    Hi All,

    What is the difference observed by the experts in the forum with the MID FE and actual FE (tank full to tank full method) in Punto?

    I have never checked the FE so far and my only source is the MID. I am consistently getting around 13.5 KMPL (as displayed in MID) in my GP E 1.2 in Navi Mumbai driving. Can safely assume that the drive is 50 - 50 Highway / City as part of the route to my office is through Palm Beach Road. I have not observed any major difference in the FE with or without AC.

    The difference I have observed is typically 0.5kmpl to 1.0kmpl. If the MID shows 13.5kmpl, then actual should be between 12.5kmpl and 13.0kmpl.

    Hi Friends,

    My Punto 1.3MJD Emotion has run 2900km. The mileage indicator shows only 6+ kmpl. (My drive included highways and village roads.)
    I checked with the dealer and they said there is no tuning required and the mileage will be increased after running some 6000 km.
    I was not able to digest it.. is it true ? Do we have to run some '6000km' for the engine to be 'set' ???
    I'm taking the car for the first service. Is there any tuning required ? or is it common with all Punto's ?
    Appreciate a quick reply.

    Are you sure it is kmpl? default setting is L/100km. If that is 6L/100km so you are getting over 16kmpl.

    Are u talking about the calculation via screen display FE or tank empty and full method.The second method of calculation is more accurate.

    How much fuel you have used? for 2900 km on 6kmpl you must filled up atleast 480 lts of diesel, i.e 12 times the tank full or ~19000 Rs expemditure on fuel.
    Can you substantiate ur 6kmpl this way? let us know pls.

    Thanks for all who responded. I was silly to ask it without doing any mathematics ( thanks Axn ).

    Varin11, I was looking at the display and saw this number.

    Anand3636 and Roy.. For sure, it will be that reason. I will refer the manual and change the unit. from L/100km to kmpl.

    ( I'm not near my car now. Car is at hometown and I'm at Bangalore )

    Thanks all for the response.

    I got it set by my brother. I'm happy to see a mileage of 17kmpl ( it has now competed 3000 kms )
