    Great one buddy.... What was your speed for most of the trip and what was the rpm range... Do you drive with soft pedal or hard pedal...

    Usually I drive with soft pedal however on NH9 you can't drive with Soft pedal, you have to accelerate hard to drive. I was trying to keep RPM range from 2500-3500. Mostly I was driving on 4th gear only due to traffic.

    I got lesser mileage due to worst roads only or else I get 17+ mileage.

    I used inst. consumption of MID to optimize greater mileage it really helpful. I want auto in my car now. The AC is too effective so at times i need to use only blower. Thanks to AC upgrade.

    Dear Punto 1.2 owners,

    Can you please let me know the mileage of Punto 1.2 with Ac and non AC? In city and in long drive?

    Did you feel any issue with 5 person in the 1.2 ? Did you feel it's underpowered?

    Yes AC on & 5 person in 1.2 Punto feels underpowered when you overtaking, in GHATs. However on highway with less traffic its fun to drive. Very silent engine, no noise in the car.

    Thanks.

    Can you pl. let me know ;

    1> What do you mean by "Ghat Road"?
    2> So, the main question still open: What is the mileage of 1.2?
    3> As 1.4 E is stopped so if I go for 1.2 then should I expect underpower/low pulling power with 3 persons commonly) (5 person rarely) in the long weekend drive?
