  • Expert Hi,
    Ask the driver to maintain constant speed and follow the rpm meter while accelerating.

  • What you've heard is correct, City ZX gives the best mileage between 1500-2000 RPM. The trick is to switch to a higher gear as soon as the RPM needle touches 1500 RPM in the first and second gears, and 2000 RPM in third and subsequent gears. This also means that the maximum speed the car would go upto is 70, beyond this the RPM would exceed 2000 RPM.

  • very funny question, rpm always goes up with spped you cannot drive honda city at the speed of 60 to maintain the rpm it is better if you switch to alto or maruti 800 or put cng in your car, if you want good milage dont drive rashly or above 100 you will get good milage, ppl who suffer milage problem dont know how to switch the gear at right rpm if you learn this you will get good milage

  • Every car's engine has a certain RPM at which it runs most efficiently. But you cannot use a guideline as a regimen to drive only at that engine speed. The best savings are when you don't drive the car!

  • Always keep the right tyre pressure,ask ur driver to do a simple thing of not going above 60 kmph in the city and 80-90 kmph on the highway.Ask him to avoid excessive gear changes and move in as high a gear as possible as higher the gear lower the rpm.It is bullshit if ppl say that to get good mileage u have to drive slowly,u can get good mileage even at 120 kmph provided u maintain a steady speed with very few gear changes..The city is a fuel efficent car so don't worry and relax..
