Switch off the AC button when the car is cool enough. This applies to cars without climate control. If the car is equipped with automatic climate control, set the car to optimum temperatures to prevent the compressor from running for a long time
Amruth Ganesh LOL Even the ARAI certified mileage is lesser than that
what’s the meaning of carpool?
Akash Shetty go google it
Smartly use the AC means we should avoid keeping AC ON on signals,you can also keep AC power at min here… lower rpm lower AC…at higher rpm it doesn’t matter
thanks DWS for nice tips.
Even Better, Keep the Damn Rickshaws off the road, No congestion, No road rage, No frustrated Drivers, No Bottle necks, even the BEST drivers are very calm and better fuel average, I realised our problem really is Very High percentage of Idiots on the Street, and not an inadequate road infrastructure.
I try to switch off engine when stopping at a light or when not in use for more than 1 min. I try to avoid minimum use of AC. This can also help in saving some amount of fuel.
gud thinking g.
MY CITY GIVES 17-18 AVERAGE….
Bye Bicycle…. good exercise…. no petrol… no toll… no pollution…. no parking charges…
please give some tips for byke riders also…………………….

(1)put soft pressure on Accelerator.. pressurize the accelerator only…[Read more]
a fuel and money consuming honda is a myth!!! my city needs a servicing after 10000 kms and it cost less than my santro!!! and its a fact!!
same experience here…
My Honda City 2010 is more efficient than my Hyundai I10 (1.2 kappa) 2009…
From i10 i can get max. 17 km/ltr (with WIDER TYRE set)..
Its all depends upon the Engine’s Power to Weight Ratio, Tyres, Gear ratio, Aerodynamics, Suspensions etc. etc.
@Abhi Jeet,@Amruth Ganesh,@Ajay Srinivas Raghavan…
Did YOU ever have a chance to drive HONDA CITY i-vetec (NEW model)??
Dont confuse between Honda CITY and Honda CIVIC…
ARAI approved CITY for 16.6 Km/ltr
and CIVIC for 11.2 KM/Ltr.
And for your KIND INFORMATION, i will soon upload the Photo of my HONDA City’s Digital meter showing more…[Read more]
Carpool: if more than one persons daily travelling from same way than instead of using separate vehicle use one
interesting to read but very difficult to follow.
thanxs nice tips.
let me follow it……….
Best useful Tips.
I too get 17.5 kmpl sometimes from my honda city iv tec.
drivin at de speed of 40-50 wil give u gr8 milage…
Alto k10 owners are still, least worried..!!!
Hey… for bike owners… use better engine oils… timely change the oils and use high performance oils… they improve performance and better accelaration…. Maitain an optimum speed always while riding, for eg: for FZ or Fazer, you get 40+ only if u control and ride at speeds of 45 and 50…. 60 and above dips the efficiency….
And better, dont use performance kits and filters… they can drink the petrol sometimes that when you sometimes hit above 90 or above, the efficiency might be way below 20 sometimes…
24.6 kmpl on verna crdi 1.6- highway
29.3 kmpl on highway for my new Dzire VDi & 25.7 kmpl in city driving… following all the tips for fuel efficiency. Never drive above 80kmph.
Could u give me an idea about fuel injector cleaners. How to use them and their price?. Thanks in advance.
I BOUGHT A ALTIS DIESEL, good choice, The more the hike, the bigger my smile, and My Neighbour bought an Altis V Petrol with Auto (It does not seem to move out of the compound much now) and was replaced by OPTRA Diesel.
Hi Dws Auto, I don’t think VW Jetta and Passat has petrol models….
now its time add diesel car in garage.
@arun old jetta and passat had petrol models…..
In punjab, price of petrol is Rs.74.
pls drop the question . . . The person with a sedan dsnt cr about fuel price hike. . . . .
I think people who maintain sedan/suv cars in india they never think about the prize hike.
why dnt people think abt CNG. MUCH CHEAPER THN PETROL AND DIESEL.
@Bharat and Rohit
CNG’s safety is low plus gs powered engine life is not too lon,
in the end of day petrol, diesel, CNG all have stand equal,
maintaing diesel car is not too easy plus it only have high torque at low rpm
not high power
soon india will redefine automobile technology by introducing Bio h20 Fuell cell powered Automobiles
diesel cars are good choice even if diesel price is rising.
I HAVE HONDA CITY ITS AVG JUST 13.5 KM, HOW CUM ITS 17 KM/LITRE? STILL M NT BOTHER ABOUT AVG AS I M DRIVING WORLDS BEST PETROL ENGINE TECHNOLOGY AND I BEAT LL DIESEL SEDANS AND PREMIUMS IN RACE OVER HIGHWAYS..:)
