Fuel Economy of Vehicles

What is the fuel economy of your car?

I drive a Honda City with 1.5 liter i-DSI engine, and I get 14.5 km for every liter of gasoline.

Blogger Meediexiang also drives a Honda City, but her car is equipped with a 1.5 liter VTEC engine. She recorded 11.3km/liter.

So, it looks like i-DSI engine really saves fuel, just as the auto giant claims. But of course there are many other factors which determine the gas mileage. Maybe Meediexiang drives like her idol – Kimi Raikonnen.

Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle is said to get 48 miles per gallon, or 20 km per liter . The oversized GM Hummer, which has also hit the roads of Malaysia, gets just 14mpg, or 6km/liter .

    the reason i got a vtec is because the interior is black !! lazy to take care of the cream color interior mar...

    furthermore, my house to work place is less than 10km so, not much of a problem lar :p
