  1. Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    My MID shows anywhere between 11.9 to 12.5 with average speed of 25kmph 100% AC. Recently i've been getting around 8-9 due to driving on water clogged roads and B2B traffic in hyderabad took me 40 mins to cover 3kms.Guys is there any way to stop car from stalling on a water clogged road other then accelerating even when stopped.Here in hyd you sometimes have to drive through 6-8 inches of water

    those are amazing figures for a sedan. Punto easily gives 20+ on highways. wonder why maruti still holds the tag of most fuel effiecient cars. its only a myth.

    The standard procedure to keep the car from stalling while wading through waterlogged area is to put it in first or second gear and keep the rpm high. The danger zone is when the tail pipe get submerged. The only option is to avoid those areas or fit a snorkel

    Hi Guys,

    I have done 2600Km till now. First service was done last weekend.

    My Punto 1.3MJD is giving 11km in Gurgaon City traffic.

    I feel this mileage is very low. While the first service also i mentioned this to the service advisor.

    He told me after first service the mileage will increase, But i feel there is no change in the mileage.

    Can any body tell me what should i do now???

    Cheers
    Vijay

    Vijay,
    you could have the air filter cleaned/replaced (it must be cleaned recently during the servicing)
    Check tyre pressure maintain 30-32 psi on cold.
    Change the petrol pump where you re-fuel (if you suspect the quality at the current pump) :thumbs down
    The daily traffic situation might be responsible for the low FE :A
    Finally, you could change your driving style* may be its one of the factors.. :confused
    *try driving looking at the MID instant consumption (if you dont) this has helped me a lot.. ::T

    Have you calculated your highway FE?? how much is it??
    If its around what every one else is reporting, then it must be the traffic conditions responsible.

    Hi Chaos. Thanks for your suggestion. This will be helpful for all the guys who will go through this thread :clapping .

    Today i have been to the service center. Repoted the problem.

    The service advisor adviced to do a Highway Road test of 40km.

    The result was good. The mileage given was 20.33Km/L. I was totally impressed with the result :wow

    The reason for the very low mileage in city condition is due to the Gurgaon traffic :uh .

    Anyways have to live with it. Nothing can be done here :thumbs down .

    Cheers

    First I thought, just 17.2 kmpl on this average speed. Then I saw its FIRE, wow.
    I posted at one place, Punto FIRE will give more than Getz diesel, you proved me correct. :rage
