    Clutch do tend to get hard on long drives and it is not with Fiat but with all cars. The basic reason is that with long drives the heat generated is continuous, not in the clutch but in total.With heat the spring tension will increase aand you will need more force to disengage.

    @Ganges

    You should have got done the clutch overhaul when you felt hard because you can calculate it that a FE drop of 2km average would have drained way more of your money then clutch expense.

    I always keep an close eye on Tripmeter.Never got mileage drop such a way.As soon I felt it, brought to the concern.Now feeling relaxed. After clutch change the car has been driven for 2K kms.Mileage also good. For a trip of 250Kms with AC On , got 20.0km/l. My car has shoes of 205/65/15 profile.

    You can check here ,it is mentioned with Sensor.Ask for without sensor.
    if you are located nearby FASS then better to get it replaced from FASS half n hour job.

    Here Anybody changed fuel filter with Bosch Brand?
    Because i have booked service with Bosch SC as my car is Out of warranty and SA recommends to go for Bosch AC,Air and fuel filter and also less cost compared to FCA.

    Bosch is a reputed brand. Should not have worries in using it. How much does the fuel filter costs with Bosch?
