    First drive out on my Linea for a run of 60 km. Got a FE of 7.9 kmpl (highway drive), with some 10 minutes jam.

    Something's wrong !! for a diesel : that FE is way too low. Even with 100 minutes of traffic jam you should have got better figures

    The worst you expect from a diesel is 13 kmpl

    @Atul- What's the average speed being displayed on the MID? That can give some info.
    Also, have you reset the trip A and B both at least once after bringing her home from dealership?

    Mine was showing 9kmpl I think, as the mechanics used her as AC room for 1 week whenever they got opportunity of filling diesel on the pretext of PDI(My GP stood there at dealership workshop cum mini stockyard at the dealership for 1 week after it was brought there from the stockyard). Although the PDI incharge was quite vigilant and very hard working, his mechanics and workers were a bit lousy. Saw the mechanics twice sitting inside and fiddling with various controls and gadgets for time pass. PDI was just a formality.

    It is normal.
    The car is in run-in period
    It hasn't got 1st service yet
    Average speed is lower, the car being new

    FE will increase after 1st service and 3000km on ODO.

    ^ +1
    It is too early to figure out the fuel efficiency. If you go through the FE chart I had posted earlier in this thread, you can see that before 5000kms the FE rarely went above 16kmpl. After 5000, it has rarely come below 16, and after 10000, it has mostly stayed above 18.
    So give it some time and be easy on the right foot. :)

    Average speed displayed on the MID is 12

    I had also not reset the trips after bringing her home (although my Linea did not wait more than 1 day since she arrived in the stockyard).

    Thanks a lot for the replies :)

    There you go. Av. Speed=12. Diagnosis made.

    It's the "New Car Effect". We tend to be over cautious at the time of the initial few drives and average speed is in the range of 10-15kmph. ::D

    Don't worry.
    Reset it at least once. Both trip A and trip B. And start again. FE will improve after 5k on ODO and 1st service as told above. ::T
