    First servicing is basically nothing but routine check-up. So ideally nothing should be impacted.
    However, do you remember what all they mentioned on your 1st servicing bill?

    Welcome aboard Sammy.

    Reset your tripmeter and start taking readings afresh.

    More often than not these guys can keep the car idling or drive at slow speeds within the workshop,or drive like Schumacher during trial run etc and that screws up the efficiency reading.

    Do it and revert back.

    Selenia is the brand name of the engine oil used in FIATs.

    The 14kmpl highway figure was for how many km's of driving?

    Sammy,

    There is no oil change due in the first service. Its just basic checkup. Were you charged for the oil change?

    My punto 90 hp gives me around 12-14 kmpl in city and around 17-20 on highway.. max i got is 24 kmpl on highway. As per my research, things should be fine (with my mileage) after second servicing.

    I again have a problem with the Blue n me system, this time the phone gets synched with the blue n me and keeps disconnecting very frequently. I am unable to make a call as well because of this frequent disconnection to test the system.
