    Hi,

    Did you try to check fuel consumption by tank full to tank full method? after applying correction to the distance traveled and actual distance covered based on change on tyre profile? My suspicion is on the tyre size and accounting for difference in the distance/speed originally calibrated by the speedo/MID.

    Speedo error calculator

    Apart from the other fact posted by you change of Fuel filter and oil levels.

    Also shifting between 3000-3400 rpm seems higher, I have been changing at 2000-2500 rpm and have obtained decent fuel consumption values.

    Even my MID always shows an average of 8-9kmpl, whereas the actual average that I get on calculation of fuel filled against tripometer is around 17-19kmpl (city & highway together) with AC switched ON. I really thought that the calculation of MID was not to be totally believed, but it seems that I am incorrect. Does everyone's MID shows a figure that is nearly the same figure as the actual average?
