Most cars around promise mileages of 15 to 20 km per liter highway. Now assuming a 60ltr fuel tank this would mean at least 900-1200km on a single full tank meaning Nrb msa and back or kisumu Mombasa with something left in the tank
Discuss from experience.

I've done Nairobi - Vihiga (10 or so kms from Kisumu)and back to Nairobi, then another 5 days or so of 42kms daily on one full tank. Car is an Allion 1.5lt. Do the math


this is 16km/l or so, impressive lakini you were driving at what speed??


My maths give me;
Aprox. 370*2= 720+42*5 = 930
Now assuming 60ltr tank, then 930/60 = 15.5km/ltr

Not bad.

Why do people like premium petrol even when the car specifications indicate the vehicle is to use regular gasoline???

generally i was driving at around 100kph tho towards kisumu i was driving like a mad guy since i was running late (doing 120-140kph). There was also some rough offroad stretch around Kericho since rd was under construction (doing around 40-60kph)

@siringi, My advice on hybrids, only listen to reviews from those people who use/own hybrids. I use it and the analysis by Baraza to me is mis-information. With some few tips about use, the car is GOOD.

Only listen to someone who has owned a similar car, otherwise most Kenyans pass along lots of propaganda including huyo Baraza, he has not owned all the cars he reviews so his comments can be warped depending on where he read it from...

I will talk about Prius hybrid, the car is good, a friend of mine owns one.
The only problem will come when that Battery power pack needs replacement...his batt has been losing power/storage quite faster and the cheapest quote he has been told for a second hand power pack is a cool Vitz-price; Kes. 400K!
And the batt is imnported from Dubai.

However doing 24km/l is not far fetched!
You know you've made it when you get a parking space for your yatcht.
