    I just picked up an Avventura 1.4 Fire Active. After much thought and going back and forth between the Punto 1.2 Dynamic and Avventura 1.4 Active, I finally decided to go with the Avvy. Although it took me a bit of getting used to the new engine, the clutch and hydraulic steering wheel (considering I have been driving Japanese machines till now), but once we were at peace with each other, the spin has been fun...

    Now for the questions -

    1. My digital ODO does not show mileage, temperature etc. It only shows Kms & Time, how do I set this.

    2. I am very confused on the mileage. What is the realistic mileage I can expect in a city like Bangalore?

    - The showroom guy said there was 5 liters of Petrol in the car
    - I filled it with another Rs. 1000 (roughly 16 liters)
    - When it hit the reserve mark (Orange light blinking) I filled the tank to the brim (roughly 38 liters)

    Now, the vehicle has run roughly a little less than 400 kms. The fuel indicator needle stands at the 3rd stop from E to F which is about quarter of the tank I am guessing (correct me if I am wrong). What is my Mileage??? Is it normal or should I get it checked???

    3. I fit a Blaupunkt Single Din Stereo. The head unit was not a straight fit, I had to buy a replacement aftermarket frame to fit the stereo, is this how it is to be done or is there a way I can still use my original fitment? (This is the first time I am facing such issues with basic fitment for a car, just worried if I doing it correctly.

    Congrats on the Avvy.

    you should wait for 2-3000 kms for the engine to set-in .and then mileage would be better .
    best thing is. Go on a long drive/leisure drive . you will complete the first few kms and get to know the Avvy's highway manners as well.

    You can expect 12-13km in Blore city . and 16 on highways .

    Thanks Sujit508. I just did my math and as of now I am getting a mileage of 8.5 - 9 kms in Bangalore city. Planning to hit the highway end of the month, hoping I get a better average there. But your point seems fair, I cannot rule out the fact that the engine needs to settle in...thanks again for your inputs. Will keep posting more on this as and when I experience stuff. Cheers!

    My car setting allow you to change the units. Please refer to the manual, you should be able to do it in a couple of mins.
