Aaah.. Look for one that is the lowest total weight n you are 50% there already. Just figure having 4 monster of 90kg in the car n going up to Genting.

To me to have a car which is fuel efficient, is depands on a few factor

1) Service your car - Use a good engine oil...use syntetic would be better (if u can afford it)
2) Service your Air Cond - This will help also
3) Make sure that your car tyre have thread and correct pressure.
4) Control your accerlation on your car.

This factor would contribute the most . Hard acceleration n braking is the culprit if all other factors are in their finest of condition.

CCY..i agree with you...even u have a very good fuel efficient car and you simply accelerate and brake (in KL no choice, as always traffic jam everywhere)..

Err...if the vehicle ya drive is quite fuel efficient by design n built...it would also deplete the purpose...when the vehicle is running with low tyre pressure most of the time...

Err...in some major cities outside of our oil rich country...engines of vehicles are required to be turn off during idling times...to cut down on exhaust polution n fuel consumption...

Ahem...by the way...the most fuel efficient vehicle would be the one that achieves the highest power to weight ratio...n the least in wind resistance...

Example...err...a bicycle. :D

Not bicycle lah. Not when someone is a fat blob - so broad body facing wind resistance you know. Also tyre will puncture all the time. haha

The newer Honda City, year 2002 version, not the latest one... it's "legendary" for it's fuel efficientcy... some claim it's even can travel more mileage on a single tank of petrol compared to a Kancil :D
Not sure about honda civic thou... :p

Another legendary fuel effiecient vechicle is the new Isuzu D-Max pickup. From KL drive up to Sg Petani, then down to JB, then return to KL with a single tank of petrol only! and still got some petrol left! The whole journey is audited with seals at the bonnet and the petrol tank to avoid foul play.. with an auditor travelling together. Normal driving with air-con on all the time.

Err...it has probably an 80 litre fuel tank...which more or less yields 750kms per tankful with an average travelling speed of 80km per hour...ahem...an impossible record breaking feat...attempting to travel a total distance of about 1,600kilometres...
