    Replaced ecu but not getting milege? OK let's forget this problem for some time.

    But what about problem of low power & sluggishness?

    that problem of sluggishness didnt appeared after that..and as it is unpredictable,i have to wait some more time whether it appear again or not.and in the case of power, i feel the engine is taking more strain when speeding more than 80kmph..
    also i couldnt feel the sudden kick in of turbo..after crossing the 2000 or even 2500rpm

    You would not get sudden kick of turbo in Linea. Because it has fitted VGT (Variablr Geometry Turbo).

    In VGT you get power in linear format.

    In 75 HP GP,MSwift,Vista & in other hatchback fitted with FGT (Fixed Geometry Turbo) gives sudden kick
    of Turbo.

    Because FGT wakes up at specific RPM while VGT gives small amount of boost right from idle RPM.

    Keep update. Coz my 90 HP also suffering same problem of power loss but little bit differance.

    My 90 runs well after 1600 RPM.
    But below 1600 RPM in any gear it has super-duper turbo lag & dull engine performance

    @ Vipin
    How you do calculate milege?
    Always reset tripmeter. & run the car w/o start & stop for
    at least 40-50 km .
    If you do frequent start/stopmilege may go down.

    2nd method- Try tankful to tankful method.
    This is the real method . Don't keep too much faith on Real Time Milege Indicator

    at what speeds do you drive normally on the highways? how much mileage did you get initially when you didn't have any problem with the car?

    at 80-90,you should be getting 20-22 easily,at least on MID.
