    Default Honda City Aspire 1.3 Mileage Problem

    My car is giving me no more than 7.3 Km/L, what can be the problem ?? Or its normal ?? At least it should give me 10 - 11 km/L as i always try to keep RPM's under 2 to 2.5 .. i dont believe in the readings given on screen so i calculated it manually .. i always refill when the car shows reserved yellow light.. it always refill with 30 litres and it gives me range of around 220km untill the yellow light again shows up..

    Tyre size (195/65R15) as the stock tire size has worst eoad grip

    Alloy Rims: Stock aspire rims

    Tyre pressure (32Psi in front .. 30Psi in rear ) as per written on car door

    Engine oil: castrol 5w30 fully synthetic (recently changed)

    Oil filter: original honda (recently changed)

    Air filter: Original honda (recently changed)

    AC cabin filter: Original Honda (recently changed)

    Coolant: honda type 2 (Recently Changed)

    I always drive with Ac ON on 2..3 fan speed.

    Help!!!

    No Honda city under 50K driven gives less than 10-12 kmpl. Go to honda again, tell them to check and recheck everything. You may need to spend some money. What is the model?
    Model is 2013 .. its an automatic transmission .. they said that the brake pads are after market ones ..so u should better change them to original ones ..thats why they changed the brake pads .

    I told that guy in white uniform in honda that i'm getting a mileage of 8km/L in winters . He said that its ok to get this mileage .. if u want 10..11 km/L then u should keep RPM's under 1.5 .. how can one keep RPM's under 1.5 ??????as this car sometimes feels underpowerd ..

    So its an automatic transmission. Your best average should be around 10-12 kmpl. The brakes are used more in an auto so thats why they changed it. Always use genuine honda parts, esp brakes. If its a 1.3 automatic then the car is going to be very underpowered, esp with Ac on. My best bet after all the honda clean ups etc would be no more than 8 kmpl with AC. Next time dont buy a 1.3 auto. Go for 1.5 Aspire.

    when u ask a 1.3 auto city guy about mileage
    he either lies
    or does not reply
    reality is, it sucks

    even with little tweaks you wld get slight improvement

    1.5 for auto
    for manual 1.3 is perfectly fine

    prior research before buying a car is useful

    probably this is y the previous guy sold a almost brand new car
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Before 25k km the brake pads has been changed already by the previous owner, so it means that either that owner was a race car driver who braked frequently or that the car has done about 60k+ km and even the aftermarket brake pads had worn out! Meter reversal is not such a big job nowadays, I think.

    If the car has done excessive mileage since 2013 with engine parts worn out then it is possible that you may get bad mileage. If you personally know the previous owner then maybe you can ask for his opinion but if you have bought the car from a stranger then it is a bit difficult to gauge what type of maintenance he had done on the car and whether the odometer mileage is true or not.

    Best solution would be to get a thorough check up from Honda (including engine condition) and then thinking of a way ahead.

    For an automatic car, 25k is sufficient life of brake pads. Some people brake really hard to stop the car.
    In case of manuals, it's normally 40-60k kms.

    Next time calculate using tank to tank method. This on board calculator is pretty useless on long routes. 19.9 kmpl is too good to be true.

    You shouldn't. On board mileage calculator has lots of variations.
    Always calculate using tank to tank method.

    @op In a city like Islamabad where roads are wide open and traffic is streamlined, almost every car manages to return some considerable mileage figures.
    Automatic 1.3 city does around 11-12 kmpl with air con.
    Whereas MT 1.3 manages around 14-15 kmpl.
