Default Re: ► "Official" Fuel Economy Thread (Tips and Questions)

Hi everyone,

I have a 2010 1.2l manual Jazz (Fit in the US) and I have not measured the FE by topping up the tank. I just go by the computer FE figure. However, the figure I get is (currently) 24.1 kmpl and the max I got was 26.2 kmpl (over a distance of about 280 kms). This translates to about 57mpg to 62mpg.

I recall reading somewhere that the computer calculated mpg figures were very optimistic. I wanted to ask if anyone had compared their manual calculation to the computer figure and how accurate(or otherwise) they were.

Be sure your tank IS full. Due to the placement of the FIT's tank and the design of the filler neck you need to "burp" your fit. What do I mean by burp? Fill up until the gas pump clicks off. At this time you should be able to get another 1.5 to 2 gallons into the tank. <snip>.
Doesn't this throw off the calculation?
I am assuming you now have more gas in the tank than the trip computer is expecting? (basically, full = "Full", full + 1.5 gal still = "Full").

Hi,

I've got 2010 Fit Sport AT, and now in winter and 100% city driving in D position of gear box i received 22 MPG and in S mode 24 MPG, always shift at 2-2,5k rpm is it normal ?
Av distance 3-6 miles.

Before Fit i've got Abarth Grande Punto (160HP@230Nm) in the same conditions was 28 MPG.
Fit is nice car but i think something is wrong...
