Re: Hyundai Verna 2016 1.6 VTVT(S): The Silver Fox (10K Kms. Second Service Update)
You sure yours is a petrol one ?
. Are those MID figures or FT2FT (Full Tank 2 Full Tank)? Do share some of your tips on gaining FE
It sure is petrol
. These are average of figures calculated FT2FT and MID .. and also based on the ODO readings. I'll share a tip (It might sound silly, but it helped) which was shared to me by a friend who also owns a Verna.
He asked me to try and keep my foot off the accelerator as much as possible. So this is what i started doing when I was not in a rush to get somewhere
- When in city limits, I step on the pedal and let the speed rise to anywhere between 60 - 80 Kmh (in case the traffic is less) and then take I take my foot off the pedal and let the car roll. When the speed gradually comes down to 60 from 80 then I apply light pressure on the pedal again to bring it back to 80 Kmh. So, its like I take my foot off the pedal every 15 - 20 secs depending on the speed and traffic and let the car roll along for a while without giving it power.
- its the same in highways also except that i'll be doing the same at a much higher speed.
NOTE: The above does not come in to consideration when you're in a rush to get somewhere or in heavy traffic.
you wouldn't believe, there was an instance when I was driving somewhere (a bit fast but i was not in a rush to reach anywhere) without applying the above concepts and my fuel indicator dropped down to one block and simultaneously the refueling indicator also lit up. Now, out of curiosity I tried performing the above procedure and in a couple of mins the fuel indicator went up by one block and the refueling indicator turned off. that really surprised me. Ever since, whenever i'm out on a casual drive, I kept doing the same.
@krishna6239 - I'm not sure if that's that real reason behind my car giving me 12- 13 on city roads. But that's the only tip that I've followed and it definitely worth a try.
