However, there are several forumners over N brand thread that kept claiming that their Sylphy could get 12-14km/L in heavy city traffic and better than 16-20km/L in highway that seems exaggerated. Also, some of them are even claiming that their X-Gear and Lavina 1.6L without VVT yet tuned to generate 150Nm@4400rpm with vehicle weight of 1160kg + 4AT gearbox could achieve 15km/L easily beating the lighter Vios 1.5 with VVT.
What do you guys think? False gimmick or else?
With a bit of control driving, the best that I achieved was 17.5km/l during last month trip back to my home town for Nissan Grand Livina 1.6 (A) - 6 months old (mileage abt 7k)
To be precise, this was achieved with following scenario :
1) 4 adults + 2 kids + some luggage
2) average speed 90 - 100 km/h
3) Driving during night time
4) Air cond on at level
5) 95% highway with about 10 traffic lights along 175km distance
Also managed to acheive 22km/l for my civic 1.8 4 yrs back with 2 adults load and using RON 97 petrol. But nowaday only able to achieve 16-17km/l (the best) with same condition but using RON 95.
Ready miss old day where RON 97 was selling at current RON 95 price. The RON 97 deliver smoother driving experience compared to RON 95, my view
