So guys, today i got my hands on a close friend's new honda city (a guy who does'nt mind me doing anything with his car :))
i checked it for two different things.
1) Fuel economy
The car had 18,000kms+ with 185 sized tires and is totally driven on petrol.at the time i tested.there were only two people in the car.
A few people complained that their cars are giving more then 11-12km/ltr and that the acceleration is pathetic (a guy from islamabad claimed that he can bet a million on the fact that it cannot drive up to peer sohawa (margalla hills)
anyways, i pushed it hard, touched 150km/h in a 1km stretch and then on a different road, 180km/h on almost 2kms long road.i couldnt make a video as i had no good quality cam but acceleration was excellent!
Then, i tried some fuel economy runs, did some super economy runs and a few kms of normal and then few kms of harsh driving!
the instantaneous average was:-
above 20km/ltr for super economy run
above 16km/ltr with normal, city driving
and 11-13km/ltr with 'padel to the metal' (even when i was doing 171km/h with 6100 RPM)
The "Real" average, which is shown in figures just below the bar, showed the following readings
upto 23.8km/ltr in super economy driving (doing 40km/h in 5th, cruising)
around 17.5km/ltr in normal driving conditions in city
almost 12km/ltr with padel down
so , do any of u think these figures are not upto the mark or surprising?
(gonna post pix as proof in next post)
