  2. Punto 1.4 Petrol Emotion pack.
    Kerala to Chennai on 4-Jan-2015. 650km. avg 17.1 kmpL as per MID. maintained speeds at 80-90 and never went beyond. (Just for checking the mileage possible. thats all. Not to say- most boring drive ever in the last 5 years, and not to repeat again :) )

    And once while in Kerala few days earlier, while keeping AC off, and same driving style, got 23 kmpL for Pattambi to Guruayur drive ( about 35-40kms of typical Kerala winding roads)

    I have the emotion variant which is heavier than the dynamic variant with the same engine characteristics. So, dynamic should give more mileage, though difference should be very minimal.
    Another update on mileage:
    I went to go to Muzzafar Nagar [U.P.] from Indirapuram, my place yesterday and came back today morning. TJet was driven enthusiastically for most part of the journey and I got mileage of 14.2. I monitored mileage on the highway run and it was hovering round 14.7 to 15 kmpl. There's a bad stretch[pot holed] of road around Modi Nagar which also contributed to lesser mileage than my Punjab trip. The run included 20 kms of city driving which had slightly dense traffic conditions. Overall, satisfied with the mileage and the grin is getting bigger due to the great ride. Those pot holed roads didn't bother, though I did slow down on those :)

    I think I should be able to get around 10 kmpl and I am fine with that. I didn't expect mileage on the higher side before signing up for the TJet, only wanted the drive to be fantastic which it indeed is beyond any doubts whatsoever!

    On long drives with typical dual carriage way which generally our highways are , my supernova always delivers 14-15 kmpl for the entire trip.
    It may include bad roads, a good patch, few traffic jams, city traffic etc..
    My indica also gives me same, the Jet being bigger, better but same economy is something really brilliant.

    They didn't like the Turbo in the earlier days, some went on to criticize it for lack of innovation in engines :eek:, but smaller engines need them even more for benefits of power/torque and efficiency/economy if tuned properly.

    It has been close to a month that I got my new Linea Tjet (2014 new model). Till now I have driven around 470kms. I have been driving the car sedately thus far. I timed a recent run of approx. 17 kms inside city and I saw the MID show an avg FE of 9.4 (100% AC) at the end of the trip.
    Is it expected for the FE to increase a bit after couple of thousands on the MID ?

    Yes, the FE will probably increase if you continue to drive sedately till the run in of 1k kms. Take the car on the highways and maintain respectable speed limits and you will definitely see the FE to be getting better.

    Do not get disheartened. FIAT engines are notoriously fuel efficient. On highways I regularly get 22+ and in city driving I get anywhere between 12 and 15 even 17, depending upon the stretch I drive on and traffic conditions and how much did I have to change gears and brake, etc.
