    i had my car for servicing, they drove it for 25 kms and it returned 8.2 in the MID. so drive it sensibly keeping an eye on the IC dont let it drop too low and drive on higher gears when possible.

    +1

    My jet before delivery showed only 5.2 KMPL for 64 KMS :shocked. I took the delivery keeping in mind that I might get some 8+, but my drive gave me 12+ for next 700 KMS.

    It all depends on the driving style

    Thanks

    5.2kmpl means they would have been using the cars ac to cool while the car was parked in the yard or dealership. It obviously is not 64km of driving only.

    Results from Improved driving- After adjusting driving habits, I have an improved mileage . However, I am very Puzzeld.
    The Average cosumption in the MID shows 17.3 Kmpl, whereas the fuel consumption measure using tank full-tank empty method is 11.2 Kmpl. I have very little idling time and I do switch of the engine when I have to idle.
    So my problem of fuel consumption still remain - 1) the fuel efficiency is low 2) the MID indicated FE and the actual by tank full to tank empty methos vary drastically.
    Ány suggestions on how to proceed with this?

    @Sri- You were getting a FE of less than 10 earlier. Now its 11.2kmpl.
    11.2 kmpl for a 1300Kg sedan is good if this in city or city+highway. Compare this with other cars in the segment.
    What's your usage pattern? City, highway or both? AC on or off?
