    Default Honda City idsi gets 26.2 km per liter

    Guys, read this on web. Wondering in what conditions these guys test these cars - We never get such numbers with the same cars

    Honda City idsi gets 26.2 km per liter in fuel economy challenge

    Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd demonstrated the fuel efficiency of their Honda City i-DSI last weekend, in an event they called the F.E.A.T., or the Fuel Efficiency Automobile Test. And a feat it was, because the results were very impressive indeed.

    Sixteen participants took part in the challenge which required participants to only adhere to an average highway speed limit of 80km/hour while retaining other the attributes of an everyday-sedan such as having the air-conditioning switched on during the drive, and luggage and spare tyre in the cargo area.

    The challenge took them from Honda Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. in Petaling Jaya to Cameron Highlands situated 5440ft above sea level, and to Bukit Merah. After a night’s rest, the journey back to Honda’s headquarters resumed. Conditions were set as if it was a vacation trip with friends or family. Each Honda City had four occupants besides a car boot full of typical items like vacation luggage.

    The whole route stretched more than 660km, but the aim was to complete it using less than one full tank of a Honda City’s petrol tank, which was 42 liters, or RM80.64. AAM officials were present to measure the fuel level before and after the journey.

    The result? The few teams got different levels of fuel consumption according to individual driving style, but all managed to complete the 660km journey using only the petrol in the fuel tank. The winning team comprising of Jimmy Ng, 27; Eric Goh, 29; Sim Chee Kun, 30 and Edwin Ng, 28 - they managed 662.5km on only 25.29 liters of petrol! That’s slightly more than half a fuel tank, or 26.2km per liter of fuel! Most of the journey to the destination involves the use of highways, but going to Cameron Highlands involves alot of uphill roads as well. They took back RM4,000 worth of prizes comprising Honda watches, RM1,000 worth of petrol vouchers, Honda Racing umbrellas and caps.

    Much more than just a gimmick or a publicity stunt, this is the real deal. I am impressed that Honda is confident enough with it’s i-DSI technology to attempt this challenge with real world situations where the results actually matters. No one goes around driving with the windows winded up and air conditioning off at the same time, etc as with alot of the fuel mileage challenges out there

    @Maox its the same technology - But dont know why- Maybe the "conditions" vary i.e. operating temperature, traffic jams etc etc.

    Also I think it has to do with driving habbits too - they would have drove it with most economical rpms and all gear shifts at the best possible times..

    @zeeshan_shah what speed? I will try it in winters w/o AC - summers w/o AC is not possible.

    How did you measure your average? Just confirming to make sure there was no miscalculations.

    This ratio also depends on what kind of fuel you are using.....well here in our country MIXED up petrol or irani petrol is available so we cannot get that much average here.

    i tested da pakistani city once under the best conditions.i.e. tyres properly inflated,only driver on board wid no passenger even widout the spare wheel.change gears at 2500rpm.drove constantly @85km/h on a streight deserted road.it was early morning.not too hot,not too cold.started it once da engine reached operating temprature when da "blue: light shuts off.gave 20.125km/ltr.
    i believe no other car can do that but its no where near 26.
    otherwise when i came from lahore at mostly ideal conditions.gave 18.3km/ltr....chill up guys.

    @ahmadbilal and @bluntknife, sounds like 18-20 km/l is achieveable then. Cool!

    even 18km/l is awesome cause the rolla or civics give less then 14..and 14 is not even the right figure, it should be like 11/12 for those 1.6/1.8L cars. And the XLi & GLi, well I dont know their #s...

    But 26/l is awesome!
