:57: normally the 12km/ltr is due to the fact that your car is brand new, wait till you have travelled 15000kms or more. also take into consideration the wheel size/inflation and the 18km/ltr claim is without A/C. happy driving
Sorry for having you waiting. You may not believe me but I consequently use 92 octane for both of my cars.
I read somewhere that low octane means low combustion, meaning low power. This again, means low consumption, unless you drive like mad
My experience is exactly that when using 95 octane I drive 18 - 20 km/l but when using 92 octane I can achieve an average of 22 km/l.
Something else is your driving pattern. I'm so lucky to live in a rural area meaning 30 km each way to work. 15 km with 80 km/h speed limit, 15 km with 110 km/h speed limit on high way. In practice this means speeds of 95 km/h respectively 125 km/h.
I've noticed that highway cruising makes the Pica thirsty. I believe it's due to its not very aerodynamic design :57:
Sorry I can't give you more specific details. This topic has been here as long as I remember. I can recall a member performing 23.75 km/l!
