city driving 7 to 8km/lt

pure highway - 14 to 15km / liter kaya ni Liv

size 16" mags @ 205/55s, 36 psi

I guess may tulong yun skirts / spoilers / and magswheels sa aero dynamic ni GL sa highway.

Yun engine oil and spark plugs ko eh yun free na bigay sa akin ng dealer ko, hangang 20k mileage free kasi.

AT GL ko.

Nissan GL Roadmaster
Date Acquired: June 2, 2010

Travel Details

-------------
Date: 06-12-2010
Time: Past 8PM
Route: Mindanao Avenue to Petron Lakeshore
Passenger: Driver only
Speed: 80-100KPH
Distance travelled: 66Km
Gas consumed: 3.37L
FC: 19.58 Km/L

Going back to QC ...

Max. Speed: 120KPH for about 10Km
Distance travelled: 89.4Km
Gas consumed: 5.109L

Changed aircon setting from 2/4 to max for about 20Km.

HUD comes in handy when maintaining RPM to 2.5 and below plus the 'beep' at 100KPH.

Forgot to add, my GL is AT, aircon fan speed for both trips is 1, 'sagad' when re-fuelling.

----

First long trip to Clark last week, 11.5Km/L, with hataw to 140 and 5 passengers.

Sunday last week from last gas station at NLEX to Commonwealth, 13.5Km/L., 5 passengers.

City driving na puro traffic, 7.5Km/L, 2 passengers.

Last Saturday I went 8. Sunday si misis nag 9.7. 5 passengers for both days.

----

I'll choose synthetic oil for my PM this Saturday. Break-in na! Thanks.

I'm having 1K PM this Saturday. Tanong ko kung ano yun current oil. Kung di pa synthetic i-upgrade ko. Malakas kasi sa gas pag traffic. Mukhang 7.5KPL ulit ako this week.

Dear All LOOPER’s
Just a few days back I requested NMPI to conduct a test drive to verify the Fuel Consumption of my GL .
The followings are the condition when we conduct the test drive:
• NGL-RME / AT
• No. Passengers : 4 consisting of 3 Adults ( ave weight = 70 kg) + 1 child ( 45 kgs )
• Time of duration : 11: 48 Am to 2:41 PM
• Top up fuel ( full tank ) at Petron Station after Susanna Heights ( SLEX) for starting point
• Top up fuel ( full tank ) at Petron Station after Susanna Heights ( SLEX) upon completing the route
• Fuel : Petron Super Unleaded
• Route: Petron Station - SLEX – Turbina – Star Hiway – Star hiway – Talisay – Star hiway – Turbina – Slex –Susanna Height – Petron Station.
• Shifting of transmission from “D” to “N” mode in some instances**
The following are results :
A. Time Start : 11:48
Location/Route: Petron Station /SLEX to Turbina Exit.
Distance Travelled : 22.9 km
Time elapsed : 23 minutes ( 11:48 to 12:11)
Ave. Speed: 60 km/hr
Max Speed: 85-95 Km/Hr**

B. Time Start : 12:11
Location/Route: Turbina Exit / STAR Hi-way.
Distance Travelled : 7 km
Time elapsed : 11 minutes ( 12:11 to 12:22)
Ave. Speed: 38.18 km/hr
Max Speed: 40 Km/Hr

C. Time Start : 12:22
Location/Route: STAR Hi-way / Farthest Exit point.
Distance Travelled : 42.8 km
Time elapsed : 32 minutes ( 12:22 to 12:54)
Ave. Speed: 80.25 km/hr
Max Speed: 85-95 Km/Hr**

D. Time Start : 12:54
Location/Route: STAR Hi-way Farthest Exit point / STAR Hi-way Talisay Exit.
Distance Travelled : 38.3 km
Time elapsed : 30 minutes ( 12:54 to 1:24)
Ave. Speed: 76.60 km/hr
Max Speed: 85-95 Km/Hr**

