    I have got a similar average of 27.1 kmpl for 17 Km distance. if i drive carefully at a constant speed the car easily gives mileage of 22-24kmpl...... On the other hand this beast never gives mileage of >14 when driven at >150 kmph......

    Yes, If we drive with RPM between 1600 - 1900 and speed ranges between 60 - 90 constant. MJD will surely give any thing more than 22+. And also it is rev happy if sudden power is required.

    I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but my car is just a week old, driven about 500 Kms, and the mileage I am getting is just:

    City - 12.7 Kmpl
    Highway - 16.5 Kmpl

    Is it too premature to worry about mileage?
    Can you suggest what I might be doing wrong or can do better to improve the fuel efficiency.

    Don't worry about your mileage now. It will increase after first service.

    Try using the instantaneous average display while driving and change driving style accordingly.
    The average would display maximum of 50 kmpl at around 1500 rpm without pressing the Accelerator
