Rate My Car Fuel Efficiency by KingAzari: 7:20pm On Jan 07, 2020
Hello People,

Two days ago, I came back from Asaba by a 2004 Honda Accord, I4, EXL. Refilled the car to full tank with 6k naira at Ranoil Asaba. I was in traffic for about 3 hours after Ore, another 30-45 minutes traffic at Ibafo and Ojota and my ac was on for most part of the traffic impasse. Arrived home at Festac and balance of fuel as indicated by the fuel gauge is as below.

What do you guys think of the fuel economy of this car? Poor, Fair, Good or Excellent.

I was not so hard on the pedal as I maintained between 80 to 100 or 120 kph max.

that's the trick,fuel economy first depends on how you drive,on top gear same fuel was put in two cars,a four cylinder car and a V8 bmw,the four cylinder car was chasing and trying to match the beamer speed and cornering ability on the track and the fuel finished on the 4 cylinder car first

Op highway driving doesn’t consume fuel as city driving.

Fill your tank and do the same distance in your city then calculate to know your cars average mpg

YOu sabi cheesy

@Op, I won't calculate mpg this way by merely filling up and looking at gauge.
We need actual values:

Distance covered
Litres of petrol consumed.
