manual for exact figures)

    Now these are the speed ranges to change a gear but the thing which I want to know is the upper and lower speed ranges for each gear. I think they are not mentioned in Honda City manual. I am more interested in lower range. Like you said that you traveled at the speed of 60 Km/hr in 5th gear. Is it safe and economical for the car?

    (digging this thread)
    The recommended shift points in the owner's manual are not for optimum fuel consumption. They are meant to provide a balance between
    fuel economy and acceleration, so naturally neither is achieved.

    The optimum shift points for fuel economy are something like this: 2nd gear after 2 car lengths, the rest of the gears at 2000 rpm. For the Honda City, 5th can be used as low as 50 km/h, but the car will be unable to accelerate. You can shift to 5th if you don't want to exceed 50 km/h, such as in heavy traffic.

    For ~2L 4-cylinder cars, you can shift as low as 1600 rpm in some gears.
