i agree with slbeh as it all depends a lot on your driving style, keep your RPM at 2000 when driving, you might get good FC, on highway when i travel from KL to malacca, my FC is very good, (can't remember how much is the L/100km, Wink Wink )
however, for 100% highway driving, accent FC is good. only problem is when city driving, the FC not so good, coz' of traffic-jam and engine idling for a long time can cause high FC.
cheers

Agree on that. But I noticed that if drive under 2000RPM, there is no pickup power. Accent is performing very good in 2.5KRPM to 3KRPM.

I think SlBeh means OD on, last time he told me that Accent not require to play around with the OD like others car did, just let the OD always on. Its because accent A/T got Skip Shift, Grade & Fuzzy logic Fuction, so only need to press accelerator harder to shift to lower gear. Wink
If a guy always off the OD all the time, i think the guy should think that the petrol is very cheap for him Laughing Just joking. Smile

I myself also feel its not neccessary to play with the OD switch. I can easily shift gears by just playing with the accelerator pedal. Press half to downshift one gear, Press futher to 3/4 downshift another gear. That time the engine rpm should rise quite high then made a loud sound like a sport car. Evil or Very Mad Other car heard that sound then give way for you to overtake, its very powerful sound from engine. Twisted Evil I came across this when im going to Banting yesterday. Crying or Very sad Not like others protons just got loud sound (Muffler exhaust) but the car accerelate slightly faster to overtake ppl. Laughing
