For me petrol car yesterday i use haf tank doing most lup sup trips.

Me is 1 tank 520-540km one. If keep drive like that 2 days pump once.

If i do cherry and cbd, 1 day less then 200km. Can tahan to 2.5-3 day then pump.

So in summary if hybrid u do lup sup if petrol car then choose wisely cos boh battery to tahan your mileage.

This one i dun quite agree.

You see, fc the calculation also uses how far you travels. How can short trips causes lousy fc? At most drop a little then usual (due to start stops) sometimes even jam worst. 1 long trip end up 30-45mins to reach (if one end to another) and fare also not high.

But you see ah, u travel long distance dun have start stops? Even if use expressway also have especially pie during daytime (i dun drive night cos family time).

And for that miserable $1x fare u travel so long distance only to wait for next ping. I do cbd 1-2 trips already cover 1 long distance trips and each trip less then 4km apart.

The only bad thing about focusing cbd trips is you need lotsa of patience to wait for one to come to you and your AR will drop like birdshit.

The only thing you can argue is doing long distance maybe earn a few dollars more then i do a few short cbd trips. But i dun get so pek chek with bad traffic out there. Soon soon traffic in cbd (afternoon u rarely see jam unless got accident or road works).

Long trips wih surged fare is worth to do else i rather do short trips.

Means u don't understand the mechanics of how fuel is burnt.

Let's say car running at 2000rpm for 10min, you peng steering in CBD, maybe cover 4-5km. On expressway, maybe can cover 10km.

The car is burning the same amount of petrol for that 10mins at 2000rpm.

So u used the same amount of petrol to do 4-5km in CBD is similar to driving 10km on expressway. Start/Stop waste more petrol as u need to stop and wait, burning petrol but not moving.

Technical aside u also never read what i posted.

The situation is daytime on expressway there is also lots of start stop also.

I am not night time driver and your theory applies if driving on night time cos 10km is almost non stop but u try drive non stop 10km (if thats even possible) on pie on a busy weekday afternoon as compare to i drive non stop 3-5km in cbd at the same timg (except traffic lights). I dun think my 2-5pm cbd driving is as bad as driving on expressways same timing.

Worst is to get stuck on expressway jams.

this is based on my experience, maybe the pros can advise

last time when i driving for U, i ping pong town (cbd to orchard, orchard to orchard, etc) my fc is really bad.

when i pump abt 35L of petrol, my mileage can only hit 834km-840km.

but when i was driving for G, the mixture of trips (long and short), my fc seems better. when i pump 35L, somehow i can drive up to 900km.

i am driving a prius hybrid, that why so high mileage
Wow your FC for Prius very good. Mine 35 litres at most 750km nia.

Nowadays Grab give me quite a few times pick up 8 to 10mins away. I rather take long trips then short trips sometimes.

I know some of you will reject, can't blame.

Drive so long already. Should know which time which expressway got jam, cannot go one. All things/jams being equal, longer trips make more $$ than short trips. You time from the moment you start engine till you PK. Monitor and you will see the light.

Talk is easy leh but in reality if u kena west to east (or reverse) try not using expressways at that timing. Street levels u also kena start stop traffic light even worst.

Might as well say everything u say or do is in ur favor bcos m sure if i say cbd a lot of scrubs loves making driver wait for that miserable $6 then u gonna say no leh mostly pick n go as they r already at the pickup point.

If u can keeps on getting stuck at expressway daytime non peak hr, u r probably in the wrong lane, 1 of the slow drivers or a hogger that kena play by other drivers.

Ur miserable $6 costs u 15mins to earn including ur wait time at pickup n maybe next ping still have to keep waiting or choose while people 30mins finish $18.

On the other hand, u happy can liao. No point arguing with u. I PSLE, U degree. Sure can do better things.

To summarise.

What kind of car using?

What time u driving?

Diff driver diff strategy.

Mine case is i want to avoid crazy expressway jam from 2-5pm and me using petrol car dun see too much drop in fc like hybrid car driver who is used to high mileage
