    Tata Manza (Quadrajet Aura ABS) clocked an incredible mileage of 46.33 km per litre. This feat has been achieved by Narayanan Menon, a resident of Coimbatore who has zoomed into the Limca Book of Records.

    Narayanan R Menon, Managing Director of Aromen Engineering Company and a proud owner of the Tata Manza has been certified for the remarkable drive on the Coimbatore- Avinashi by-pass on 25th of May 2011. Menon’s Tata Manza covered a long stretch of 72.3 kilometer on road by consuming only 1.58 liters of diesel, which translates to an incredible mileage of 46.33 km per litre.

    A mechanical engineer, Menon himself does not credit an amazing mileage to a ‘magic foot’ rather a combination of good driving and car maintenance. For a country where fuel efficiency is a significant factor for automobile ownership and with fuel prices increasing, the feat certainly bodes well for the mileage.

    thats probably just hyped because there are a lot of factors contributing to the mileage, because a lot of diesel is housed within the pipe from the tank to the engine, not to mention the return pipe from the common rail, all that said, the latest diesel technology is quite advanced and can produce magic figures if you are careful with the way you drive, like for example, i have a swift diesel ddis which did 32kmpl in city with me at the wheel, but the code of driving to accomplish something like that is just not feasable, i drove with all the windows up, without the air con, and the gear shifts were something like this
    0-10kmph 1st gear
    10-20kmph 2nd gear
    20-30kmph 3rd gear
    30-40kmph 4th gear
    40-50kmph 5th gear
    which means that most of the time in the city you are changing gears, but even with all that i wasn't expecting that kinda mileage figure. But that said, what this guy probably did is put it into fifth on the highway, and let it idle...!! Thing is tho, these figures are achieved in test conditions, with lil or no traffic, and lets be honest, we aren't going to let a rickshaw driver with his dhoti overtake us..! So yeah, you can do it....but tell you something...we will all do it for a day, and then get back to gassing it....because if we were those kinda drivers...we wouldn't be here talking about cars...;)

    Setting a mileage record and actual on road fuel efficiency are 2 different things.. Dont get buoyed down. Refer ARAI mileage as benchmark if one need to compare cars
