your FC consider good my friend. i get average around RM0.19/km and my ODO reading is 11.xL/100KM... 100% city driving.

27 litre can last for around 250km.

as for fuel gadget, so far, we have added the Micro Compressor (refer to the thread "Micro Compressor") and HPIS Optimiser. so far so good...

FC is very much dependent on how you drive and driving conditions. if you drive through jam areas every day surely your FC will be higher than someone who drives on highway.

My sister gets around 360km to 370km on the Accent. 90% city driving.
