    Recommended Speed to our view :-

    Hatchback Car
    Start with 1st gear always. Many people have habits of starting with 2nd gear, which leads to loss of acceleration and mileage too. Then Change gear
    Around 10 Km - Shift to 2nd Gear
    Around 22 - 25 Kmpl - 3rd Gear
    Around 40 Km - Shift to 4th Gear
    Around 50 - 55 Kmpl - Shift to 5th Gear, if clear traffic and Maintain speed of 60 Kmpl for Optimal fuel efficiency

    Sedan Cars
    Same Logic of starting with 1st gear, the
    Around 10-12 Km - Shift to 2nd Gear
    Around 25 Kmpl - Shift to 3rd Gear
    Around 40 - 42 Km - Shift to 4th Gear
    Around 55 Kmpl - Shift to 5th Gear, if clear traiffc and Maintain speed of 60 - 65 Kmpl for Optimal fuel efficiency

    However, when you drive on highways - there you should maintain speed below 70 Kmpl for Hatchback and 80 Kmpl for Sedan for optimal fuel efficiency as RPM will be around 2000 RPM in Indian cars
