Maximum Mileage from Maruti Swift
The YouTuber is curious about knowing what is the maximum mileage that one could sequester out of an already efficient Maruti Swift. For this, he goes to the petrol pump and fills the petrol up to the first auto-cut. He then starts his journey. The initial few kilometres on the travel forces him to get stuck in the hustle and bustle of the city. But within no time, he is out on a highway with relatively low traffic. This makes for the ideal testing ground to drive the car according to his will. He keeps the AC switched OFF and the car at a constant speed of around 65-70 km/h. All in all, he stopped for a snack break and on the toll plazas. In the end, the instrument cluster showed a mileage of a whopping 34.4 km/l for a span of around 189 km. But when the driver went back to the petrol pump, the mileage came out to be around 33.7 km/l which is immensely impressive. The driver acknowledges that this is not how one would typically drive on a daily basis. It must be noted that the ARAI-tested mileage figure of the latest Maruti Swift is 23.20 kmpl.
