happy dussera to you too mihir. i had also put up a similar garland on my linea on the day.
Love the ORVM's and the DRL's Mihir!
Got a new accessory for my beauty.... A metal keychain with FIAT centenary logo.....
Great upkeep mihir, your car looks awesome.
About the mileage, it wont go more than 12-13 in city and 14-15 on a highway. I am pretty sure about it.
Mine 1.2 Active cones home with 13.8 in City driving and 15.7 on Highway running, AC on all times,
@marvin patrick gray: thanks dude.
and hey even i get the same mileage of about 12-13 in the city, but never crossed 13. but mine is just 3000km old so i suppose will increase with time. is it so? @tony: please throw some light on this...
Hye Mihir .. Great modifications on a grand car ... My hearty congrats mate ..
I follow the following steps while driving.:
No unnecessary accelerating when the car is Idle
Driving with proper gear and not raising the rpm of engine more..
Leave the accelerator when u see the red light or the orange light gown,
Turn off the engine on stop light.
BUT when required i just press the Accelerator Hard to make others eat dust, That means Harsh Zip Zapping and i get 12.2 in City and 13.3 on Highway (I really drive like the 90 HP hahahahaha)
@ Tony & Mihir :- Apart from the regular no-nonsense driving i keep the screen to INSTANT AVERAGE mode which shows me the mileage on a real-time basis. It fluctuates as you drive and sometimes goes to a max of 50kmpl. So this way i keep an eye on it and try to be in the bracket of 20-25 most of the times, which returns me a mileage of 12-13 in city. Don't forget that Punto's kerb weight is in excess of 1200kgs so its 1200cc engine works a little extra to pull this weight. The best i expect from my car is 13-14 on a regular basis in city. 15-16 kmpl is a distant dream unless you live in Chandigarh and take out the car in odd hours i.e. before 9 a.m. and after 10 p.m.
