    Dont be too heavy on the gas pedal buddy.

    Avoid sudden knee jerk acceleration, unwanted Idling, drive in the highest possible gear at all times.

    I owned it too for 2years and my City Avg was 10-11kmpl. Im a slow poke, and thus drive at a snail's pace.

    Avg depends on route of the vehicle which is used.

    Anything above 9 is the best one can get...he should even distribute mithai if someone gets above 9...yes many people get around 10 and even 11 but that is one in hundred and for that you will be hearing horns behind you as you will have to accelerate the car on first paddle

    Default My 2014 Civic Oriel Prosmatic isnt giving sufficient fuel economy

    I drove my 9th Gen 35000 kilometer ever since I bought it brand new. Never ever ever in its life it had had gone below 8.5 no matter how harsh or rough i was on the throttle. And that maybe only very occasional for it to drop that low.
    It would normally do 10-11 in summers with full AC. And I don't drive exactly like senior citizens I am often throttle happy. As far as the iMid on board fuel average is concerned, well some other fellows here might have variations but whenever and IF I checked and compared it with an ordinary calculation method (Kms / Liters) it used to be a 99% precise figure as on display.
    On highway I fetched 16+
    You can subtract a figure of 1-2 kilometers per Liter from 9th Gen fuel average to have an idea of 8th Gen fuel average.

    The R18 engine is a fuel guzzler, but then, it also depends on your driving style and traffic conditions. 8-10 kpl is normal for an automatic civic. If you're patient, you can extract 12kpl provided there is less traffic and you keep a light foot on the pedal. 9.8, in my book, for an automatic civic, is satisfactory unless you're driving on the motorway which should give you anywhere between 13-15 kpl, provided you don't exceed 100 km/h.
