    Default Honda City Vario - Optimum RPM for fuel efficiency

    The topic pretty much says it all. Can some technically sound folks share their knowledge regarding the optimum rpm for the Vario during city driving? My impression was that the lower the RPM, the better the mileage (i.e. less fuel consumed), but I've recently been told that that might not be true.

    I get around 12 km/litre within the city with 100% AC on my 2007 Vario. Would like some feedback on what other people's experiences are like.


    Thanks,

    F

    The topic of "Hypermiling" would be of very interest to you then. GOOGLE it.

    I wonder why fuel eff. is less in your cars. I have honda city 2005 iDSI and get approx.
    on petrol
    14 to 16 kms on long with AC.
    12 Kms local with AC on.

    On cng
    approx 150 -160 kms with AC on on long in full cylinder 55L
    approx 100 to 110 local with AC on.

    I came to derive a formula that keep your engine RPM in between 3 to 3.4 K RPM. in other word speed 90 to 110 km/h

    yar its weight n capacity of cylender
    it means that abt 8.5/9 kg cng in 55kg capacity cylender having 200/220 bar pressure
    abt 18 km per kg cng
    18kg in appr 70 rupee new price
    actually in 1300 cc cars rpm abt 2.75 to 3.3 gives more fuel economy than other
    n in manual system low push of cradle n change of gear as
    ist gear only for move of car
    2nd abt 10 to 20 speed
    3rd gear bt 40 to 50
    4th gear abt 60 to 70
    5th gear abt 80 to 90
    n u will get best result
    n more than 1300 cc
    best rpm is 2.2 esp in 1800cc altis civic etc
    in other words gaari ka zor nai lagnay daina smooth driving n humble driving
    in automatic drive smooth pace will enhance the fuel economy
    although in city automatic consume more than out of city than the manual
