    I made 28.024 km/L myself last summer.

    The eerie part is how easily you can do it with the Jazz. It was a trip to Baliwag, Bulacan, and back to Paranaque. I had the A/C on, cruised at a steady 100 km/h on NLEX, and had the radio on.

    On the way back I was even overtaking other cars at 120 km/h so it's clear I wasn't even trying to attain maximum fuel mileage. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I gassed up again and saw the result.

    HTHs.

    Update on the Jazz.

    Needs new shock absorbers... :sad: = 14K... She might not bring it on long drives anymore.

    Any shock absorber recommendations?


    *type 100, hope we could get a mileage like that in Bukidnon where the road is full of potholes and hills.

    I've heard Kayaba (KYB) now makes shocks for the Jazz. Not much known yet on pricing though, but there are people who're supposed to bring them in by this month.

    Whew! This is something in my dreams!

    The best rate of fuel consumption I got from our 1.3L iDSI CVT is only 15Km/L. This was a drive from Las Pinas City to Lipa, Batangas via SLEX and Star Tollway to Commonwealth, QC and back to Las Pinas City.

    City driving is only 12Km/L for my driving style....

    i get around 12km/l city driving. may stints na D and S with 7 speed manual high rev driving.

    best consumption i got was 15.5km/l from manila - shell before kennon road. mostly in D but used 7 speed manual for overtaking.

    worst i got was going up kennon and driving around baguio. only got around 9km/l

    only negative thing i experience is going uphill from a dead stop. hirap na hirap.



    How I wish I could have driven our Jazz (same variant as yours, but acquired Nov2004) when we went up to Baguio last week. Pero, kasama ang mga bata and others kaya I used our Starex...

    Anyway, that's what I notice too in our Jazz, even for a MM stop and go traffic. It takes a while to move forward coming from a dead stop, so the typical reaction is to lunge (forward) and then, step (hard) on the brake so that you don't lose position in the traffic hustle...

    On uphill dead-stop situations, the handbrake is your best friend. ;)

    Although yes, I had the same "trouble" climbing the straight uphill roads in the Subic resort we went to last summer. My Jazz was fully laden with four people and cargo. I tried to maintain peak torque (2800 RPM) in first gear and it was moving all right, but at a pace best described as cautious.
