    My FE has dropped drastically off late. I am averaging 11-13 in city (With the monsoons on, Bangalore is a hell hole with jams and potholes) and 17-18 on highways. I am also noticing an increase in the engine sound. Would an oil change help this?

    My Punto90 MJD returning me city drive with AC all time gives me 15.1/kmpl. On highway i could see best is 16/kpml. On ODO till date 1600kms. SO waiting for better figures to be returned.

    The MJD gives a constant mileage of 14.1 to 15.5 On highways when the engine is new. Please wait, you'll get a solid mileage later! :)

    i dunno how and what happened.
    but it was after i changed my rims to 16"


    my linea that gave me an average of 29.1kmpl for a stretch of 170 kms, gave me an average of 17kmpl in highway and 8kmpl in city( bangalore) for almost 2000kms after changing the rims.

    but now my average has increased and i'm getting close to 24 kmpl in the highway and 15kmpl in the city.

    my driving style has not changed but i'm still trying to find the reason why my car showed so much of variation.

    i have a feeling that the ecu wanted some time to adapt to the bigger rims and this was the time when my car gave lesser average values.

    I did a 800 kms trip to Kerala last week and the highest highway mileage I got was 17 kmpl. That was on Bangalore-Mysore-Hunsur road. After Hunsur I entered patches of bad roads and mileage started falling, but never below 15 kmpl. Interesting point is Punto gives the best mileage at 80kmph. Running above or below 80 kmph reduces FE. I am trying to find out how I can drive at 80 in Bangalore city.

    And remember this is 1.4 Petrol.

    Multijet indeed returns very very good mileage! :eek:

    We got 19.3 kmpl from our Jet from Dehradun to Poanta Sahib (dist: 56 km) on way to Chandigarh with normal traffic and AC off. Final FE on reaching Chandigarh dropped to 14.3. Main culprit(s): AC (after Poanta) and Himachal's pathetic roads.
