    Bot linea on 11th May and have already driven 650 kms , went to Bhimashankar and Pune, the drive was a pleasure, my Trip B meter shows average of 14.9 KMPL, is this the right reading or should i read it differently, less or more

    Welcome aboard and congrats on the purchase Neeraj.

    Post up pics of your Linea. Let us ogle at it. :)

    14.9 sounds pretty decent and it'll improve further as you clock more km's.

    Neeraj -Congrats on the purchase

    ODO meter is approx 95% accurate... when I measured GPS speed to that of ODO there was a 4kms standard variation in speed levels. i tested it in various places in 5 states and everytime it was standard...if ODO was showing 100kmph then GPS was showing 96kmph

    Fuel Economy is questionable as its indicative...correct depiction is tank full to tank full...i missed to do it on my recent 5000kms run...none the less...i believe anything above 14kmpl for FIRE 1.4 is decent and as it ages, you will get +2 to 4 more on highway run..

    hey congrats. happy to see a new 1.4 linea. 14.9 is easily achievable if you drive sensibly. you can get much better figures. regarding the fe reading i always found the actual figure to be 1.5km/l less than the odo. how about loads of pics for a treat.

    Neeraj,

    Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to TFI.

    We rarely see Petrol cars being brought in India with the prices soaring to all time high.

    That is an impressive mileage you got for the first 1000 KMS.

    Please treat us all with the pics of the beauty.

    Regards
    Vasu

    Red carpet welcome, congratulations and best wishes, Neeraj. Average consumption of 14.9 kmpl is very much achievable in petrol Linea.

    Neeraj a red carper welcome to the TFI, do post pictures of the car, yeah you may count +1 km more than the odo reading on long drives, Its good Fe you are getting and it speaks up the driving habit of the car as well.
