    pero with the cars I've tested/borrowed/rented.

    digital FC vs full tank method, halos +/-1km/l lang difference ko.

    kaya nagugulat ako sa claims sa 20+ kms/l "real world" ng local car reviewers.

    since they review cars and drive almost everyday, mas matipid kaya talaga sa gas kung sila nag drive?

    kasi sa Honda City ko na lang... best F/C na nakuha ko sa 20km/l (super effort yun)
    pero real world highway driving is 13-15 tapos 10km/l sa Metro Manila.

    yung NMAX ng officemates ko, best they can get is 35km/l sa city, pero reviewers are saying higher "real world" figures
    it depends on how the review-er did it.
    some will rely on the instrument cluster's computerized read-out.
    some will come up with their own figures, based on maneuvers only they will know.
    even some reputable furrin auto magazines will, at times, borrow from the manufacturer's brochure.

    but i have never, personally, equalled or bettered, these published good-lookin' km/li figures. i always ended up with less impressive numbers.

    So far, I get 9-10km/liter on average, city (NCR) stop and go driving.
    Ok naman na ata yun for a daily driver (gas) sedan?

    But compared to those used to SUV fuel consumption, baka superb na yun
    Paano pa kaya yung mga FJ (4.0 engine)???

    Believe it or not, mas magasto yung 2.7L vvti fortuner namin dati compared to our FJ. The fortuner gets 4km/L in light traffic and 8km/L in the highway.

    I do agree that it "normal" scenarios, the FC Digital meter/display shows at most a discrepancy of 3-5% per my experience. However, in not so "ideal" FC check scenarios in real world. I have gotten discrepancy of +/-10% to 15% from what the FC gauge displays. (idling persistent here due to traffic or "waiting in vehicle")

    The lower the FC Reading, the lesser impact that discrepancy would be. But if it were to come from the highway/mixed FC Reading, that most probably will have a more significant impact.

    Yung 20+kms/l, nakakagulat yun especially kung city driving or mixed conditions. If highway, I would like to know at what average speed that is supposedly taken at. But, yeah, even with a 1.5 to 1.6L gas engine, I have yet to achieve 20km/l actual FC via full tank method. 16km/l lang highest ko sa gasoline na highway exclusive driving while sa diesel na 2.5L at most was 14km/l pag highway only and this is keeping revs below 1500rpm para di sumipa yung turbo masyado. Mixed is 10-11km/l.

    sa akin pinapadala ng tropa ko yung Prado 4.0 nila pag mag long drive kami, i think same engine with the FJ? 1GR-FE. tinatamad kasi siya lagi sa long trips. compute ko is 6+ km/l lang highway, upsized yung wheels and A/T tires though so nagccontribute din yun.

    kusa nga lang lumiliko pag nakakakita ng gasolinahan siya naman nagpapa-gas so ok lang sa akin. i enjoy driving it everytime.

    i once got 18 km/li in my automatic diesel innova.
    while traveling at 60-70 km /li in the highway, i zeroed my km/li computer. it was instantly replaced by a reading of 18 km/li.
    it was an actual reading, in actual instantaneous scenario, but far from real-life everyday driving.
    heh heh.
    "cheat."
