    @nikhil0405 : When you hit the highway next time, set your speed limit to 100 km/hr (adhere to it as well :D) and operate at 1750-2500 RPM, which means stay on higher gears and then see the result. It should give you at least 19-20. On the highways, I operate at higher RPMs (>3K RPMs) and then also get 16.xx.

    For city, anything above 13 (with 100% AC) is good IMO.

    Thanks @Turbothinghy

    My speed limit is set to 100km/hr . I recently also changed the air filter. I am used to driving a petrol car. I think it might have to do with my driving style

    Yup even my 90 HP was my first diesel car and it took sometime to get used to it. And actually its not about petrol car, but a turbo car, which all nowadays diesels are equipped with. A turbo car is meant to be driven differentky when compared to NA car. Start watching the RPM instead of the speedometer for sometime, until you get used to it, and the MJD will take care of FE. Above everything else, enjoy the drive :D

    How many km's has the car run and when was the purchase.? I'm also using multijet emotion new model. Just run 15000km, and was getting 16.6-18 ACA in city limits and 18-23.5 ACA on highways.

    Why do you need 60:40 split rear seats when the boot is humongous (500 ltr)? This makes more sense for a hatchback as they don't have much of boot space.
