    Default True Fuel Average of Honda City Idsi

    Hi Guys,

    I have just bought a new city vario manual. I have had read that its milage goes up to 18 km/l within the city. Unfortunately for the first 350 kms I did on mine, the average appears to lower than that - around 14-15 km/l.

    I am running under 3000 rev - and not over 80 km/hr - which I believe the most economical driving mode.

    Would like to hear fuel averages from other guys who have owned an idsi or used it?

    Thanks,

    @ahmadbila 18 km/l sounds very promising :-) - Eager to complete the first 5000 km or take it to a longer route.

    Petrol consumption in Karachi city will probably the worst in the country. That's obviously due to awefull traffic jams. So you can definitely expect the Vario to give 14 w/o AC in city and 13 with AC in city (hey driving styles differ! Keep the revs down and avoid driving in S or L modes)

    @all
    Always fill your tanks when its a little bit "cooler" outside (temperature).

    @waqarcheema

    Bro, I dont know the exact, but accelerate calmly and avoid sudden braking. Shift gears as smoothly as possible and youll get most fuel efficiency.

    @HumanGenius Thanks - Good tips -

    I am actually doing all this - i.e. accelerating slowly and also not reving much - infact max RPM on average is mere 3k :-)

    First thing, ur rims n tyres are too large for the car.15 inch rims are heavy on the idsi engine, plus the 195 tread size.this could be the first reason for ur cars' low milage.

    but there can be other reasons too, the quality of fuel, the way u drive i.e. hard acceleration and higher RPMs cause low fuel economy.it can also be something about tuning of ur car, when was the last one done?? and wat did u get done in it?

    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    i still dont know how u guys run the idsi on 14 and 15's with 195's.
    the car even with stock tyres feels like running on 2 double AA size batteries (like a good friend of mine says and i agree)
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    LOL
    With all due respect sir, the meaning of that statement is that from 1.3L to 2.0L, from standard to highest model, all have the same shape, same looks, higher models may have side skirts n rims etc on exterior but still, pay 1.3million of 1.9m , u get the same shape... thats wat the point was.

    Well, we dont have a lot of options.though 195 is a bit too much for city, but it gives excellent grip n stability.the acceleration is sluggish even on the stock 165, so by changing tyres to 185/195, atleast u get the stability which u never had on 165s.

    Stats of my car...

    Honda City IDSI mid 2008...
    195/60/R15

    Within City with Partially A/C on... 12 to 13.5 KM/L (lets say half time A/c on)
    Within City without A/C in winters... 14 to 15 KM/L

    GT road with A/C full time on... fan speed 1 (18 to 19 KM/L).. Speed mostly @ 100 KM/H and less...

    Motorway...partially A/C on... Speed 120+ KM/H almost all the time... 140 KM/H for half an hour... touched 160 couple of times.... Fuel average around 13..

    It gives best fuel economy while driving under 3 RPM
    It has less initial pickup so don't dare to do a drag race with corolla or new city

    Overall an excellent car... Drive comfort, fuel economy, space etc...

    Good calculations... thats very much do-able for idsi.

    just wanted to tell u that fan speed wont effect fuel economy, its on 1 or 4, wont effect.
