Gas Guzzlers

Recommended Posts

I don't think that mileage will be affecting sales of high end cars.Come on' date='If you can afford the car I am sure you can afford the fuel to go with it.

It is true to buy some of the hardware you probably need your own oil well!  In the high end cars the depreciation, and servicing costs are far higher than any savings in the fuel costs due to somewhat better economy.

However, the 'kitna deti hai' mentality does not go away.

You've got to try the old Left Hand Drive Willys jeep model CJ 3B,petrol model, with a Carter make fuel pump and carburettor. This was availiable in our markets till 1967, straight from the US of A with many American parts. That gave  about 5 kmpl with the Hurricane engine. The Mahindra Classic 's body was based on this same bodyshell.

Did you own a Palio or are you just assuming?

The Palio 1.2 gives around 10kmpl in the city and the 1.6 around 8kmpl. My Palio 1.6 with extensive modification and high revs driving has never given me less than 8kmpl. The Palio is a much heavier car, is built like a tank and much SAFER compared to all the small cars around, hence the obvious drop in mileage.

Show me a SMALL car around with the performance and driving pleasure of a Palio 1.6!

Coming to the topic, the Honda CRV auto also had poor mileage.
