    Rightly said friend, it would do more on longer trips. Your daily travel is very low in terms of distance, lucky you

    btw, I have started getting over 20 km/l on the same routes with careful driving and adopting some basic hypermiling techniques. On longer trips I think I can even cross 25 km/l

    So it proves that claims by Honda for 26 kmpl are not that wrong. Is that average from computer or manual calculation from top up to top up.

    Default 8000 km on and the FIT keeps getting better

    When I went about looking for a hybrid, Prius was the only option but it just didn't make economical sense. You have to be running a public transport business on Prius to bring it anywhere close to justifying it's price tag.

    Then I found a couple of FIT on Pakwheels. Like most of us, I did some googling and liked the averages mentioned there. Spoke with some of the sellers and finally test drove a few. They were mostly over 60,000 km so decided that I was not going to pay 1.6M for a small car that had already aged. Luckily the guys at mycar dot pk informed me they were to receive one repaired FIT that had only 13,000 km on it. By the way they are one of the few dealers that will show you the original auction sheet that is verifiable online. So I went and gave it a spin. The car was as good as new and I went ahead and bought it. The trunk was repaired as per the auction sheet but the Japs had done a great job coz I couldn't notice any imperfections.

    Registered the same day, I took it on the motorway the same week in early July. In fact the final destination was beyond Mansehra with 3 people and full load in the trunk. A month later we took it again to Islamabad from Lahore and enjoyed it thoroughly. The car does mostly school duty in Lahore and the usual family chores but the drive is such that one wants to drive it everyday. The drive is comfortable and you tend to forget that you are in a budget hybrid but the suspension on the back may remind that to you on bumps.

    Here are the numbers:
    Total km done since owned= Over 8000
    Fuel avg in the last 6000 km = 15.5 km/l

    City running with avg speed 27 km/h:
    Avg in Summers with AC = 16.5 km/l
    Avg in Winters without AC = 17.5 km/l

    On the highway with avg speed 110 km/h:
    Avg in Summers with AC = 20 km/l
    Avg in Winters without AC = Not tested yet

    Some pictures are attached that I took yesterday to share with you Pakwheelers.

    I hope this helps you decide.

    Have fun!

    thanks @goahead for sharing your experience, I am also getting similar averages with my fit, but I haven't been on highway on it yet. The trick to get good mileage is to allow it to cruise in EV mode as much as possible. When moving with the traffic, instead of staying bumper to bumper and frequently accelerating and braking, keep some distance and maintain a steady speed. with some careful driving you can easily cross 20 kmph on each trip.

    and as far as odo reading is concerned, 60k isn't too much for these modern cars, if serviced and maintained properly. but you're really lucky to get such a low mileage car with non-tempered meter.

    Does anyone know if I can change the language of Internavi navigation unit of my car.

    I have tried my luck on google but looks like you cannot change the language and maps of these units are they are JDM specific and the only option is to replace the whole head-unit with some aftermarket one, which I don't want to do as this one looks pretty nice and a decent aftermarket unit wouldn't come cheap.

    any thoughts @rizwan400 or other experts

    No idea about language change. However many after market units can be fit. Search the market and preferably buy android.

    Yeah, going for an aftermarket unit would be the last resort, but I wanted to know if there's anything I can do with this one.

    1-Japanese fuel avg test claims big numbers but its very hard to achieve those numbers .you need to be really good hypermiller with 35 plus psi on the tyres .
    2-If one buys hybrid car and still has to hyper mill then wots the point of spending 1.6million and that too on a hatch back.
