Verna Diesel 1.6 Automatic - Fuel Efficiency

Hi Fellow Members, Its been about a month and 20 days that I have bought my above mentioned car.
I have done approximately 3700 KMs till now, a combination of 65% Highway driving and 35% in-city driving.

This is the mileage I am getting from the car, so far:

In-city Driving -
13.5-13.8 KMPL

Notes - The last month and a half has experienced crazy traffic in Chandigarh with the festive season being there and the weather being pleasant.

Highway Driving -

In Plains
18-19 KMPL

Notes - I have done 3 major trips:
1. Chandigarh to Amritsar and back.
2. Chandigarh to Haldwani and back.
3. Chandigarh to Delhi and back.

The first trip gave me approx. 17.5 KMPL.
The second trip, owing to traffic snarls from Sonipat to Ghaziabad and then Rudrapur-Bilaspur strech,I got about 15 KMPL.
Delhi and back was a consistent 20 KMPL.

I'd put the average for these three trips at about 18-19 KMPL.

Hill driving
Uphill drives - 12.5-13 KMPL
Downhill drives - 19 KMPL

The drives have included about 3-4 trips to Kasauli/Solan.

I was interested to know:

1. How does it compare against:
a. Other Verna D Automatic cars.
b. Other D Auto cars.
c. Other Verna D Manual cars.


2. Can I expect the average to improve with time/more miles or will it remain constant now or will it go down?

3. Will using a fuel additive like System-D or something give me a better mileage?

Thanks!

this weekend, went for a long drive in my santro. Drove around 400 kms with 70 kms hilly, 290 kms on highway, and around 45-50 kms in city. Drove with AC off. But I am quite amazed with the mileage achieved. For the 407 km trip my car used 18.7 liters of petrol, which turns out to be 21.76. My previous best mileage in this car for past 8 years has been around 19.5.

Fiat Linea T-Jet :
city :11.7-12.5 kmpl in bumper 2 bumper traffic
highway: 14-17 kmpl, typical speeds 90-110kph

Micra CVT
city: 14-15.6 kmpl
highway: 16-18 kmpl., typical speeds: 75-100 kph
Interesting that the true nature of CVT comes up here, not a huge lot of difference in the figures, since CVT works to pull down the revs under all circumstances !!

Friends, Govt. Of India has revised the mileage that every car shall give w.e.f April 2017. The cars and utility vehicle are expected to return a Fuel Economy of 18.2 km/L which is about 15% higher than existing level.

"It will change the performance of locally manufactured cars. While some cars could be phased out, there would be a giant leap in technology that would come at no extra cost, but would allow improved engines and efficient cars on roads," said a senior government official working on the guidelines.
