5 Fuel Efficiency Report of my Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi [Highway & City] + Wallpaper

Fuel Efficiency Report of my Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi..

Just a few days back I had made a post on how amazed I was by the fuel efficiency figure of 50.29 KMPL attained my Pulsar 220. That impressive figure was achieved on a trip which consisted mainly of an 86 Km run on the National Highway No.7, where there was minimal gear changes and braking, while riding at a sedate speed of around 60-65 Kmph.

So this time I decided to check how much my 220 would return by riding within the bowels of the city of Bangalore..

Thanks to thousands of Software Profesionals (like myself) who pour into the city every year, Bangalore is now quite famous for it traffic jams and crawling speeds due to traffic congestion. Although roads aren't that bad, the slow moving traffic really is a test of your nerves and patience.

After getting 50 Kmpl on the highway, 35 Kmpl in the city was a wee bit below my expectations..

After managing 50.29 Kmpl on the highway run, I was expecting something close to the region of at least 40 Kmpl for the city run. So I completed an enthusiastic 56 Km run within the city and went to the petrol pump to fill up the tank to its brim. This time 1.6 lts of petrol went in the tank.

So 56 Km divided by 1.6 gives 35 Kmpl..!!

After getting 50 Kmpl on the highway, 35 Kmpl in the city was a wee bit below my expectations. But actually 30-35 Kmpl was the mileage which I expect from bikes like Pulsar 200/220 and the Karizma. Nevertheless after walking on the clouds for a few days, this time I was brought down to the ground.


By the way, I took a picture of my bike on the National Highway no.7. It is in 1024 X 768 size and can be used as a wallpaper.


Wish you were there along with me on the trip...

Just to click my photo..!!

35kmpl is what i get on my 180 in city rides..But again it depends on the rider. By the way, have you experienced any thing skeptical with the paint on 220? Especially in the Tank cowl . Like peeling off or forming bubbles? I am not sure about this , but two of my friends having P220 is complaining about it. May be the odd problem with the batch sent to the dealer here.

Considering the fun I have been having on my Pulsar 220, 35 Kmpl is more than OK for me..

and no, there has been no problems with the paint so far

Not too bad, a little more realistic than before. Though Fuel Efficiency is like paysah, you can't get enough. But I think Fuel Economy is a greater concerm for cars drivers or people with cars and bikes. Saving money on fuel helps.
