    Nope, no manual reports over there either.

    This week is going to be one most km's I have driven in six days and I'm feeling it already. Yesterday I rode my XR650R to Bell Vegas and back and my tailbone is sore from that and today I drove my daughter to swim camp at ahmic lake and initially started out on a mileage run as it's my day off and we were in no rush. The average liters per hundred km was at 6.0 since new as I never reset until today. The first thing I have to say is the difference between the micra mileage with the Windows up vs. Down is ridiculous. The average liters per hundred km was at 4.5 when I turned on to hwy 11 at which time things changed and it got all autobaun on me so I figured the mileage run was over so down came my window (more for the high armrest then ventilation it was comfortable with the blower on cool) and we ran about 120 kph to Burkes falls and then 100 kph the rest of the way. On the return trip it was different however as I got behind a Chrysler 300 and we traveled from Burkes falls to south of Gravenhurst between one twenty and one fifty the whole way. I followed the Chrysler down hwy 169 to south of Orillia at which point he stopped for gas and I continued on to Peterborough. My tank was almost full when I started and I made it the whole way.

    150 kmh? it must have been at a pretty high RPM at that speed. Since your computer is giving 5.6, I am guessing it was around 6.4 actual. The only way to know for sure is to track it with a proper software like fuelly.com.

    No not at all. When a manual micra speedo says "150" the tach is only at 4500 rpm. Your automatic likely shifts that high when floored from a slow speed like on a on ramp or something. The 150 is in quotes because we all know when the manual micra's speedo says 150 kph you are not going 150 so therefore you are correct all of the mileage numbers are wrong but I use it now anyway because it is easy and you can still see improvement once a baseline is set. The civic that I use to race on the dirt oval when set up properly would rev 9250 rpm on the straights and between 7750 and 8000 in the corners and that is wide open throttle in second gear on a 1/3 mile oval 99% of the way around only letting off of it when entering the corner for maybe half a second and turning laps in the high 18 to low 19 second range. Than works out to over a 60 mph average and much faster on the straights than the corner. I just cant picture doing 75 or 80 mph in second gear in a micra! If you want to hear some micras reving 6 or 7 grand for sustained periods of time head up to mont tremblant this weekend or for the micra meet sept. 26 27th. I'm going there Saturday to take some pics and scout the place out.

    Here is a screen capture from an app on my phone.
    (Note: I cannot keep the revs down to an efficient range, IT JUST IS NOT FUN!)
    ALL city driving, most during heavy traffic. 5 speed.

    I was just saying this because at 150kmh there is no way your car will do 5.7 l/100km, even taking into consideration the car is not actually going at 150.

    See the chart for the actual fuel consumption per speed here:

    http://micra-forum.com/showthread.ph...S-5-spd-manual

    At that speed, the automatic Micra should probably have a better fuel economy than the manual but both should be really BAD, more like 8L/100km.

    If I had a manual, I too could not drive it the eco way..it's just not fun. With the automatic, I don't care much.
