The reason I am asking this is, I own a 2013-Jan Ford Fiesta Classic with close to 50K on OD and as per my understanding I get close to 20-21 KMPL on highway with 90-100 KMPH speed and around 17-18 in City with AC on ( not bumper to bumper Traffic )
i calculated this with the full tank to full tank with method. older cars always tends to give more milage. my car is at 1.6 lakh km. i always refuel at shell petrol pumps. if i refeul at india oil car gives milage of around 2 km lesser than shell. this is my experiance with my rapid and fiesta. my car is never service outside ford service center. your car is also giving good milage. it just 2 kmpl lower than mine. milage changes by person to person, beacause of driving patter, odo reading, maintaince.
Skoda rapid 1.6 tdi 2014.
car is at 1.01 lakh km.
tank capacity :- 55 liter (65 in actual with top up and fuel pump reserve)
fuel used:- 49 liter
distance covered:- 1232 km
km after last oil change and service:- 17200 km.
type of road:- city 20%, highway 100%
with 100 % ac on.
driving pattern:- 80-100 km at 2000 to 2100 rpm.
car usually give mileage of 22-23 but this time surprisingly mileage is increased.i always seen that whenever car oil get thinner and it need to be changed car starts giving better mileage. this is my experience with fully synthetic 5w-40 sm.always refuel at shell so in comparison with other pumps i usually get 2 kmpl extra milage.

With A/C 50% ON, I am consistently getting 23-24 kmpl on my Nissan Sunny XL Diesel.
I am using Shell for last 3 years. It's 2012 model with 48k on ODO currently.
MID shows 27+, but tankful calculation shows 23-24.
shell fuel always give 2 kmpl extra mileage than other pumps. this is my experience with shell for more than 1 lakh km of using shell diesel.
