    This is the first time I am seeing a MJD giving mileage less than 10.

    Yes it is 5.7 kmpl!

    potholed roads combined with rains in the evening lead to this!

    Ramesh, in peak hour traffic i get 8-9 kmpl quite often :)

    Shams, when did you reset the tripmeter bro? The more recent the reset, the less normalized the FE is. Asking cos your Fuel Gauge is full. :)

    EDIT: Just noticed that one trip distance is 14 odd kms and the other 6 kms. Any car would show similar figures given the distance and traffic. :)

    Mr detective :), Trip was resetted just after starting the car from office.

    14.7 km is the trip distance and 6 kmph is the avg speed for this trip :)
    sorry for the slightly blurred pics which led to confusion!!

    @shams your odometer looks a little different from mine. Have they changed it in newer models ?

    @Shams: Did you try to get a picture of the broken timing chain? If so, kindly share it here to get some idea of how a dying chain would look like.

    I could not take a picture because when I saw the broken timing chain, service center was about to close with most of the lights already off.

    However i remember how it looked and while searching on internet i could find the following picture which is very similar:

    today morning when i opened the bonnet of my car for filling up the wiper fluid tank, i noticed that the coolant level has gone below the MIN mark. Approximately one inch from bottom is left. Engine temperature guage didnt go beyond the halfway mark though.

    Called up SC to ask if I can drive till there without topping it up. Was told it shouldn't be a problem to drive till SC (around 15 kms). Leaving now to get it topped up.
