    Smile Honda City iVTEC hypermiling

    AOA Guys,

    I'm calling Honda City iVTEC owners and need some tips for Hypermiling. With my driving style I'm getting almost 12km/l in city with AC on. I'm trying my best to follow hypermiling rules, BUT when a Honda mechanic took test drive of my car then he easily achieved upto 17km/l with AC on (in my same car without anything changed). I was like , I asked him how's he is driving? at what RPM should I shift gears? should I go for normal or slow acceleration etc... and he simply replied "bas sir normal driving kar raha hoon (with a wicked smile)"

    So calling Honda City owners about some Hypermiling tips to achieve atleast 15+ km/l

    JazakAllah!

    Are you referencing to the computer readings displayed at the odo meter ?, as far as i know most of the members having CIty does not believe on it.
    Well it is a 1300cc car and if you are getting 12km/l with ac in city then what else do you want ?
    because i am getting 14-15 km/l with ac in my Vitz 1000cc.

    ^^ Yes I'm referring towards ODO Meter reading and being 1300cc car Honda City is know for its great mileage. Plus that Honda guy achieved 16+ km/l mileage so definitely there is something wrong in my driving style.

    buddy that reading must have been for a short distance after a meter reset by the honda guy, i can make it show something like 25km/l easily on a open road after reset, if you always get the car filled up to full tank then next time u can see how many km's it ran in consumed fuel and get the real average, that meter is not accurate in short runs, though for a whole tank if say u have traveled like 300-400 km's and its showing 12.5 km/l then your real average will also be some where from 11.5 to 13 km/l.

    Thanks for replying, well yeah he reset the AVG meter. So what is the trick in this? How it shows more km/l by resetting the Meter?

    as after reset it starts calculating average from zero, and if u drive the car on open road with very light foot, or u drive it say up to 50-60 km/h and neutral the car let it roll for a few hundred meters, the meter will show very good average something like 22-30 km/l, thats just false calculation due to just a few data points, it takes at least 5-10 km of driving normal driving for the meter to give some reliable results.

    don't be too worried about fuel average, enjoy your car, at max one can get 1-2 km/l saving without going crazy,,,,
    u can get above that using a few methods like rolling,,, say speed up to a good speed like 60-80 and let the car roll in neutral till u reach say 40, and then again speed up...
    r keeping the rpm low and driving in 1000-1800 rpm range, (which can cause engine damage in long run).
    a friend of mine used to do extreme with the rolling technique, he used to switch engine off while rolling, now when u switch off, the meter is off, the power steering don't work and breaks are also loose,,, once i traveled with him me in my car and he was driving his our start location and end was same with the same route and the total distance shown by my car was 32 km where as his meter was showing he traveled only 17 km ..... i was like WTF.... he traveled almost half the time with engine off. so basically you can go crazy of just spend a bit more fuel and enjoy a 1.5 million worth car u got under you.

    Lolz.. your friend was doing some extreme hypermiling. Thanks for tips, yeah I will empty one fuel tank with my natural driving style and one with Hypermiling mode then based on results I'll choose which style to keep

    I am also now a Honda City Owner (2009 Model, with 83000km driven). I am also getting 16+ km/L and I have tested the Odo meter's readings, they are almost exact with an exception of few decimal points. My driving style is soft pedal and steady acceleration, shifting 2nd and 3rd gear at 3k rpm, and then running the car within city at 80 km/hr speed (go to 100km/hr sometimes to overtake etc).

    Light foot shift at 2000rpm run it with flow of traffic no drag start if you see red light round the corner neutral it and add 40% High octane (say Rs400 hobc with Rs 600 supreme ) You will see amazing fuel economy. But keep in mind cars spark plugs air filter must be clean and don't compromise on timely and good quality oil change.

    Driving in neutral gear is not advisable. You wont be able to handle the car in that gear if a situation suddenly arises. Better spend a 100 more on fuel than spending thousands on repairs.

    Rest all hypermilling techniques are ok.
