    I am getting way too low mileage

    I use Punto 1.3 MJD in Bangalore City with 70% AC on. The mileage has been pathetic in the range of 11 to 12 which is way too lower than claim of 21 Km/Lt. Any advises/suggestions?:anyone

    P.S.I haven't got my first service done yet. It's clocked about 4100 Km.

    My mileage on that road was around 16-17 !! i couldnt resist myself when i saw those roads.. closed the windows and was doing constant 120-130 all the way !
    The max mileage was extracted when i drove at constant 80 all the way from tvm to ekm and got 23 with ac !!



    This same problem was there on my friends brand new punto which has run 2k kms , the mileage figures showing on the MID were dismal( in the tune of 10-12 only even for long drives) n he was dissapointed about it ! So finally went for a mileage run today with an SA from TASS. We filled it up to brim and rode for exact 60 kms and again filled it up by the same person to the same level. The guy rode it very rashly and even then we got a mileage of 16.8 (with AC)which was respectable..if he drove with a light foot, could have easily got 18-19kmpl. The avg mileage shown in the MID was 15kmpl for the same drive..

    I suggest you also do a similar run by yourself and calculate the mileage by this tankful method for your satisfaction.

    @someshvar what is your average speed according to Multi information display? FE greatly depends up on the driving style.For many Tfians the city FE will be 15 +/- 3. IMHO 21 for city is near impossible except for night drives when the traffic in not that dense.try up-shifting at 2000 rpm and do not lug the engine ( I maintain 1500-2000 rpm range).Accelerate and break gently do not drive aggressively. Show her some highway you will get more than the claimed FE with light foot. drive safe:)

    I always wondered whether a mileage of >22Kmpl was possible as claimed by fellow Tfians....
    So put my car to test yesterday .......
    Distance travelled : 22Km
    Mileage : 22.6KMPL :)
    Speed : 60 to 70 k in 4th gear....

    so it is possible.....one has to be light footed and careful...
