    Dear Members,

    Took the delivery of my Linea T Jet Tuscan Wine Emotion on Sep 9th, 2013, on an auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The Dealership experience with Pandit Auto, Model Colony, was very warm, helping and forthcoming.

    Due to crowded roads during Ganapati days, the movement of car was restricted to few places, and yesterday finally decided to take a Mumbai trip. Started at 0600 hrs and reached Fort area in flat 3 hours with peak speed of 110 KMPH, took Express Way, and Eastern freeway. However, on return , evening time, the Eastern freeway was blocked at entry and exit, and came through a crowded Friday returning traffic of Mumbai to Pune... 5 hours flat . During the journey, the car was stable beyond doubt, and at no point it has any stress, at any speed.

    Being a Siena ELX Petrol user for last 14 years, this car has some startling differences, especially with power and comfort.. however on consumption pattern it is more of a confusion.

    So far clocked 800 odd kilometres, and yet to learn many things and techniques. Just sharing few points :

    1. All wheels of the car are 17" metallic alloy, tubelss, however the Spare tyre provided , was 16" and normal wheel. The reason , we accepted from dealership is
    a> Reminder to get re-instate the original 17" in quickest possible time.
    B> cost reduction...

    2. A little accounting on fuel bills and display of following details and records may provide some inputs for those who are an expert in this arena , on ever depleting levels of AVG A & AVG B... and a kind advice on, "to improve my financial position.." as a reciprocation is highly welcome..! Also attached the photos, which I took as enthusiasm , proves to be very helpful...

    Bandoo - congrats on your buy. Fret not buddy, your mileage is actually improving. Those pictures tell me that the value is litres / 100 kms, so the lesser the better, ain't it :D

    Will check the manual and guide on how to change that tp kmpl, unless someone beats me to it.
