    Help needed ! I am only getting 7-8 average. just drove around 650-700 Km.. I checked the Tyre pressure but no improving. Please let me know what needs to be done more to increase fuel efficiency ?
  4. Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    Kulsandy, let your car run in a bit more, average usually increases after 1K kms. Like i said in my earlier post to Aniket what's the average speed as shown by MID ? most of the time average speed is the culprit.Don't worry about average much as far as i know punto comes with a milleage warranty from FIAT so if something is wrong they will fix it.

    It is too early to worry about average. Let it go beyond 1000km, 3000km is better. Any way have a look at the air filter and clean it if required.

    When left from mangalore MID showed 23.9kmpl but once i reached bangalore due to heavy traffic pileup @ Yeshwanthpur lost almost 2kmpl. :A

    Re: What's your car's Fuel Efficiency

    Hi Kulsandy,
    I was also getting the same mileage during the initial 1000 Km run, things were improved after the first service. Got 10 kmpl after that and after 2000km, I am getting around 12kmpl. All with 100% AC on city driving mode. Got 14, during Dombivili-Pune trip, despite the heavy traffic jam near Khandala.
    Don't worry, figures will certainly improve after the run-in period. Drive light footed and safely.
    Enjoy puntoing...

    brilliant figures for a heavy car like Punto. its better than the small cars which are claim to be the most FE car in india.