E. Time Start : 1:24
Location/Route: STAR Hi-way Talisay Exit / Near Talisay Municipal Hall / STAR Hi-way Talisay Exit.
Distance Travelled : 26.7 km
Time elapsed : 38 minutes ( 1:24 to 2:02)
Ave. Speed: 42.157 km/hr
Max Speed: 45 Km/Hr

F. Time Start : 2:02
Location/Route: STAR Hi-way Talisay Exit / Turbina Exit.
Distance Travelled : 14.2 km
Time elapsed : 18 minutes ( 2:02 to 2:20)
Ave. Speed: 47.3 km/hr
Max Speed: 50 Km/Hr

G. Time Start : 2:20
Location/Route: Turbina Exit / SLEX / Sussana Hts / Petron SLEX.
Distance Travelled : 28.2 km
Time elapsed : 21 minutes ( 2:20 to 2:41)
Ave. Speed: 80.57 km/hr
Max Speed: 85-95 Km/Hr **

Total Time Elapsed : 2 Hours , 53 minutes ( 11: 48 Am to 2:41 PM )
Total Distance Travelled: 180.5 km
Top up fuel: 10.67 liters
Computed KPL: 16.9166

NOTE: prior to this test run, the average KPL is just only 7 Km / liter. It seems that one factor here is the shifting of ” D” mode to” N” mode ( like a free wheeling mode). Am not sure if this practice of shifting from N to D / D to N is ok or not ??. any info about this??


TIPS as provided by NMPI staff:
A. While re-fueling, we can ask the gasoline boy to press only the stage “1” of the fuel Nozzle. In this case, the fuel flow rate is quite slower as compared to the stage “3” which they normally do if we do not ask them to press only for the stage”1”. These 3 stages, as they explained were related to the Flow Rate of Fuel from the nozzle to our tank. The higher stages, the faster it will flow and there might be more bubbles that will filled in our tanks?..so less fuel we will actually get.

B. Re-fuel during cool temperature of the day. The volume of the gasoline is directly proportional to its temperature.

I went to Apalit (fully fueled) and back today which covered a total of 138 kilometers traveled registering in the odometer reading. I had it refueled again afterward this PM at Petron White Plains and only consumed 5.65 liters which translates to 24.42 km/liter. Average speed in Nlex was around 80-90 km/hour. Not bad with 4 passengers on board, 3 adults and 1 child. Aircon was on all the time. My GL pala is automatic. Smile

Went to Quezon last Sunday morning and went back to Manila around lunch time. It took me almost 2hrs to go there and another 2hrs going back here. I traveled 200kms and consumed more or less 12.5 liters of Shell Unleaded gasoline. With synthetic oil on my engine I'm expecting to have probably around 18-20kpl but I only got 16kpl. Its not bad compare to my previous record of 14kpl but its better if I get more.

Do you guys have any suggestion or tips on how will I increase my mileage per liter of gasoline? Probably driving habits or technique on how to increase mileage, especially for those who already experience more than 20kpl..

Thanks in advance.

11.5 - 12 KPL city driving 24km one-way, 20,000 km. It has improved from 8 KPL @ 5K, to 9 KPL @ 10K, to 11 @ 15K, and now 12 @ 20K. If this continues, will be doing 28 KPL @ 100K...hahahaha! Seriously, just maintain a steady acceleration and minimize quick starts.

Went to Baguio last weekend, consumed more or less 41 liters in around 580kms. That's more than 14kms/liter.

Sarap paglaruan nung overdrive, siguro nga kaya pa tumaas nyan kung nagdahan dahan ako paakyat kaso nagenjoy ako kakapindot and si erpats mejo matulin din kya i need to catch-up.

Sarap i-drive ng GL natin ng long drive, not so small and not so big so tama talaga size nya. And I can say na tamang size ng engine ung nilagay nila.

Try nyo guys and lalo nyo maappreciate si GL. Even your passengers will.
