I have been observing mileage of my 4800 KMs driven Grand i10, positively it's getting better with every tankful, I am using drivo app to calculate mileage and other expenses. so here are the satistics:
First 1500 KMs : 13 KMPL
1500 KMs to 3100 KMs: 14.7 KMPL
3100 KMs to 3900 KMs: 15 KMPL
3900 to 4400 KMs: 15.8 KMPL
4400 to 4800 KMs: 16.5 KMPL
Driving conditions: 38 KMs in light traffic, 14 KMs in heavy traffic everyday (Mon to Fri).
I don't use clutch unless there is very heavy stop & go traffic, rather downshift b/w 2nd and 1st gear and often test the lowest torque (6 KMPH Speed).
AC is used intermittently.
I don't skip any opportunity to upshift to 5th gear, but the moment speedometer goes to 50 KMPH, 5th gear is triggered right without delay, All efforts to keep the revv between 1000 to 2500 RPM fructifies into better mileage. I would like to know from you "Kitna deti he" ?
