I purchased a Honda Dio moto-scooter in August 2014 last year, mainly for work commute purposes and I’ve been trying to monitor its mileage performance for a while since then. This post is about my observations, and some mileage data that may help others quantify their own purchases. I’ve so far consistently gotten an average of 52+ kilo-meters, per litre of petrol, which is very satisfactory.
Below are some of the mileage charts from data I’ve collected via Fuelio app since March/April 2014 till August 2015.
- I try to brake as less as I can, preferring to drive slower instead when I can judge a signal or jam coming up, and gradually halting at such points when possible.
- The lower two points of the Fuel Consumption charts represent a period of driving where I had to brake a lot more (more erratic driving style than usual).
- I do my best to stay in speed limits, and in the economy range (35-45 km/h).
