I average about the same FC (city driving) on my 6th gen Accord 2.3L AT. My old Exalta Grandeur did have fits of bad FC but 7 Km/L was what I remembered.
    From what i hear, that Lancer model has poor FC really. My officemate has an 03 model and she gripes about 6km/l in her city driving.

    yes, my 2003 cedia lancer cvt thinks it's a crv... why i bought it in the first place despite its fuel inefficiency rep, is a long story. but wifey likes its ergonomics.. madali pumasok at lumabas kahit naka-long gown.. i'm stuck with it. but in fairness, it does drive ok.
    i also have a 1997 sentra ex. yes, it also is a little big on fuel and the back side is a bit cramped, but it is relatively problem-free.. besides, i lost the original CR and can't sell it just yet.. heh heh.
    but being a family man myself, my most worry-free drive is the diesel auv.. had a revo and besta once, now an innova. the relatively big passenger size does give me a feeling of confidence..

    * nujsimon: thanks for your advise sir, i respect that.

    *Egan101 and GTi: nice inputs sirs. Appreciate it.

    *vinj: this is a goid FC. Coming from my Exalta at 7.5 kpl.

    *dr.d and MikkiW: Worse pala FC ng cedia compared to sentra GS sir. Thanks for sharing.

    So, it seems sentra GS is a better choice. Thanks for all the inputs.

    *peterstarr - what Exalta do you have? Yung B14 Exalta STA (1999-2000) ba? Also, what model year of the Sentra GS are you looking at?

    The Exalta engine is somewhat lethargic compared to the first gen GA16DEs from the B13 Sentras. My 2001 Sentra B14 151 (it was a limited edition model that resembled the Exalta) had the basic bolt-ons (intake-headers-exhaust) and would achieve 8-9km/L consistently as long as i was prudent on the gas pedal. The guzzler was our 1999 EX Saloon a/t as it was underpowered. Our 2001 N16 Grandeur also hit 8km/L at the average.
