I am highly disappointed with the mileage of Datsun Redi-Go, I was told that it delivers a mileage of at least 18 kmpl but I am getting only 10 kmpl in Mumbai city without using AC, why is it so?

Mumbai has been featured in the list of top 10 cities with the worst traffic conditions in the world. Traffic queues are long there and vehicles move very slowly. A car travelling through congested traffic tends to consume more fuel than one which is travelling at constant reasonable speeds. In congested traffic conditions a car consumes almost 20% – 30% more fuel than the normal traffic conditions. The critical issue is low gear ratios (gear 1-2) and higher engine revolutions which create a bigger load on an engine and demand on the energy source which is fuel.

So, if the dealer has told that your Redi-GO will deliver 18 kmpl then expect it to deliver around 12-13 kmpl in a city like Mumbai. You can improve your car’s fuel efficiency (10 kmpl) by 3-4 kmpl by switching off its engine where traffic is not moving for a little while and accelerate more gently at take offs.
