Time for a much delayed update!
Had an opportunity to drive from BLR to COK with family and used the opportunity to do some data-logging.
Drive Details: 3 adults, 1 kid & ~40 kgs of luggage. Started at ~5:30 AM, Reached 4-Lane highway within next 10 mins. This was more or less a FE conscious drive (for some other data logging) with speeds kept between 100-120 as far as possible with just two bursts to 155 kmph to lose one nagging Scorpio..
Start @ 5:30AM (Vehicle parked overnight in the basement)
After 5 minutes of drive (Interior roads)
After 15 mins of drive (reached 4-lane expressway)
After 1 hr 15 minutes of drive
At 4hr 15 mins and ~350 Kms from start
Anything else that you guys thinks needs logging in this experiment?
It has been more than 1 month since we started this log. Will follow up with long term updates anyways!
