    Hi Fiatians - I successfully completed 5000 kms(after having the initial problems) and my car is due for the 1st free service. I have booked the slot on 23rd of this month. And i need your suggesstions before giving my car for service. Following are small problems that i have.1. Iam not feeling the turbo opening. As per the reviews of TFI it should open at 1700 rpm but iam not getting the feeling of it if iam driving alone also. 2. Some hissing sound is coming under the car(back side of the car) in the idling as well. 3. Iam getting the mileage as 16kmpl(including city and highways.)-->here suggestions required to get more mileage. coz some fiatians are getting more mileage.

    I forgot to mention i have booked the service slot at KHT motors bangalore

    Regarding Milegae:

    Be gentle on the accelerator...gradually increase speed.

    I have done 3200k in my punto and getting 18-20 kmpl on highway depending on speed

    for >110 i get 17.5
    for 80-100 i get 18-21

    in city depending on traffic i get 13-16

    U can change ur driving style by looking at the instant mileage indicator.

    I havent noticed about Turbo.....will check out

    Thx.. prashant.. got it. What about the turbo starting..and hissing sound under the car(from back side). Even the car is not moving that much smooth.

    I think we need other TFI members to comment on turbo ....i also feel that turbo is kicking in after 2K rpm
  8. Turbo kicks in after ~2000-2200 rpm. You can sense a surge (e.g. while overtaking). I would still let experts confirmed on the Turbo details :). Mileage is purely based on driving conditions. Yes Instant Mileage Indicator is best to adjust your driving style. For trip A, it is after the Avg. Mileage indicator. The avg is also different based on driving. Like most of the guys or like mentioned in most of the post, ads etc. city vs. highway, you can reset the counter and check avg. I would suggest drive somewhere ~100+ km to get a decent indication about mileage. You will get good mileage with 4th and 5th gear and below 80 Km/hr speed.

    ccprakash hissing sound from back part of car is normal. it comes from the fuel pump under the rear passenger seat(black cap under the rear seat)
    For feeling turbo kick just push the accelerator heavily when rpm is above 1800 rpm. The kick is very mild and unnoticeable when you are light on pedal
    Overall mileage of 16kmpl with ac on all time is OK. I get around 11-13kmpl with ac in city and above 19 in highways with ac. Without AC in city i get above 15kmpl and in highways above 20 kmpl always.
